Please read through these enrollment steps before you apply so you understand our process!
Step 1: Apply
If your child already has a Curacubby account (if they attended last summer or this past school year) you can use this link:
If you are new to Growing Wild Forest School, or you’re enrolling a sibling of a current or past student, you can use this link:
Please note that all new students will need to pay our one time $35 application fee. Once your child is in the system, you will not have to pay this again for any of our programs.
**Families who are new to Growing Wild are strongly encouraged to attend an Open House with their child prior to attending Summer Camp.

If a desired week is already full you will be permitted to select that week in the waitlist section.
Step 2: Deposits
After your application has been accepted, we will confirm your schedule in an email and we will invoice you a $100 non-refundable deposit for each week enrolled to hold your child's space. The deposit will be applied to your tuition for each week enrolled. Your space is not guaranteed until this deposit is received! Thank you for your patience as we will be processing applications as they come in, manually.
In the case that Summer Camp must be canceled due to COVID-19, all deposits will be returned.
Step 3: Forms and Invoices
At the end of April, we will send all families an email directing them to their forms and tuition invoices in Curacubby. Tuition may be paid between that date and one month before the start of camp. All forms must also be completed within that time period.
Because our space is limited and the demand is high, your tuition must be paid in full one month before the start of camp or your spot may be given to someone on the waitlist. Please note the due date on your invoices for your weekly tuition. Again, deposits are non-refundable, so be sure you have paid your tuition in time to keep your spot!
