T-SHIRTS: 
One camp t-shirt is provided with registration; one additional shirt may be purchased at time of registration for a fee of $15. Camp t-shirts are required on scheduled field trip days. Campers will receive their t-shirt(s) on the first day they are at camp.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We will not be accepting payments from DHHS or the State Childcare Subsidy Program, so we encourage families to utilize the town’s financial assistance program. Once Summer Camp registration is open, scholarships are available through Town of Windham Social Services. After registering your child(ren) for camp and paying the $150 per child deposit, you will need to complete a 2024 Summer Day Camp Financial Assistance application and schedule an interview with Rene Daniel by calling 892-1906. Once the scholarship is applied, the parent/guardian will usually have a balance due prior to camp starting. If the scholarship covers the total cost of camp, the $150 deposit will be refunded. All financial assistant applications are due by Thursday, May 23.

PAYMENT PLAN:
We now offer a new type of payment plan; however, all payments are due by June 6th with no exceptions. There is an 11-week period when registration opens on Monday, March 25, until final payment is due on Thursday, June 6. We can set up an account payment plan (APP) for you that will automatically charge the credit card on your account. The frequency of payment plans can be set every week, bi-weekly, or monthly, but please note there is a 3% convenience fee charged on every payment made. We are unable to set up a payment plan on your account using different payment methods, but you may create your own payment plan and stop into the office at your convenience to make partial payments up until payments are due in full on June 6.

WAITING LIST:
If camp is full, please add your child(ren) to the waiting list. If we are able to add more campers into camp we will contact you by phone. The number of campers is based on the number of staff and transportation, and we will do our best to take as many campers as possible.

2024 Discover Camp Membership is an addition to camp registration and is REQUIRED before checking out. Additional camp forms can be found below.

If you have any question or concerns, please reach out to us by calling (207) 892-1905 or emailing parks&recreation@windhammaine.us.
