Camp Registration Information

Register your student online through our website (except for Chess Camp and Theater Camp) by June 9, 2022.

  • You must log in to your CRS PTA account to register for summer camp. If you have not created an account on our website yet, please create an account first (you do not need to be a PTA member to create an account). For account setup assistance, read Account Help.

  • There is a $15 cancellation fee if you need to withdraw your registration. If you need to cancel your registration or change your student's camp, please contact summercamps@churchillroadpta.org. We must receive requests no later than 7 business days before the start of the camp.

  • If we cancel a camp due to not meeting the minimum enrollment, we will contact you ASAP. You can move the registration to a different camp (and pay the difference in price if applicable), OR we will issue a refund check in full within two weeks of cancellation. Camps that have already met their minimum enrollments will have a note of "CONFIRMED" next to the session dates.

  • Refunds will exclude the $10 handling fee per camp to cover credit card processing costs.

  • Students do not need to be attending CRS to attend the camps (but must be in one of the specified grades, as applicable).

  • COVID-19: If we must cancel a camp due to COVID-19, we will refund summer camp fees less the $10 processing fee per camp.

  • Registrations and cancellations for Theater Camp are managed by Rise Up Theater and for Chess Camp by the U.S. Chess Center. Please use the registration links and contact information noted below for the respective camps.

Note: For camp withdrawal requests (for camps registered through the CRS PTA) after June 30th (but before the start of the respective camp), the processing of approved refunds will be delayed until we have completed our annual financial review. Our fiscal year ends June 30th every year.
