How to Register for NBTSC
As of July 24, registration for 2022 is closed so we can finish getting ready for camp.
If you missed the opportunity to register, we hope to see you in 2023!
We expect registration to open in February or March.
New to NBTSC?
1) Make sure you and your parents read everything listed here.
- essential NBTSC information
- refund policy
- COVID-19 page
- the fine print
- the page pertaining to your session (Oregon or Vermont)
2) Click here to create a new account and begin the registration process. Welcome to the NBTSC family!
Please also read the important notes regarding registration at the bottom of this page.
Already been to NBTSC?
1) Please review the fine print. Most of this will be already familiar, but we need you and your parents to look it over.
2) Please read our 2022 COVID-19 page. Everyone who participates in NBTSC this year must be flexible and willing to adapt to what is needed.
3) There are a few changes to this year’s refund policy. Please have a look.
4) We suggest that you have a quick look at our whole website. Each year we make changes to our written materials, and even though most of it is not new, it always helps if campers and their families re-familiarize themselves with NBTSC culture. Each year, different aspects of camp become more or less important as you yourself grow and change.
5) Click here to sign into your account and register. Yay! Welcome back!
Please also read the important notes regarding registration, below.
notes and reminders regarding registration
Current email addresses for account users are crucial.
You must provide accurate email addresses for authorized account “users”—for at least one parent or guardian as well as for the camper—which will be valid through at least the end of your camp session. (If your email changes, you must log into your account and update your “user” info.) This is how we will confirm your registration, remind you of deadlines, and provide very important updates. It is your responsibility to read the notifications we send, and to make sure that your email spam controls are set up to allow our notifications into your inbox. You will definitely receive important email from us through CampDoc (the organization that processes registrations for us), and possibly also from individuals on our staff admin team.
What happens after you submit your preliminary registration?
Please go right into your “health and pre-camp info” section and then respond to all the questions in the “NBTSC camper prescreening questions” tab. (Important: we don’t mean the new health “Prescreening” section which won’t be activated until July. Just ignore that section for now.) As soon as possible we’ll look over the information you’ve submitted and either confirm your registration or reach out with further questions. Once your registration is confirmed, you’ll receive access to our detail-packed camper handbook (what to bring, how to prepare for camp, etc.), etc. —and you will be prompted for additional information (health history, what workshop you want to teach, dietary restrictions, etc.).
Download and read your Camper and Parent Handbook.
It’s accessible via the “Health and Pre-Camp Info” section of your account. The handbook is packed with key details for preparing for NBTSC.
Signing up as a host family
A “yes” indicates that your family is willing to have, as a houseguest, pretty much anyone from any session of camp—not just your personal friends. (Only during times that are convenient for you, of course.) Many campers travel to visit others, and this can be a great opportunity for both hosts and travelers.
Online travel directory
If you say yes to this one, we make your name, phone number, email address, and street address available on our password-protected directory so that other campers can connect with you to discuss the possibility of shared travel.
Some sessions fill up rapidly. If you find yourself on the wait list, you should know that most waitlisters have eventually been offered a spot in the session of their choice. In this regard, keeping a flexible summer schedule usually pays off. (But of course, we can’t guarantee you’ll get in.)
