F.A.Q.

Do we just drop off our kids?

You can, but we’d like for you to come sign them in. Unless it’s KLU. Then, you can drop them off, or teens with a license can drive themselves.

Are there forms to fill out?

Forms will be taken care of at registration.

How do we register?

At the top of the page, there should be a button that says, “Click Here to Register.” This will take you to community pass to make an account, where you will be able to register for upcoming camps.
