Thank you and stay safe!

By using SignUp Genius we will no longer be sending out confirmation emails. If you sign up, we expect that you will mark your calendar and honor your commitment. The system will send out a reminder email 2-3 days before the activity to the email address you used to login with SignUp Genius. If something comes up where you cannot go, it is your responsibility to remove your name from SignUp Genius as soon as possible to free up spots for others and for us to plan accordingly. If you are canceling or adding within 24 hours of the activity, please contact Tania Harrick directly. The number of spots available is a little generous to make sure we have enough. We will contact you if we need to wait list anyone. The sign ups are time/date stamped; it will be first come first serve but with first priority to anyone wait listed previously or with parents chaperoning. Please refer to the descriptions below for drop off and pick up instructions.
