How to register, find us, park, etc. for first-time clients and visitors
Registration requires clients to set up an account. There’s no obligation or additional fees. When setting up an account the required information is name, email, and phone number. Each registrant for each event will need to have their own account. This ensures a space and materials (if applicable) for each participant. It also gives us the ability to inform every attendee if there are any changes to the schedule due to weather or illness. Accounts for minors can be managed by parent or guardian client accounts.
Once you have an account, you will be able to navigate the calendar and enroll in a variety of programs without first finding them on our website. We recommend using the week calendar view so that the individual programs are visible. Daily list views and and lists by category are also available.
