Enrollment Policy

The Parks & Recreation Department offers programs to Lincoln Residents.  Participants are accepted on a first come, first serve basis, once registration is open.  Participants must register and pay in full prior to attending any programs.

Non-Residents

Non-Lincoln Residents will be accepted on a space-available basis.  There is an extra $40 per week charge.

Registration

All registrations must be accompanied by a $60 per week non-refundable deposit. Registrations can be made up to 12:00 pm the Friday before a camp week starts.  Once you have registered, you will receive an email from CampDoc requesting you to complete your camper’s paperwork online.

Payment

Please make all checks payable to the Town of Lincoln.  Cash, Visa & MasterCard are also accepted.

Waitlist

If the camp week you register for is FULL, you will be notified and placed on a waitlist.  If an opening becomes available we will contact you.

Financial Assistance

A limited amount of financial aid is available for Lincoln Residents.  The deadline for submitting a Financial Aid application is April 1st and awards will be made by April 12th.  Application forms are at http://www.lincolnrec.com or in the PRD Office.

Campership Drive

If you are able to support other Lincoln children who cannot afford summer camp, the Parks & Recreation Department has a way for you to help.  Last year over 10% of our campers received financial assistance. If you’d like to contribute to our Campership Fund, we will see to it that the money helps other Lincolnites attend. Donations of all amounts are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible.

Registration Period

This is the period from the day online registration opens until 12 NOON on the Friday before the first day of the camp week in question. NO CHANGES to the camper’s registration can be made after this period. EARLY REGISTRATION ends on May 31st and weekly camp fees increase by $60 on June 1st. See table on page 12 for more information.

Wiggle Week

This is the week PRIOR to the first day of a given camp week. It is defined as Monday AM to Friday 12 NOON. During this period of time, camper fees will NOT be refunded unless the cancelled slot can be filled. The $60 deposit will STILL be retained. Again, NO CHANGES to the camper’s registration can be made after 12 noon on the Friday of the Wiggle Week.

Cancellations

  • · Before the Wiggle Week, the $60 non-refundable deposit will be held for all cancellations.

Group Requests

Multiple groups will be created for each program as enrollment dictates. You must submit any placement requests at least one-full week prior to the start of your child’s camp session in writing to the directors. If your request cannot be honored for some reason, we will contact you.
