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.
A $500 deposit can be put down to reserve your spot, with full payment and forms due June 1st. After June 1st, full payment and forms are due at time of registration. Sign up for an interest-free payment plan if you wish to extend payments beyond June 1st.
We accept Visa and MasterCard. Credit card charges are normally processed by the next business day after we receive your registration. We accept checks for tuition payment, and your camper’s spot is reserved once we receive your check.
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 June 15. There is normally no refund after June 15, and for Summer 2020 we plan to give a full refund if we must cancel camp due to COVID-19. During camp, there is no refund for camper illness, missed days, vacations, or dismissal from the program.
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 can negatively affect 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 who need 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.
