SEEDS programs fill fast.  For the best chance at a spot in a camp, return your registration form and tuition by the deadline.  Registrations will be selected from all those received by the deadline.  Any remaining spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  You will be notified by email within four days of lottery results.  If you don’t get one of the spots in a SEEDS program, there are many other excellent programs offered by the Mayapple School, Town of Blacksburg Parks and Recreation,  Montgomery County Parks and Recreation, and others.
