Day Camp Frequently Asked Questions

Contact us


What do I need to do before registering?

  • Create your account in advance.
  • Adding at least one emergency contact is highly recommended.
  • Add each child as an Account Member, be prepared to share their name and birthday.
  • When toggling the “Use Parent Information” button, you do not need to enter address or email information.

What are some tips for registering online?

  • Once you have set up your account, practice going into the registration site and selecting participants.
  • If you are on a mobile device, you can choose “Desktop Version” from the dropdown in the upper left-hand corner.
  • Be prepared to enter information about:
    • Emergency contacts.
    • Medical conditions.
    • Additional adults that are authorized to pickup your child.
  • Sessions can fill quickly. Add the registration opening date and times to your calendar and set a reminder for shortly before it opens. Summer 2022 registration opens Tuesday, February 1 at 9:30 a.m.

Is a waitlist available if a session is full?

Yes! We refer to the waitlist when programs open up. The waitlist is the best place to be if you want to receive communication about open spots or another session being added.

Do I have to pay for my spot when I choose to go on a waitlist?

No, putting yourself on the waitlist simply lets us know you might be interested in the program. If a spot opens up, you will receive an email from us asking if you are still interested. If so, we will take payment at the time of activation into the program or camp.

What if I don’t receive a receipt?

Receipts will come from Ramsey County Parks & Recreation. Users occasionally have issues with not receiving their receipts. If you checked your spam folder, and don’t see it, please email [email protected]. We can confirm your registration and email you a receipt for your records.

My child has a severe allergy or other special needs. Should I include this information in the registration process?

If your child has special needs due to allergies, disabilities or health concerns, please make appropriate notes on the registration form. We can accommodate many concerns with advance notice. If your child requires the use of epinephrine or Benadryl, a form for completion by a parent/guardian and a health care provider can be found on our day camp policies page.

COVID-19 information

What safety precautions will you have in place this year?

Current programming guidelines are subject to change as new information and recommendations become available. Currently, we anticipate the following as the biggest changes to day camp:

  • As of March 1, 2022, masks are no longer required in Ramsey County buildings. Masks are recommended for those who are unvaccinated, immunocompromised or at high-risk for complications associated with COVID-19. Masks are available for visitors who need them.
  • All day camps will be outdoors. Indoor space will be available for extreme weather conditions pending availability.
