Registration Notes

Initially when registration opens for Dog Sledding we only take requests for placement in the program. Demand for this program is quite high and we want to ensure the oldest youth have the best chance of getting a spot. We collect the requests from the first day of registration and sort them into weekends. When registering please be ready to provide alternate weekends that will work for your group. More flexible groups will have a better chance of a spot in the Dog Sledding program. After the initial placements we send out confirmation emails and any remaining spots open up as first come first served.
