Please read the following information carefully.

If you are having trouble at any point in the account creation or registration processes, we are here to help! However, we ask that you reference the information below to see if your question can be answered before contacting us – our call and email volume during registration is extremely high, and we may not be able to get back to you right away.

Tips & Troubleshooting

How do I add my participants/dependents?
When you are logged-in to the rec portal, click your name in the top-right corner and then "profile." Your information details will appear. At the bottom of the page, click "ADD FAMILY" to open up a box to enter your child's information.

What is the fee structure?
Youth Programs has a single-price fee structure, so all families pay the same. Price ranges may be shown for programs that have offerings Week 4, a Tues-Fri only session. The lower price is prorated for that short week.

How does the installment plan 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 50%) for each program you enroll in. Outstanding balances must be paid in full by June 1. We accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express online.

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 21. 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?
Waitlists will open after open registration on April 16th. Once a camp session has reached its maximum capacity, the waitlist will automatically become activated and you can add your child's name to the waitist. Participants will be notified if and when a spot becomes available. 

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.
