Payment/Refund/Transfers

Your completed registration form, along with a $30 deposit is required at the time of sign up for each week of camp for each child you wish to enroll in our summer camp program. This deposit will hold your camper’s spot for the summer and will be applied to the total cost of each week. Your balance of the fee per week is due according to the payment schedule. If you do not follow the payment schedule, you will be charged a $15 late fee. DEPOSIT AND CAMP FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

A $15 Late Registration Fee will be applied to your payment if you register for any camp after the Wednesday your camp registration fee is due (4 days prior to the start of a new week of camp). For example, if you register for Week 1 (June 13-17) before June 9th, you will not have to pay the late fee. If you register for Week 1 on or after June 8th, you will be assessed the late fee.

Day-of Registration is not allowed. Your camper will be asked to attend camp the following day (after payment has been made) depending on staff to camper ratios.
