How do I sign up for Summer Stock 2020?

Join the wait list by filling out the Summer Stock Theater Camp Sign Up Form. All campers need to join the wait list before being enrolled.

Do I have to Sign Up? Even if I previously registered?

Yes. Everyone must fill out the Summer Stock Theater Camp Sign Up Form to join. Prior registration with Kid Stock does not guarantee you a spot. Everyone must join the list.

Why does everyone need to join the list if there are spots available?

Kid Stock is meeting legal requirements to prioritize enrollment for essential workers and those with the highest need. When you join the list, you will need to provide info that helps Kid Stock assess your enrollment status.

Can I sign up for multiple sessions?

Due to city regulations and policies, campers are unable to attend back-to-back sessions to prevent further spread to other populations.

How will Kid Stock determine who gets priority enrollment status?

Kid Stock will offer priority enrollment to children of essential workers and/or who have the highest need for services. Based on the the Summer camp directive the City of San Francisco requires all summer camps and programs to meet these standards. For more info from the city health officer’s director as well as examples of essential businesses, you can read the Health Officer’s directive here. See section 15.f for definition of essential businesses.

If I get a spot, how do I enroll?

Kid Stock will alert you by email if you have been invited to enroll. If you have registered for a Kid Stock program in the past six months, we have your info on file and will be able to complete registration for you! If this is your first time signing up with Kid Stock, we may request additional info so that our admin team can complete your registration.

When will I know if I’m enrolled?

We will make enrollment announcements on Monday June 8th by 4pm. After our sign up period closes, we will filter priority groups. Decisions will be made on a first-come, first-served basis with priority given to those families in priority groups. If spots remain available after June 8th, our sign up will re-open until all spots have been filled.

What are the pre-camp paperwork requirements?

All parents/guardians will be asked to review and sign Kid Stock’s health and safety plan/acknowledgement of risk, and complete a COVID-19 pre-screening survey. A daily two-minute online screening survey must be completed 1 hour prior to the start of camp each day.

I was supposed to receive Financial Aid this summer. Does it apply to this new form of Camp?

Yes, though the specific amount may change depending on the session you choose. If you received a half scholarship for a 2020 camp, you still have a half scholarship!

Can I still apply for financial aid?

Kid Stock is not offering new financial aid awards at this time.

How do I pay for Camp?

If you have already paid for a summer program and did NOT request a refund, funds paid will be applied to your Camp registration.

If you no longer have a credit with us, your card on file will be charged based on the payment plan you select through the Summer Stock 2020 Wait List Form.  If you do not wish for us to use your card on file, you can specify that on the Wait List Form or email us anytime.

If I owe tuition for camp. When will my card be charged?

Cards will be charged based on the payment plan you select. You may choose to pay in full one week before camp begins or choose to pay in installments. If you choose to pay in installments, your card will be charged on the first of each month.

Why is the cost of camp different from when I originally signed up?

We have been able to cut costs internally so as not to raise the full price of camp for our families and still provide financial aid for families who have already received awards. However, In order to break even with lower enrollment due to capacity limitations, additional staff costs, training costs, health/safety protocols implementation, cleaning/sanitation supplies, all summer 2020 programs will be charged at full price. No discounts are available at this time. Payment plans are available.
