Frequently Asked Questions

Although we do not know the exact ratios until after registration closes, we like to have one leader for every eight students.
Someone on staff will call the phone number you provided us when you registered your student.
Please indicate this in your student’s registration.
Many factors play into this decision, and parents are often surprised to learn that our events do not pay for themselves. There is a portion of our yearly Transit budget that supplements the event cost. Some cost factors include: facility rental, transportation, camp production, medical professionals, security, lifeguards, and much more. Also, since we ask so much of our small group leaders, we use the cost of registration to cover their expenses for attending. So, when you pay for your student to attend one of our events, a portion of that money is used to cover the cost of his or her small group leader.
We are excited to say that we have added the medical insurance and information to the registration page. No additional forms are needed.
