Registration and Waitlist
Camp registration opens on WEDNESDAY MARCH 6th for all Killington Residents, KPAA Business Members, and Killington second home owners. If you are an employee of a KPAA Business member, but not a Killington resident, email firstname.lastname@example.org to have your account updated.
Camp registration for non-residents will open on MONDAY March 11th.
If a program fills, please sign your child up for the waitlist activity. Choose the dates and program you're interested in. If spots open up, we will reach out to see if you're interested in moving off the waitlist.
Be sure to secure your spot in camp early! All registrations after May 15th will be subject to a $35 late registration fee.
Payments and Deposits:
Full payment is due prior to the start date of the program your camper is registered for, unless you have made alternate arrangements with Emily Hudson, Recreation Director. Camp payment can either be paid in full upon registration, or via a 10% non-refundable deposit with the final balance being paid prior to the start of camp.
Is it the mission of Killington Parks and Recreation to provide affordable and accessible programing for all. Scholarships are available to make sure everyone has access to camp. For more information on scholarships, please email Emily Hudson (email@example.com).
We understand that plans change, and your camper(s) may not be able to attend the weeks they were initially registered for. We ask that you communicate these changes as far in advance as possible to allow time for families on the waitlist to make plans for camp.
Note: Campers can only be moved between weeks if there is space available in new session. Please confirm availability in the new week with Emily Hudson (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to cancelling the week you registered for.
- Full refunds will be issued if the recreation makes changes that prohibits the participants from attending.
- Full refund (minus non-refundable deposit) will be issued for any changes or cancellations made prior to 5pm the Wednesday before your camp session starts. This allows time for families on the wait list to move into the session.
- Partial refund (50%) will be issued for any changes or cancellations made within two business day prior to the start of your camp session.
Payment is non refundable for campers who do not show up or cancel after 4pm the Friday prior to their camp session.

Please be prepared to give your child's swim level during registration. Use the level descriptions below and make your best estimate based on your child's last experience in the water. Instructors will confirm swim levels during lessons, but having an approximate starting point is very helpful.
If a camper does not swim with ease, we require they wear a puddle jumper life jacket during free swim. We will supply swimmers with puddle jumpers, or parents may send a child with their own PFD.
Level I: Help first time swimmers feel comfortable in the water.
Level 2: Students learn how to float and start to develop fundamental skills. They should be comfortable in the water.
Level 3: Students learn to front crawl, backstroke, and tread water. Students should be able to swim length of pool comfortably.
Level 4: Students learn endurance swimming in elementary back stroke, breaststroke, sidestroke, and to turn at the wall.
Strong swimmers age 5 and above who can swim the length of the pool (25 yards) unassisted, might consider joining the Killington Sharks competitive swim team. Learn more at www.killingtonsharks.com.
