Eligibility for registration

In order to process your registration, you must have proof of affiliation to UC San Diego (bring your official UC San Diego ID card) or you must have had a camper attend one session of Spring/Summer 2016. We will check our records.

Registration Information

Returning families who have attended Knock Around Camp for 6+ years will be given priority registration. You do not need to attend registration on March 4th. You will receive specific registration instructions via email by February 6th. Returning families who have attended 5 years or fewer and new affiliates will register in person on Saturday, March 4th. We will be doing a lottery in advance of registration day and sending out each family’s order # ahead of time. Please read through our detailed registration instructions and information below.

Registration Instructions

Saturday, March 4th registration is only open to those who have already received a lottery number. If you are a new affiliate or 2016 returner and did NOT receive a number, we suggest going to RIMAC Sales the week following registration (anytime on or after Monday, March 6th) to register in person. RIMAC Sales is open Monday-Saturday, 8am-6pm. You can follow our Twitter feed @UCSDKnockAround for updates on what camps have filled and which still have availability. If a camp you are interested in is full, please email Brick at bbrickley@ucsd.edu to be added to the wait list.

Each family will receive one ticket for each year they have attended Knock Around Camp, plus one additional. (i.e. the Shaw-Bullock family has attended camp for five summers, so they will have six tickets in the lottery; the Brickleys attended last summer for the first time, so they will have two tickets in the lottery). Returning families and affiliates from Spring/Summer 2016 will be entered into the lottery based on the amount of years they have attended camp. If you are a new affiliate and have yet to attend camp, you will be entered into the lottery one time. Once we have held the lottery, you will receive a set order number for the March 4th registration day. We are planning to do the lottery on Thursday, February 23rd and will send out the order by Friday, February 24th. If you know of a 2016 returner and/or new UCSD affiliate that is not on our email list, please let them know to email me so they can be added to the lottery. Additionally, if you are receiving this email and will not be present on Saturday, March 4th, please let me know so I can remove you from the lottery. Anyone not a part of this list that contacts me after February 23rd will automatically be added to the end of the lottery list.

Refund policy

Refund requests must be made no later than two weeks prior to the first day of your session. There are NO REFUNDS once your session has started. To make a refund request, please email: kshawbullock@ucsd.edu Refunds will be charged $40 per child for each session, which will be deducted from your registration fee.

  2. Only one lottery number per family
