High Sierra Camps Lottery

Postby Firedancer » Sun Mar 13, 2016 1:36 pm

Hi all - I've submitted my application for the High Sierra Camps in late August. There's not much info on the website about the process, so I'm hoping someone here can give me more info. I'm leaving for Asia in two weeks and am afraid I will miss the email or payment window while I'm gone!

* When is the lottery processed, and when are notifications sent out?
* How soon after notification is payment due? (I think it's full payment due, not just a deposit?)
* Can you pay by credit card?

Thanks in advance! I feel like my whole summer is on hold pending this lottery. (First world problems, I know!)

Completed it 4 times, and we were always notified by late January, however with the changeover in host companies things might be a little dicey this year.
I believe we had 15 days to make full payment, and yes you can pay by credit card.

Thanks, Grzldvt - yeah, I'm sure changing companies will delay things a bit. Hopefully I'll hear before I leave for Asia otherwise I'll be checking my email from vacation, which I don't want to do! :? At least I can do a cc over the internet, I was worried I might have to mail a check or money order.

Thanks again!
