If my child wasn’t chosen for Camp, can he/she be eligible for another event’s lottery?

Since each event’s lottery is over the same few days, we will be selecting children for each event at the same time.

 

Can my child be placed on the waitlist if they weren’t selected in the lottery?

Yes! If your child was not selected in the lottery, they will be added to the waitlist automatically. Please make sure to check emails and calls on a regular basis since spots might become available throughout the year.

 

We missed the lottery, is there still time to get us into the lottery?

Since we have so many children who would like to join us, we will have a hard cut off at noon on October 30th. at 12:00 PM (MST). If you have missed the lottery window completely, you may still join our wait list after October. There is a low probability that you will be called to fill a spot but last minute openings may become available.

Absolutely! Please share this link with all your friends and family.

My child cannot get another physical until April. Will they lose their spot for camp?

Nope! All of the forms EXCEPT the Medical Form is due within 10 days of registration. The Medical Form will be due April 15 along with your child’s vaccination records. If this is a problem to get in before the deadline (insurance time frames, etc.) please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

We hear that Camp Wojtyla fills up extremely quickly. Is it even worth joining the lottery for a spot?
