Everything You Need to Know About Summer Camp


  1. $25 deposit per week. This is a NONREFUNDABLE deposit! The balance (minus the deposit) for each week is due one week prior to date of camp.
    See calendar provided at registration.
  2. Prepayment for all camp weeks will be accepted.

REFUND / TRANSFER FEE: There is a $10.00 charge per refund or transfer made after initial registration. Please make every effort to finalize your summer care needs PRIOR to camp registration so that you can avoid these fees.  The camp registration fee ($15) and deposit ($25) are NON-REFUNDABLE. Two weeks notice required for all other refund request – no exceptions. Please note refund checks take 2-3 weeks to be sent out. Fieldtrip refunds require 24 hour notice – unless tickets must be pre-purchased by our department – then no refund.

LATE PAYMENT FEE: There will be a $10 late payment fee if payment is not made by the deadline of one week before the beginning of each camp week. If payment is not made by the Wednesday prior to camp, the child will not be able to attend and you will forfeit your deposit. This is due to this camp being a first-come, first-serve basis and with children on the waiting list, we need to have ample time to fill the spot if your child is not able to attend.

LATE PICKUP FEE: There will be a $5 late fee every 15 minutes for each child picked up after 6:00pm.
