Camp class assignments

During the registration process, campers choose four camp classes per session and two alternate classes.

Every effort is made to assign campers to their top choices, however, there are no guarantees. Camp LCTI reserves the right to close classes that reach maximum capacity or cancel classes due to low enrollment. Remember, registration is not complete until we receive payment.
