How Do I Configure Camp Registration Settings? (Other Settings)

IN THIS ARTICLE:

Learn how to configure your Camp Registration settings. Changes in this area will impact all of the camps which are shown online and allow registration. Other specific settings for billing and signup methods can be found by editing the camp itself.

Camp Registration options include:

  • Count Camp Requests Against Openings – this setting will count any requests which are submitted for Active enrollments against the number of openings in the camp to preserve the “first come, first serve” method of registration. Once the requests are processed (approved or denied) from online activity, any remaining spots will open back up for new registrations/requests. If your business uses the auto-approve mode for registration, requests would be from customers that do not meet the established camp requirements.
  • Allow Visitors to Request a Camp That is Full – this option enables the Customer Portal to accept Wait List requests. The request must be approved by a staff member through Online Activity. (NOTE: The system will override this setting if multiple enrollments from the same family are submitted for the same opening. In this scenario, one enrollment will be approved and the others will be submitted as WAIT requests.)
  • Allow Visitors to Request a Camp for a Student that Does Not Meet Camp Requirements – this will permit students which do not meet the Age, Gender or Grade requirements of a camp to submit a request to enroll anyway, which must be approved through Online Activity.
  • Allow Visitors to Modify Camp Schedule – when enabled, this option allows customers to go back into existing enrollments where they were able to choose the dates to enroll and modify those dates (as long as they have not already passed). For billing, this option uses the “Require Payment when Modifying Camp” setting and the subsequent method chosen under “When Charging for Modified Schedules” to determine what the charges should be.
    • When Charging for Modified Schedules – Used when the above option is selected. Choosing “Charge the Difference” will bill an amount based on the difference in pricing between the billable amount for the previous number of camp blocks and the current number of camp blocks the student is enrolled for (based on the pricing schedule). Choosing “Charge the Remainder Owed” will bill an amount based on the difference between the amount already billed to the customer (regardless of the number of previously enrolled blocks) and the new price for the number of blocks selected in the pricing schedule.
      • NOTE: The behavior of how Promo Codes/Special Discounts are applied towards camp enrollment modifications depends on how the "When Charging for Modifying Camp Enrollment Schedules" setting is configured under SETTINGS>CUSTOMER PORTAL>OTHER SETTINGS>CAMP REGISTRATION:
        • "Charge the Difference" - Apply discount to modifications only (regardless of whether it was applied to the original charge or not.)
        • "Charge the Remainder Owed" - Apply discount to complete charge (regardless of whether it was applied to the original charge or not)
        • If applying the discount would result in a negative value, we should cap the total cost for the modification at $0.00.
      • NOTE: the system will determine whether it should charge for auto-approved camp enrollment modifications based on whether "Force Pay in Full" is enabled as the “Amount Due at Signup” in the Camp Details.
    • Charge Nothing if Deposit Due Only is Set on the Camp When Modifying the Schedule – this should be checked if you do not want the customer to have to pay the full camp price after initial signup when adjusting their schedule; specifically, if a deposit is all that the Customer Portal is set to bill for a new enrollment in that camp.
  • Anniversary Fee - when enabled, this option will bill an additional flat fee to customers either per student or per family if their ledger does not contain an Anniversary line item charge within the number of months specified under SETTINGS>SETUP>GENERAL SETTINGS>ANNIVERSARY CHARGES. This option will utilize the same Charge Category defined under SETTINGS>CUSTOMER PORTAL>OTHER SETTINGS>CLASS REGISTRATION along with the associated Anniversary Charges Program. For more information about how this fee works, visit our Anniversary Charges article.
  • Auto-Approve Charge Category – Select the charge category you would like associated with new fees incurred for camp registration online.
  • Set Due Date For Auto-Created Charges To Start Date of Camp - when enabled, this sets the due date for all camp tuition charges created to be the start date of camp.
    • Auto-Created Charges Set the Due Date to "X" Days in the Future" - allows you to enter the number of days between the charge being incurred at checkout and the date that it’s due. This feature is primarily used by customers that do not require immediate payment of tuition.
      • NOTE: this field is hidden if "Set Due Date For Auto-Created Charges To Start Date of Camp" is enabled.
  • Send Email Notification Upon Auto-enrollment to Email Address of Camp Location - when enabled, sends an email notification to the email on file under SETTINGS>LOCATIONS when a customer completes checkout for an enrollment.
  • Restrict Enrollment Start Date Based on Camp Start Time - If enabled, you will be able to choose between two options and specify the number of minutes: "Allow Enrollments Up To A Maximum Of 'X' Minutes BEFORE Camp Start Time" OR "Allow Enrollments Up To A Maximum Of 'X' Minutes AFTER Camp Start Time." (You can only enable one of these settings at a time.)
    • If the enrollment creation time falls WITHIN the window defined by one of these settings, the enrollment will be allowed for the current date.
    • If the enrollment creation time falls AFTER the window defined by one of these settings, the enrollment start date is pushed forward depending on how other settings are configured:
      • If the option to "Allow Parents to Choose Days" is enabled on the "Customer Portal" tab for the camp, the current date will not be shown as an option, and the camp blocks displayed will begin with the next available camp date.
      • If the option to "Allow Parents to Choose Days" is NOT enabled on the "Customer Portal" tab for the camp, the enrollment start date will automatically be pushed forward to the next available camp date.

After making any changes to these settings, click “Save Settings”.
