The Roughing It Quality Guarantee

We stand behind the quality of our camp programs and all our staff are dedicated to making camp safe, fun, and fulfilling for every child. There is sometimes a transition period when starting a brand new experience like camp. If your camper is not enjoying camp, we ask that you work with us proactively and your camper attend at least the first five days of camp. Our Quality Guarantee does not apply to campers dismissed from camp, or withdrawal due to illness, injury, or child developmental issues such as homesickness.

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 – To ensure camp is safe and enjoyable for everyone, parents/guardians must provide Roughing It complete and accurate information about their child on all forms and in all communications. False or misleading information negatively affects the camp experience and is grounds for dismissal from camp.

Essential Eligibility Criteria

In order to ensure the health and safety of all campers, all campers must meet and follow our Essential Eligibility Criteria. Campers needing special assistance should register and complete a Health History Form by April 1st in order for us to adequately assess their needs and put in place any necessary program adaptations. Please contact us if you have questions.
