Early Registration

Regular online registration is on a first-come first-serve basis and gets filled up very quickly. An early registration token permits you to register before regular registration. This guarantees registration in the camp of your choice.

The following groups will be eligible for early camp registration. Token will be allocated based on the following priority and approval by the VYC team.

  • Vraj Camp Adult Volunteer : 7 or more full days volunteering in camp in a year.
  • North Campus Supporters : Donation of $500 or more targeted for new building.
  • Vraj Mandir Sevak : 8 or more full days volunteering in mandir events in a year.

This is a three-step process.

  • Request for Token: Saturday March 3, 2018 @ 10:00 AM – Saturday March 10, 2018 @ 5:00 PM
  • Approval and Receipt of Early Token by email: By Thursday March 29, 2018
  • Using the token, Camper Registration must be completed during Early Registration: Saturday March 31, 2018 @ 10:00 AM – Thursday April 12, 2018 @ 8:00 PM. Token cannot be used after this window.
  • To register your own child, please visit “Camp Registration” page here. Regular camp fees and guidelines will be applicable for the registration.
  • Documentation Deadline for early camper registration is Thursday April 12, 2018.

Vraj Camp Volunteer:

After a parent registers to volunteer for a camp and is approved as a volunteer, the parent will be allowed to early-register own child. A token will be provided if your children’s name is filled on the volunteer form. The parent will receive a token and early camper registration instruction by email. Only one child per parent Volunteer will be allowed to register early. If the parent cannot volunteer at the camp for any reason and cancels his/her registration; the child’s registration will automatically be cancelled.

Volunteer approval/acceptance in camp will depend on the need, availability, and flexibility of a volunteer to take on any assignments as requested. Attending camp volunteer workshop at Vraj on Friday April 27th, 2018 is MANDATORY.

Contact our Volunteer Coordinators at VolunteerReg@vrajyouth.org for more information.
