To register, visit Before registering, be sure to have an updated online account. Parents and guardians will need to update and confirm their child’s grade (the grade they will be going into after the summer). First-time users can also create an account.

The Vail Rec District will allow entry into camp based on Eagle County Public Health’s recommendations and requirements regarding residency, group size, etc., and will contact participants to confirm if and when they have been moved from the waitlist to an enrolled status. Organizers recommend signing up starting Monday for all preferred dates, and then sending registration forms to to be appropriately prioritized for enrollment.
