Important Registration Information: A camper is considered preliminarily registered once the Cobb School Montessori, Inc. receives the initial registration information, and deposit.  A camper’s final acceptance, enrollment, and participation in a camp session is contingent on your full and timely payment of the remaining balance, the completion of the Enrollment Agreement, and all other required documents and waivers, Cobb Adventure Program’s review of your submitted registration, including all required (completed and/or signed) forms and information.

The Cobb Adventure Program welcomes all camper applicants to its programs and is able to accommodate camper participation in a variety of circumstances. However, our remote wilderness locations, high adventure activities, and delayed access to front-country medical care may, in some cases, result in CAP declining admission or ongoing participation because of medical or health concerns.
