Eno Discovery Summer Camp Registration, Durham NC

Yes it is that time of year when you gotta start planning your children's summer activities. 

Registration for Eno Discovery Summer Camp start on March 16.  You can either register online at https://online.activenetwork.com/dprplaymore/Start/Start.asp  or you can register at West Point on March 16, between 9am - 1pm. 
The best plan would be to register online if you can, go to the site now and search it so you can find all the camps that you are interested in.  First you will click browse, then click the Camp link on the left, once there you will have to scroll through to find the Eno Discovery camp sessions.  If you take note of the barcode of the camp weeks you are interested in, when you go to register on Saturday, March 16 you will be able to go right to the camps instead of having to scroll around.
If you have not registered online before, go ahead and set yourself up with a log-in, it will take 24-48 hours to complete the process.  So you want to take care of that by Wednesday, March 13 to make sure you have time.

Below are the basics about the camp, one thing to know is the fee is $132 for city residents and $157 for non-city.  The other fees reflect the discount you get if you have a Playmore Card.  A Playmore card cost $25 per family (city residents) and you receive discounts on all DPR programs.  You cannot by a Playmore Card online.  You must purchase the card at a recreation center or the main parks and recreation office.
