Tuition Payment and Cancellation Policy (Effective August 1, 2015)
At the time of enrollment, for each one-, two, or three-week session enrolled, there is a $750 tuition deposit due, $100 of which is non-refundable. Thus, in the example of a camper enrolling for four weeks, a $1,500 tuition deposit is collected at the time of enrollment, $200 of which is non-refundable.
After the initial deposit, the options for payment of the remainder of the tuition are: 1) Payment of the entire tuition at the time of enrollment, or 2) Payment of the tuition balance in three equal installments on February 1, March 15, and May 1. All payments may be made by either credit card or e-check. Installment payments will be processed using the payment option (credit card or e-check) on file automatically on each installment date as a condition of enrollment. If enrollment occurs after one or more of the installment dates, the amount of the corresponding installment(s) will be due at the time of enrollment.
Late Arrival/Early Departure from Camp
When enrolling your child in a session at camp, please make sure your child is able to stay for the entire session (start date through end date). Because it is disruptive to camp and the other campers in the group, late arrivals and early departures from camp are highly discouraged. If our session dates do not work for your family, please find a different session or postpone your child’s stay at camp until he/she can attend a complete session. Unless there is a medical or family emergency that arises during the camp session, early departure from camp will result in your family not being eligible for priority enrollment for the following summer.
The deposit is refundable less a fee of $100 per one-, two, or three-week session for each camper’s enrollment canceled in writing before January 1. A fee of $250 per one-, two, or three-week session will apply for each cancellation received before February 1, and a fee of $350 will apply per one-, two-, or three-week session for each cancellation received before March 15, and a fee of $500 will apply per one-, two- or three-week session for each cancellation received before May 1.
No refunds will be given for cancellations after May 1.
A single exception is made for campers who suffer a physical illness or injury on or after May 1 and whose attending physician certifies in writing that the illness or injury will not allow the camper to safely participate in any offered camp session. In this event, we will refund the camper’s tuition less a cancellation fee of $500.
Campers who arrive at camp late or leave early will receive pro-rata refunds only when it is the result of the camper’s physical injury or illness, certified by his or her physician. Homesickness or dismissal from camp are not grounds for refund.
Payments for additional options such as store credit and bus transportation will be fully refunded at the time of cancellation.
