Why is there a waitlist?
In order to maintain TAF’s high standards of safety and quality, a cap is set for the Juniors (completed grades 1-5) and Junior High (completed grades 6-8) programs to ensure ideal camper-to-counselor ratios and to provide the best experience possible for all at TAF.
Is there a waitlist for campers in the Youth programs?
No. The waitlist is currently for those in the Juniors and Junior High program only.
How does the waitlist work?
TAF will notify parents on a rolling basis as spots become available, prioritizing campers who had registered the earliest. If the parent confirms that their child is able to attend, TAF will then charge the credit card. All campers who are still on the waitlist on 7/15/18 will be notified of the final decisions.
Should I register my child for the Juniors/Junior High program after the programs are full?
Yes, TAF recommends registering your child as soon as possible. Not only does this give you higher priority as spots become available, registering early also secures a seat on the bus if you’re are interested in having your child take the bus from Chicago or Detroit/Ann Arbor.
Should I register for a bus?
Yes, waitlisted campers should register for a bus so that a seat is secured if they are able to attend TAF.
Will I be charged if I’m on the waitlist?
Campers on the waitlist will not be charged until a spot opens up and the parents confirm that their child can attend.
What if I have a child in Juniors/Junior High and a child in Youth?
Children in Youth programs currently do not have a waitlist. You may register for multiple programs and will only need to pay for the camper(s) in the Youth program. You will not be charged for the Junior/Junior High camper on the waitlist until it is confirmed that they are able to attend.
If you decide to cancel your registration for all campers, please email us at TAFmarketing@tafworld.org in by 11:59pm CST on 7/15/18 in order to receive a full refund.
Email TAFMarketing@tafworld.org if you have additional questions.
