Cancellation policy: To ensure that our camps are of the highest quality, we plan, schedule, and commit to paying for staff, transportation, and recreational activities months before summer camp begins. Families typically book their camp months in advance. Therefore, last minute cancellations are particularly difficult for us to fill since most campers have already made other arrangements for the summer. Consequently, we cannot provide refunds if you cancel any time after 4 weeks prior to the start day of your camp session and can only provide a 50% refund (based on the program’s total tuition cost) if you cancel anytime between 8 and 4 weeks prior to the start date of your camp session. Any cancellations that take place prior to 8 weeks before the start date of your camp session will be charged a 25% processing fee. If you need to change dates (and space is available in another session during the current summer) there is a $25processing fee.
