Incomplete enrollment packets will NOT be accepted.

Deposits and Cancellation Policy

A $100 deposit is required at the time of registration for every confirmed two-week session. The deposit will hold a camp reservation until the final payment is due for each session. Full payment must be received by the payment deadline to hold the camper’s place (see front cover for dates). If full payment is not received by this time, your reservation(s) will be cancelled. All requests to cancel a camper from a session MUST be submitted in writing to the office prior to the session starting. The following criteria are used to determine the amount of money refunded to the parent if a cancellation is requested. It is the parents responsibility to follow-up in writing with the camp office on any cancellation. Deposits are non-transferable to other sessions and are non-refundable.

-Six weeks or more prior to the enrolled camp session: only the nonrefundable $100 deposit is retained.
-Between six weeks and eight days prior to the enrolled camp session: a $100 cancellation fee is charged and the non-refundable $100 deposit is retained.
-No refund will be given to a cancellation request made seven or less days before the camp session begins.

Camp staff reserves the right to cancel any session or modify activities or groups due to enrollment, facility problems, staffing concerns or circumstances beyond its control (i.e. rain, pool problems or electrical outages).
