Virtual Waiting Room for Online Registration

Summer Camp Registration will feature the virtual waiting room.

On registration day, login to the site as usual. All users logged in will automatically enter a virtual waiting room where they will receive a random spot in line.


Once it’s your turn to register, you will be redirected to the registration site where you can browse the site and complete your transactions at your own speed.


You will keep your place in the waiting room line even if your device goes to sleep, you lose your internet connection or you close the virtual waiting room page, provided you log back in on the same device using the same browser.
