Summer Camp Registration Procedures

Summer Camp Registration Procedures

Online Registration

The fastest and easiest way to register is online!

This section provides directions on how to complete the online registration.

Read and decide which camp(s) you will register your child(ren) for.

If you are registering more than one child, you will need to register them individually, in separate transactions.

  • Click on the REGISTER tab located on each individual camp’s description page.
  • You will be directed to Penn State’s Non-Credit Course Registration System.
  • Click to add the camp to your SHOPPING CART.
  • To add additional camps – click on the KEEP SHOPPING tab at the bottom of the shopping cart.
  • You will be directed to a listing of all Penn State non-credit courses being offered.
  • To limit your search, you can select Abington as the program area and scroll through the programs, or you can type the name of the camp in the Keyword/Title box.
  • When you are ready, continue to checkout. You will be asked to input an email address.  Please add the email address that you would like the receipt, confirmation and other camp related correspondence to go to.

When registering online, if you are registering someone other than yourself (i.e. a parent registering a child) you will be acting as that person during the registration process and inputting their information, not your own.

  • You will be asked to complete a series of information fields and questions.  Please be prepared to complete the following fields:
    • Emergency Contact Information (name, phone number, relationship to camper)

Submit payment via credit card. You will receive a confirmation email from the Non-Credit Registration System. When registering online, payment is expected in full.

Please expect an email from the camp director within a week of registration.

In addition to the information gathered online, Penn State requires that parents and guardians complete additional information related to emergency contact information, pick up and drop off information, and Youth Program Health Services Medical Treatment Authorization form. This form will be emailed to the parent/guardian following the online registration process.

Forms can be emailed to or faxed to 215-881-7412.


If you have difficulty with the online registration process, please contact the Office for Outreach Non-credit Registration at 814-867-4973.

If you have any questions about the camps, please contact the Office of Continuing Education at 215-881-7339 - email
