Tuition Payment & Cancellation Policy

Revised November 4, 2020

Application Fee

At the time of enrollment, a non-refundable application fee of $100, in addition to the tuition deposit, will be collected for each camper enrolled for one or more sessions in the 2021 season.

Tuition Payment

At the time of enrollment, for each one-, two, or three-week session enrolled, there is a $750 tuition deposit due. Thus, in the example of a camper enrolling for four weeks (two 2-week sessions), a $1,500 tuition deposit is collected at the time of enrollment. This deposit requirement can be satisfied by direct payment or by means of a balance rollover from the 2020 season.

The options for payment of the remainder of the tuition are: 1) Payment of the remaining tuition balance (by November 30 to receive an additional discount), or 2) Payment of the tuition balance in three equal installments on February 1, March 15, and May 1. All payments must be made either by 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 balance due after the $750 deposit will be collected on the remaining installment dates in equal portions.  For example, if enrollment occurs for a session on February 2, the $750 deposit will be collected and half the remaining balance will be collected on March 15 and the other half will be collected on May 1.

Late Arrival/Early Departure from Camp

Late arrivals and early departures from camp are disruptive to the camper’s overall experience, negatively impact their cabin group, and require extra staffing. Our community-focused program is intentionally set up to allow for friendships and group bonding to start on the first day of camp and for important closure activities to occur at the end of the session. 

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.

Cancellation Policy

Any deposit for the 2021 season made by a payment or by means of rollover from the 2020 season is fully refundable until November 30, 2020.  Any credit originating in the 2019 season or earlier will remain as credit and is not refundable.  Beginning December 1, 2020, a fee of $150 per one-, two, or three-week session will apply for each cancellation received before February 1, 2021, a fee of $300 will apply per one-, two-, or three-week session for each cancellation received before March 15, 2021, and a fee of $500 will apply per one-, two- or three-week session for each cancellation received before May 1, 2021.

No refunds will be given for cancellations after May 1, 2021.

A single exception to this statement is made for campers who suffer a physical illness or injury on or after May 1, 2021, 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.

Discounts

For the 2021 season, there are three opportunities to receive a tuition discount: 1) Enroll with a $750 deposit on or before November 30, 2020, and receive a three percent tuition discount; 2) Enroll and pay the full tuition before November 30, 2020, and receive a six percent tuition discount; and 3) Enroll a second child from the same household, and receive a 6% tuition discount for the child with the lower tuition value. Receive a nine or twelve percent tuition discount for enrolling a third or fourth child from the same household, respectively. Fall discounts for enrolling by November 30, 2020, do not apply to the Junior Counselor program.

In addition to the discounts described above, for enrollments rolled over from the 2020 season that included all tuition payments, an additional discount will be applied (“Rollover Discount”) using a formula that will make net tuition due equal to net tuition in 2020.
