Dock Details

Registration Details:

Register Online – Currently we do ask for a new registration each school year for each participating child. It does take up to one week for us to process registrations from our registration system to our database for nametag check ins.

All children are welcome at attend Dock regardless of pre-registration.
The Children’s Ministry Team simply needs to gather basic information (Quick Registration Form) for safety reasons before participant(s) go to classes that day.

  • Register for Dock prior to your child’s attendance.
  • Quick Registration Forms are available at the Dock Check-in stations, if you are unable to pre-register.
  • We use iPad check-in stations for children to check-in for Dock. Pre-registration is the only way to ensure your child can check-in through that system.

If you have questions or need assistance with registering please contact Lisa Heyer at 651.762.9175 or lheyer@saintandrews.org
