Back in the day, registration for Parks & Recreation spring and summer programs — including Camp Compo — meant driving down to Longshore, standing in line in a grungy office, going back home for whatever documents you forgot, then doing it all over again.
Eventually the offices were renovated. Mail-in registration was added. But folks still forgot stuff.
Now the process is all online. You know immediately what you’ve forgotten.
So mark your calendars. Online registration begins Wednesday, March 14 at 9 a.m. NOTE: Many programs fill quickly.
A login and password are necessary. Parks & Rec advises taking care of that now, if you don’t have one. Click here to create an account. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org before March 9.
If you still like the old ways — walk-in, mail or fax (!) — it begins Monday, March 19.
That’s the same day (March 19) that beach stickers — or “emblems,” as Parks & Rec calls them — go on sale online (and in person).
Usually that’s a ho-hum affair. But with fewer stickers on sale to non-residents — 350, down from 600 last summer — out-of-towners should mark the date on their calendars.
Otherwise, you might get left out in the cold.
And Parks & Rec employees who work in that office don’t want to feel your heat.
