Refund Policy

Our refund policy is designed to discourage last minute cancellations and to help families on our waiting list. The fee is refundable minus 10% up to May 1. After May 1, there is no refund. During camp, there is no refund for camper illness, missed days, vacations, or dismissal from the program. Full Disclosure - In order for us to make camp a successful experience for all our campers, the information provided by parents / guardians must be complete and accurate for each child.  Any false or misleading information is grounds for immediate dismissal from camp.

The Roughing It Quality Guarantee

We stand behind the quality of our camp programs and fully guarantee your child's satisfaction at camp. All our staff are dedicated to making sure every child's experience at camp is safe, fun, and fulfilling. We know that starting camp can be a period of transition for children, so we recommend parents work with us pro-actively if any issue arises and attend at least the first five days of camp. Our Quality Guarantee does not apply to campers dismissed from camp, or withdrawal from camp due to illness, injury, or child developmental issues such as homesickness.
