Message from Inspirations Camp Director Torsti Rovainen for 2019 camps
This year we explore both darkness and light in our musical The Sultan, the Secret, and the Witch (formerly titled The Boy Who Kept A Secret, and slightly revised from the 2015 version). I look forward to what your student brings to the camp and to the final performances this time around. Whether this is their second or sixth experience with us, it should be quite a ride!

The 2-Step enrollment Process
STEP 1: Check in with your child on their theatrical preferences (gender, and for older students, type of part sought for) for this coming year. Questions such as being asked to be considered for a lead role, or which gender a child prefers or is open to for casting should be figured out, either with that child or within the family, before you enroll. We ask this because once we have your child's information and the casting is set, it is very challenging to rearrange things should your child's wishes be different than what came in the enrollment form. When there is this type of discrepancy, in almost all cases we stick with the initial casting.
STEP 2: Fill out the enrollment form below, using the 'Additional Comments' section if there are any changes to your contact information.
**Medical form updates--if the information on your medical & pick-up authorization are the same as previous years, you needn't fill out a new form. If there is a small change, you can email that to us; if insurance policies, addresses or such have changed, please fill out a new form.
Once these two steps have happened, and assuming the tuition agreement is in place, your child will be officially enrolled in Inspirations Camps.
### bonus: — if you are a RETURNING FAMILy, and
— you welcome someone to enroll in one of our summer programs who has not done a summer program before,
— you GET $50 off your tuition and you can give that incoming a certificate for $50 off their tuition** (up to two families)
**limit two $50 certificates per returning family for up to $100 off for you.
How it works: if you’re the link in welcoming someone new to register, once you’ve enrolled, send us an email, letting us know their name; and once they’ve registered, we’ll send you and them the $50 certificates. It's a way of welcoming in new families while thanking our returning families for your continued patronage.
** if you have siblings enrolling (including ones doing a different camp):
— fill out this longer form for one child
— click on the link to ‘sibling enrollment’ at the bottom of the form (-after- you have pressed the black submit button for the first form)
— fill out the shorter form for the sibling(s).
the links to the medical forms and payment are at the bottom of either form.

If you have any questions about enrollment or the form below, please contact us at 503 - 895 - 4705 or firstname.lastname@example.org
(To our families enrolling multiple children, please bear with us with by filling out this form multiple times. We experimented with a few other models but they were either not space-efficient or involved a hornet's nest of sub-auxiliary clicks and bubble window pop-up pages; when it was all said and done, it seemed like it would actually take less time just to fill this out 2+ times than to go through all that)
** When filling out this form press 'Tab' or click on the next box to proceed; hitting 'return' will cause the form to submit prematurely.
** Before proceeding, leaving this page, or clicking any of the buttons below, make sure you pressed the black 'submit' button above. If successful, the form will have disappeared and a small confirmation message taken its place **
(If the questions & white spaces have disappeared, your form has been successfully completed; if you still see the form above, some part is either incomplete or needs attention. Scroll up, fill out the areas (now highlighted in red), then press the black 'submit' button to complete the process)

Here is a link to the medical forms / photo release / pick-up authorization if you need to fill these out with new updated information
NOTE: IF THERE IS NO NEW INFORMATION FROM THE FORM YOU FILLED OUT FOR CAMP BEFORE, YOU NEED NOT FILL OUT A NEW MEDICAL FORM.
If you are filling out a new medical form, you can bring it with you on the first day of camp. We can not have children at camp who do not have a medical form on file.

PLEASE DO NOT CLICK ON THIS BUTTON IF YOU ARE STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF FILLING OUT YOUR RE-ENROLLMENT ABOVE--you will lose everything that you've filled out. Only once you've seen the message "Enrollment has been received" at the bottom of the space the enrollment questions was (white text on black) you are safe to go.
