COVID-19 Refund Policy

If we have to cancel in-person camps due to COVID-19 prior to the start of camp, full refunds will be issued to the families who are impacted. For camp sessions that have already started and need to shut down due to COVID-19, pro-rated refunds will be issued. Additionally, if your child or someone in your household has to quarantine due to a positive test or COVID-19 exposure, full (if prior to the start of the camp session) or prorated (if camp is in process) refunds will be issued. Students who must quarantine will also have the option to switch to an online camp offering.
