Payment & Financial Assistance

There will be no refunds if a child does not attend camp. There will be a $25 fee for all returned checks or charges. 

Although there is no hard deadline to apply for financial assistance, we ask for a minimum of 5 business days for us to review new financial assistance applications. Applications must be reviewed, in good order, and payment received before the child may attend camp. Please submit as soon as you think you are interested in camp. Learn more >
