    Below is a registration link. Space is VERY limited.  Sign up today and forward this to a friend so they don't miss out.

    Camper registration is $35 for students ages 9-16. The Camper + Friend bundle is $70 if an adult (18+) would like to attend as well.  They will be in the same group as their student.   They get ALL the perks including lunch, snacks, printing and display of their work if desired.
