Greetings from Camp, Friends!
We’ve been thinking of you, and hope your back-to-school transitions have gone as smoothly as possible. It’s too quiet around here for our taste – we prefer laughter, songs, cheers and chants; needless to say, we’re missing our campers! Plans are already underway for our 63rd season, and we can’t wait until Opening Day (June 27th), when we can all be together again. To that end, below you will find all of the information you’ll need to apply for your camper(s) for summer 2022. We hope you will find this guide to be helpful, but certainly let us know if you have any further questions.
First and foremost, The 2022 Camper Application will open next Wednesday, September 22nd, at 12pm. Click here to see dates and pricing.
As always, we’re dedicated to a fair and transparent enrollment process. Please read the following information carefully, and in advance, to avoid any confusion as you look to enroll your campers for 2022:
- All applications are date and time stamped. We strongly encourage you to consider applying as early as possible in order to secure your spot. (Last year, sessions began filling just 6 minutes after the application opened for some age groups.)
- Enrollment will be processed based on family longevity until September 29th (see details below). After that time, enrollment will be on a first come, first served basis, with longevity status no longer taken into account. Even if you are not a past camper family, we strongly encourage you to apply as early as possible, (on or after September 22nd at 12:00pm), as we will be enrolling according to the date/time stamp on each online application, beginning on October 4th.
- We are so appreciative of the families that have made Sewataro their second home, and as our way of honoring your commitment, we will be enrolling in order of family longevity. Applications received between 9/22 – 9/29 will be sorted by the number of years your family has attended Sewataro, and enrolled in that order. To take advantage of this longevity status, you must submit your application by September 29th. Applications received after September 29th will be processed on a first come, first served basis, and longevity status will no longer be taken into account.
- We will begin our enrollment process on October 4th. Once you have submitted your application, you should receive an email confirming that your application was received. This does not mean your child is enrolled. Once we enroll your child, (pending availability), you will receive a second email confirming enrollment.
*If the session you applied for is full, we will reach out with other available options.
A couple of notes about the application itself:
*When asked to provide your child’s grade, please put in your child’s current grade, (not their grade next Fall), to ensure placement accuracy.
*If you choose to pay your deposit by check, we must have the check in hand within seven days of your application; all deposits must be received before your child will be enrolled.
Last but not least…
The enrollment process is lengthy, and we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding. If you don’t hear from us for a few weeks, it just means we’re still working on it! It could take as long as 6-8 weeks for us to get through all of the applications.
If you have any questions about any of this, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
With warmth and appreciation,
Amy, Emmy, Cheryl, Jeannine and Ciaran
