SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION UPDATE
We appreciated your patience and the good vibes sent our way as staff worked through the unexpected summer camp and swim lesson registration system glitch that occurred on Summer Camp Expo Day (2/25). We apologize for the inconvenience and working with the registration software provider to ensure this unexpected registration failure does not happen in the future. Please see the updates below:
Update on 3/15/23 at 10:00 am: BACK TO NORMAL
Registration for our summer camps and swim lesson is now "back to normal". Our staff has finished working through all the summer camp/swim lesson waiting lists erroneously created due to the registration glitch on Summer Camp Expo Day (2/25). If you did not receive an email invitation, the camp or swim lesson you were waitlisted for, is full. Any waitlists now are "true" waitlists and discounts will not apply. If a space opens up in the future, we will reach out via email.
Update on 2/25/23 at 1:20 pm: CHECK EMAIL!
If you tried to register for a summer camp this morning and were put on the waitlist due to an unfortunate technical glitch in the system, our camp staff is working through all the waitlists now.
LOOK FOR AN EMAIL INVITATION!
We are sending an email invitation to the first group of people on the waitlist for camps that have availability based on the camp's max capacity. This first group will have 24 hours to respond. If we don't hear back from you, we will move to the next group, etc.
We will use the email you have on file in our registration system. If you don't receive an email (again, check all spam folders), you will still remain on the waitlist. Please be patient, it may take a few days to sort all this out. Our District offices reopen on Monday at 9:00 am. Keep updated at pleasanthillrec.com/493
GOOD VIBES DISCOUNT
We will also extend the registration deadline for the automatic 10% discount on week-long camps and swim lessons until Monday, 2/27 at 11:59 pm to keep the good summer vibes going! If you are still on
Update on 2/25/23 at 10:30 am: TECHNOLOGY GLITCH DISCOVERED
We are experiencing an unfortunate glitch in our online registration system with some of our popular camps (Summer Rec Camp & Adventure Kids Camp) and some others as well.
Please join the waitlist in the registration system for these impacted camps. We will fill the camps based on position number until full and honor the 10% discount. We will contact you via email to let you know your status next week. If you are unable to join the waitlist, that means the waitlist is full as well. Please explore all our other wonderful options.
