Registration is accepted on a first come, first served basis.  Non-residents pay $10.00 more for most programs.

A $10 fee is added to most programs 1 week before the program begins.

Registration deadline (unless otherwise specified) for all programs is one week before the program begins. A late fee of $10.00 will be added to the program fee when registering after the deadline.
