INFORMATION AND REGISTRATION POLICY


Camp enrollment is NOT on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Please read the policy below to understand enrollment priority.


1. Camp enrollment will occur in two distinct registration time frames: 

     

     a. Returning member sailors will be offered space in the program in the first two weeks of January, generally beginning on the first business day of January.   Returning member families will receive an invitation to register when this priority registration period is open.

     

     b. All others can register beginning January 15 starting at 7pm. 


2. Returning sailors of Club Member families (parents or grandparents) and their sibling(s) who register during the Returning Member Sailor Registration will be enrolled in the program, subject to space constraints.  Criteria in order of preference which will be used to determine enrollment for applicants who register during the Returning Member Sailor Registration period are as follows:


    a. Returning sailors of club member families (parents or grandparents) and their sibling(s). In the event there are more returning member sailors and siblings than space allows, preference will be given to applicants whose sponsoring Parent or relative has been a member for a longer duration. A returning sailor is a sailor who has participated in the program for at least one entire session in a prior year.


3.  Applicants who register during the Open Registration will be prioritized using criteria defined below.


Criteria in order of preference which will be used to determine enrollment for applicants who register during the Open Registration period are as follows:


    a. Returning sailors of club member families (parents or grandparents) and their sibling(s). 


    b. New sailors of club member families, prioritized by seniority of membership. A new member family must be a member in good standing at the time of registration in order to be able to qualify for members’ priority.


    c. Returning non-member sailor. Preference will be given to previous participants of the IYC Youth Sailing program in order of length of participation.


    d. New non-member sailor based on space availability. 


4. Enrollment decisions are at the committee’s discretion to balance age and skill levels.  Enrollment decisions will be emailed to applicants on February 11. Those who apply during Open Registration who are not enrolled due to space limitations will be put on the waiting list in the order as determined by the criteria above. 


5. A complete online application and electronically signed Waiver form, as well as payment of fees, are required for registration to be considered complete.


6. Please note the following schedule for refunds of camp fees:


     - withdrawal from camp by March 1 = full refund


     - withdrawal from camp by April 1 = 50% refund


     - withdrawal from camp by April 15 = 25% refund
