You do not have to send in a paper application when you apply.
If you are approved and selected to attend an activity (see Understanding the Slotting Process) the director will contact you with specific instructions on your signed application.
Sign the “Release Agreement” and have your parent or guardian (if applicable) sign the “Release by Parent or Guardian” block (page 4 of the application).
Mail the signed “Release Agreement/Release by Parent or Guardian” to the activity director.
DO NOT SEND YOUR RELEASE TO NHQ.
If you are slotted to attend more than one activity, you will need to send a copy of the release to each activity.
The same process is also true if you are applying for a staff position.
