[ARCHIVED] Mark Your Calendar: Summer Day Camp Registration

Summer is just around the corner — and now is the time to start planning for our summer day camps!

Registration for day camps staffed by the Issaquah Parks & Recreation Department begins at noon March 5, 2017 — online only! Please review our online registration checklist and FAQs.

Phone or walk-in registration will be available beginning March 6. Call 425-837-3300.

Questions? Review our day camp Parent Manual for more details.

 

Online Registration Checklist

  • Log into your account in advance to verify your information is correct. Need help? Call 425-837-3300 before noon March 3.
  • Verify your residency status (which is not based on school district boundaries). Go online and type in your address to see if you are an Issaquah resident or nonresident.
  • Know which camp you are registering for, and if you will register for swimming lessons (available for Kindercamp and Camp ‘Quah) or extended care ($28 per week, not available for Mighty Mites).
  • Decide if you will pay in full, or schedule payments with a Visa or MasterCard. Scheduled payments require a $40 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit for each week of camp. If you are scheduling payments, decide if you would like to sign up for automatic payments or pay the balance two weeks prior to each week of camp.
  • Know the T-shirt size of your camper.


Registration FAQs

What if I have issues with online registration on Sunday?

Call 425-837-3300 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. If the lines are busy, do not leave a message, and please try calling again later.

Can I pay in person, over the phone or with cash/check?

Yes. However, you will not be able to register until 8 a.m. March 6. Some camps may already be filled after March 5.

What if I don’t know if I need extended care yet?

You can add extended care later as we get closer to summer.

Can I register for swimming lessons at a later date?

Yes, but we cannot guarantee that there will be space.

Why would I want to purchase a second camp T-shirt?

We ask that that campers wear their camp shirt at least two days each week.

Will the camps fill up March 5?

It is hard to predict. In the past, camps fill or get very close to filling on the first day of registration.

Camps are full! Can I add my child to a waiting list?

Yes! Click on the waitlist button. Your camper will then be put on the waitlist. No money will be collected at this time. We will contact you if a spot becomes available.

Do you offer scholarships?

Yes! Scholarship applications are due Feb. 27.
