Should Summer Camp Sign Up Require a 4 a.m. Wakeup?

Should Summer Camp Sign Up Require a 4 a.m. Wakeup?

This morning my husband's alarm began blasting NPR's Oscar wrap up at 4:00. No, he wasn't heading to the airport or an important business meeting.  He woke up to sign our 3 and 6 year old children up for Summer Camp at the YMCA.

Of course I am beyond grateful for his willingness to be there early, but it wasn't like he went there signed up and came home to go back to sleep.  He was waiting in line until 9:00.  Someone has to figure out an easier way to handle camp registration, I even filled out pages of forms in advance.

We are in a world where we can buy movie tickets from our phone, can't we get our kids into camp electronically?

I'm sure come June I will be thrilled my kids are occupied and happy.  Would you get up before sunrise to sign your little one up for day camp?
