Tips & Troubleshooting

Why is there a price range?
Youth Programs has a single-price fee structure, so all families pay the same. Price ranges may be shown for programs which have offerings Week 3, a Mon-Thu only session. The lower price is prorated for that short week.

How do down payments work?
We are very excited to now offer installment plans! This provides families more flexibility in paying for camps. You can choose to pay in full or pay a deposit (about 30%) for each program you enroll in. Outstanding balances will be invoiced April 1 and May 1, and must be paid in full by June 1. We accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express online.

How do I enroll multiple children at a time?
The portal does not allow multiple registrations simultaneously; however, once you've completed all steps for one child and arrive in the cart, click Continue Shopping to add another registration.

I'm not seeing camps when I browse or search.
In the left-hand sidebar, choose Classification: Youth Programs (you'll need to scroll) and Terms: YP Summer 20. You can then filter by age/grade under Category.

Why do you categorize by grade level if the system uses age restrictions?
Camper experience is enhanced when interacting with peers at or around their developmental level. Age isn't always the best indicator of that level. Unfortunately, the portal doesn't allow restrictions by grade level, only by age, so we did our best to align the two (see Typical Ages on our grouping guide). If you run into an error trying to enroll a child that doesn't meet the age requirements, send us an email so we can work through it together.

What about waitlists?
No program will reach maximum capacity during priority enrollment. Waitlists are available when open enrollment begins Mon, March 9 at Noon.

I can't log in!
UC Davis affiliates should choose UC Davis Login and see the Central Authentication Service (CAS) page. You must use the credentials you created for UC Davis services. If you're not sure, visit this link.
Community members should choose the Other Patrons login option and use the credentials you created when setting up your portal account. Community member credentials will not work on the Central Authentication Service (CAS) login page.

I didn't complete any forms or sign any waivers. Did I miss something?
Great question! We wanted your registration experience to be as quick and seamless as possible, so forms and waivers will be collected at a later date.
