How to Register
First, please download the required forms for all MSU Youth Programs:
You will need to have these ready to upload along with your registration form. If you prefer not to send electronically, you may mail them to:
Play Math Summer Camps Attention: Ashley Ahlin Wells Hall 619 Red Cedar Rd. Rm C212 East Lansing, MI 48824
Next, complete the registration form. This form should save your work as you go, for up to one week, in case you need to return later to complete registration. Once this is completed, you will be redirected to CashNet, the online payment system. Please have your payment information ready while submitting the registration. The registration cost is $120 through April 30. Beginning on May 1, registration increases to $140.
If for some reason you are not redirected or cannot access CashNet at the time of registration, you can use direct links to:
- pay $100 for Math Explorers, before May 1
- pay $120 for five day camps, before May 1, or Math Explorers, beginning May 1.
- pay $140 for five day camps, beginning May 1.
We will associate your payment with registration based on names used for payment. If you pay with a credit card with a name which is different from the name in your registration, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let us know. If we are not able to identify your payment, we will contact you. You will receive a confirmation email from Cashnet.
If you are waiting to hear about a need-based scholarship and have indicated so on your registration, you do not need to submit the CashNet payment and may simply close the window.
If you are registering more than one child for camps, or if you are registering a child for multiple camps, you must fill out and complete separate registration forms and CashNet payments. In other words, for each spot in each camp that is filled, a unique registration form and CashNet payment is needed.
If you wish to put your student on a wait list for a camp that is full, you may submit a registration for it. However, it is crucial that you do not pay anything until we have confirmed that there is a spot in the camp for them. You may leave the browser after being redirected.
For students who cancel their registration prior to two weeks before the start of camp, we will offer a refund of fees paid, minus a $20 non-refundable deposit.
For cancellations within two weeks of the first day of camp, we will offer a refund of 1/2 of the camp fees.
For cancellations after camp has begun, we will not be able to offer any refund.
We reserve the right to cancel any camp due to insufficient enrollment. Students who have registered for a camp which is cancelled will be offered a full refund or the opportunity to enroll in an alternate course. In our four year history of summer camps, only one camp has been cancelled due to insufficient enrollment.
