Some Common Questions

I want to register my child for a program that does not require my participation. What should I do? Include the child's name and age in the spaces provided. If provided, check the box asking if you are planning to attend or not.

How to Register More than One Person for an Event?

For programs that are "per family" your one registration can include all the adults and children you plan to bring to the program. Include all children and their ages in the box provided on the registration field.

How to Register Online For Programs that have a "Per Person" Fee?
This includes summer camps, Junior Rangers, and some special events. Some events do not allow "guest registrations" but require each participant to register separately. You can register multiple attendees under your account. To do so, before paying, return to the event registration page after confirming each registration.

I'm a Member, can I register a Nonmember for a Program? We ask that Members do not use their membership account to register nonmembers. You will have to log off the web site, and enter a new registration for the Nonmember (which will require their email address)
