Registration for Wildlife Camps is now online only! You must have an online account with us to register. If you do not have an account, we recommend setting up an account PRIOR to registration opening.  Here's what you need to know:

  • If you are a staff, faculty, or student, you already have an account - just use your Hawk ID and password. 
  • If you've already created an account as a member of Rec Services or for other programs (swim lessons, fitness classes, etc), you are all ready to go when registration opens!
  • If you do not have an account, you can either create an account here or call 319-335-9293 or stop by the CRWC or Field House membership desk to set up an account. Important: Once your account is set up, you'll need to add your child as a "dependent" on your account.
