Registration Procedures

Please carefully read the Hammond Summer Programs Handbook (located under "downloads" on this page), as it contains the program's discount information, policies, procedures, and other essential information. Enrollment for all summer programs are open to both Hammond and non-Hammond students and families. Enrollment for most programs is limited and is on a “first-come, first-served” basis, so register early!

Online registration for Summer Programs is scheduled to begin in January. Registration for all of our Summer Programs must be completed online through the registration system. Our online registration will help make the process quick and easy. After registering for one program families may use their username and password to add or change contact and account information including credit card payment.

A non-refundable deposit of $75 per full-day program and $50 for all other programs is required at the time of registration; however, you may also elect to pay in full. Hammond does not bill families for payment and all fees must be paid in advance prior to attending a summer program. Remaining balances will be charged to accounts automatically through the online registration system for programs and camps one week prior to the scheduled program, camp, or offering start date. Registrations for any summer program offering scheduled 7 days or less to the start date must be paid in full at time of registration. Hammond only accepts payment through electronic funds transfer, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. Hammond does not pro-rate any program or camp fee for any reason.

    Families that wish to wait until the week of a scheduled summer program to register for summer programs that still have availability will be provided an opportunity to register on-site every Monday between 7:50 AM – 8:50 AM in the Lower School Gym.  Families using our on-site registration service will use an iPad to register their child(ren) for summer program offerings.  Full payments will be required for all summer program registrations the week of a scheduled program through our online summer registration process.

    Campers that have pre-ordered summer program apparel and accessories will receive them upon checking-in for summer program(s).  Additional purchases for summer program apparel and accessories will be available every Monday during check-in and on-site registration.

    All campers will be escorted to their programs site, unless their program is located near the Lower School Gym or South Campus.  Late registrations will not be accepted after Monday the week of the summer program is being offered.
  • Drop Off and Dismissal Procedures

    Campers are to be dropped off in their designated classroom or area, except on Monday’s. Every Monday all campers are to be checked-in at the Lower School Gym. After campers have checked-in their summer instructor or camp counselor will escort them to their assigned classroom/area, unless their assigned classroom/area is located near the Lower School Gym or on South Campus.

    At the end of each Summer Program the Summer Program Instructor will ensure that the campers registered to attend in our Hawk Ridge Camp or a different offering will get to their designated area or classroom. The Summer Program Instructors leading programs at or around the Lower School will escort the campers that are not registered to attend in another offering to the front of the Lower School Gym to be picked up. Summer Program Instructors that are leading programs at or around the Middle and Upper School will escort the campers that are not registered to attend in another offering to the front of the Upper School Gym to be picked up.

Please note that in the event a camper has not been picked up 10 minutes after their program concludes the Summer Program Instructor will escort them to Summer Camp Support Staff and fees will apply.
  • Pick-up/Carpool Procedures

    In order to ensure a prompt and safe loading process, we ask that parents remain in the car pool line. Each person picking up children is asked to display the name(s) (first and last) of the campers riding in the car. This sign should be large enough to be read from a distance, and it should be displayed on the side window of the vehicle until you exit campus. Also, we ask for understanding that our staff will be very busy during the loading process and will not be available for conversation until all campers have been loaded. Campers are never allowed to walk to the parking lot alone to meet a parent who is parked.
    As a courtesy to others, we attempt to move the traffic line as quickly as possible while being absolutely committed to safety. Below are some important procedures that we ask you to follow to help us be courteous, efficient, and safe:
    • Please remain in your vehicle.
    • Relocate to the parking lot if you need to pursue a personal conversation.
    • Always pull as forward as possible in the loading area before stopping to load.
    • If you need to enter the buildings for any reason, park in the parking lot and not the loading area.
    • In an effort to maintain a safe campus environment, we ask everyone to refrain from using cell phones for calls or text messaging unless parked in a parking space in one of our lots.
  • Waitlist

    Many of our Summer Programs fill quickly, so register early! Once a program is full, families may join the waitlist. Families will not be required to pay a deposit if they choose to join a program's waitlist. The Auxiliary Programs Office or the Director of Auxiliary Programs will contact you if a spot becomes available.
