Here's a “how to” before you click through to actually start the process. You can leave this open in a browser window to refer back, if you are on a desktop computer.
Make sure you have this information ready to go, because you can’t register without it.
When you open up the registration page (by clicking that blue REGISTER NOW button), you will see a Session List, that shows the dates for all 8 weeks The Marsh is open this summer (two pages worth).
There are two listings for each week – one for 4 and 5 year olds, and the other for 6 – 14 year olds. If you don’t need to use both, you can use the age filter on the left to make the ones that don’t apply disappear.
Select the proper week(s) and age category(s) for the kids you want to register, by clicking the blue “add to cart” box of the appropriate listing(s). You can click it multiple times if you have more that one child in that category attending that week. Or you can adjust quantity using the drop down in the shopping cart.
It is best if you add ALL sessions for ALL kids for the whole summer at this time.
Once all the weeks you want to register for are in your shopping cart, double check that you got the ages right, then click the orange “continue” button.
It will ask you to enter an email – this will be how you access your account in the future, just enter the address you want the account tied to. Or if you already have an ACTIVE account, use that email. Then click “next” right underneath.
You will go through each session you selected and assign which child will attend and choose some options.
Hit the orange continue button, and it will pop open the next session for customizing. The original child will be selectable in the drop down, since it already has their info, or you can add another child and their info.
As you complete each session, hit continue until you have gone through all the sessions in your cart.
For each child, work your way through the form to record emergency contacts, health history, insurance info, etc. All this is required for camp, and this way you don’t have to worry about bringing forms to camp with you.
Continue until you have information entered for all the children you are registering.
Next enter your information, as the primary parent or guardian. You may add an additional parent at this point if you wish, but it is not critical. Hit continue when your info is entered.
Probably get some coffee – next job is to read through waivers and agreements – there is one for The Marsh for each child, then one for ACTIVE as well.
Once you read through them, check to agree, and then either write your signature, or select “type your signature” to type it in.
Then you are ready to “continue to cart!”
You can review all the registrations you have made before checking out.
After you have reviewed your cart, you can choose yes or no to Registration Protection – this is through a third-party company, and not something that The Marsh is involved with.
From there, choose pay in full, or select a payment plan (the closer we are to camp, the fewer plan options there are, and everyone must be paid in full by June 1*) and enter your card information. Then you can choose a password so you can access this account later (think how easy this will be next year!) and then hit the orange “complete” button.
*If you are registering after June 1, you will need to pay in full when you register.
You did it!
You registered for The Marsh! You are the hero, and probably deserve a cookie from WaWa. Or if you registered more than one kid, maybe a pirate donut from Chesapeake Bay Coffee?
GOOD JOB! SEE YOU SOON!
