Extracurricular Programs

 

Kingsley has many educational and enriching extracurricular activities to chose from this year. The school year is kicking off, but there’s still time to register for Fall courses. See the instructions for how to do so, below. (Email nclifford@kingsley.org with any questions.)

Registration for Extracurricular Programs:

For parents who already have a profile (if your children were enrolled in Kingsley’s Summer Program, for example), you will want to go to https://kingsley.campmanagement.com/campers. Log into the parent dashboard and select the ‘Enrollment’ link to choose their classes.

For parents who have not created a profile yet, please click 
https://kingsley.campmanagement.com/enroll, then complete the new family enrollment form and corresponding enrollment process.

Please fill out the basic information and then you will be able to browse the offerings appropriate for your child’s age. To make the registration process easier for you, the offerings will be displayed by day of the week, so you can select Monday and see all the offerings for Monday etc. Once you select the program for your child you will receive a confirmation email. There is a limited capacity for all offerings, therefore, when the class is full it will no longer appear on the website.

The first week of enrichment classes is 9/18-9/22. This is also the deadline for families to add or drop courses. After this add/drop week, families will be billed through Smart Tuition for their selected After School offerings.
