Summer Programs SIGN UPS AND PERMISSION FORMS
LWGMS Summer Programs are open to all L-Dub students (and in some cases alumnae and incoming students), and each program has a maximum number of students it can safely accommodate. Our sign up system is designed to be smooth, to increase communication with families, and to maximize trip participation.
Program sign ups have two steps. You are not signed up for an outing until both steps are complete.
Step 1: Sign Up Online
It is our preference that programs are paid for in full.
DEPOSIT: To secure your spot, please make a deposit of 50% with the code “1819OUTDOORS” (for Outdoor Programs) or “1819CAMP” for Summer Camps.
Current Families: To pay the remaining due, you must log in to FACTS to make a second payment before due April 1st. If you are registering after April 1st, you must pay in full.
Friends of LWGMS: We will contact you with payment plan options once we receive your registration.
Financial Aid for Current Families: If your family qualifies for financial aid for the 1819 school year, please use your financial aid code when applying for this experience. You must pay in full at this time.
Financial Aid for Friends of LWGMS: Please contact our Business Office to inquire about financial assistance.
Waitlist: If the program/s you are interested in are “sold out,” please email Ms. Christine to get on a waitlist.
Step 2: Turn In Permission Form
Parents/guardians will receive email confirmation of program registration that will included a permission form. This form must be turned in in order to secure a student’s placement in programs. One form per student.
Turning in a permission form signifies that students and families have checked their calendars and have confirmed that the student can indeed participate in the program. It also signifies that all parties understand that a trip cancellation fee will be applied to the family if the student cancels after May 1.
TRIP PARTICIPANT SELECTION PROCESS
Trips are filled on a first come, first serve basis.
Important Note: You can continue to sign up for programs with space up to two weeks before its start date.
Students are at times selected from a waitlist. If you are interested in a program that is “sold out,” please contact Ms. Christine.
GEAR FOR LEND
The LWGMS Outdoor Program maintains a collection of clean and quality gear available to students to borrow through the gear check out system. Please do not let not owning gear keep you from going on an outing. Talk to Ms. Christine about they gear you need and we will try to supply you with the necessary equipment. Borrowed gear should be returned promptly. Students may be charged for lost, broken, or non returned gear.
ELECTRONICS AND CELL PHONES
Use of smart phones and other electronics is not permitted during LWGMS Summer Programs without permission from the program leaders. As a standing rule, students may not text, make or receive calls during any programs. If communication with home or elsewhere is necessary, check with your program leader first.
