CAMP REGISTRATION

Summer Blast Camp

Due to facility restrictions at this time we will be handling Pre-Camp Registration via email. If you would like to register your child(ren) in our Summer Blast camp, please follow the directions below.

Please complete the Summer Blast Camp Pre-Registration Packet (one for each child) and return via email to Alexandra.MacDonell@mymanatee.org. If you would like to register (payment required) your child(ren) for specific weeks to secure their space, please be sure to note the exact week(s) for each child in the body of the email. In the order we receive your child's completed registration form we will proceed with pre-registering your child(ren), then we will send a confirmation email with instructions allowing you 24 hours to submit payment by visiting the "Register Online" link found below. If full payment has not been received within 24 hours, we will remove the weekly registrations from your account, therefore forfeiting your child(ren)'s spot and opening to the next received registration. The $10 Pre-Camp Registration total will remain, allowing you to proceed with payment and re-register as space allows.

Basketball Camp for ages 7 to 12 runs 1 week, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm each day.
