How to Register

Camp registration closes at noon on Friday two weeks prior to the date camp begins. Please follow the directions below to submit your registration.
Sign up for camps starting January 23 (January 17 for Members) at U of M Tickets. After completing your registration and payment, you will receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive this email, it is possible that you did not fully complete your registration. Call 612-624-2345 for assistance.

If you have questions about your account, need your password reset, or have difficulty placing your reservation, please call 612-624-2345 (Mon - Fri, 10AM to 5 PM) and we will be happy to assist you.
