Camp class assignments

During the registration process, campers choose four camp classes per session and two alternate classes. Campers are assigned to classes on a first-come, first-served basis, so early registrants are more likely to get their top choices. Some classes, like this year’s Wooden Wonders, are only available for one session. 

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.

Camper’s class schedules will arrive via email before camp begins. Hard copies of campers’ class schedules will be provided on the first day of camp.
