  • Employees must use their University email address for registration.
  • Enrollment in these programs does not use tuition remission credits.

To ensure a smooth registration please:

Once you apply online:

  1. Your registration will be pending and you will be placed on a waitlist until March 15th, at which time the University will confirm eligibility. If your child is not listed in Banner Web as your dependent at the time of registration, they will not be admitted.
  2. If your child is accepted into a camp and transferred from the waitlist into the camp, you will receive two confirmation emails from Active Network by April 1st.
  3. If the maximum class registration was met prior to your registration, you will remain on the wait list and will be notified if there is a cancellation and a spot becomes available.

Cancellation Fees

If your child is enrolled in a camp and will be unable to attend, please notify Little Scholars as soon as possible. This will allow those who are on the wait list to take advantage of the vacated spot. Please see below for important information regarding applicable cancellation fees.

  1. No additional fee will be charged if you cancel a camp by May 15, 2019.
  2. An administrative fee of $50 per camp will be charged if you cancel a camp after May 15, 2019. This fee will be deducted from the employee’s next paycheck.
  3. If a participant does not provide cancellation notice prior to the start of a camp and the participant does not attend, a no-show fee of $100 will be deducted from the eligible employee’s next paycheck. Exceptions will be made for a child’s illness if a legitimate doctor’s note is provided.

When you complete the Waitlist Registration, you will receive two emails from Active Network:
