Participant Attendance

Attendance is a key component to the success, development, and progression of the First Tee program. As part of our Summer week long camp series, participants are expected to attend all program dates. We ask that while reviewing our schedule, you choose to register for a program that your kiddo can commit to for the full week. Program space is limited and out of respect and courtesy for fellow participants, volunteers, and organizers, it is important to commit to the schedule.
