Camp Policies

Cancellations / Refunds:

If your plans change preventing your child from attending camp, contact the camp IMMEDIATELY. NO REFUNDS will be issued to those who do not notify the camp by June 1st of a cancellation.

Please notify your sponsor if your plans change and you will not be attending so they can find a replacement. They will not be entitled to a refund if they are not notified.

In the interest of the health and welfare of all the campers, those campers who find it difficult to adjust (examples - homesickness, disruptive behavior, non-compliance with the program) may be sent home by the Camp Director(s) or Camp Chairman and no refunds are permitted. These campers will not be allowed to return to camp. If a parent, for any reason, decides to pick up their child early, no refunds will be issued!

Smoking & Illegal Drugs:

At no time, on or off camp premises, are campers allowed to smoke, drink alcoholic beverages, or use drugs of any kind whatsoever. Our staff members are fully informed of this policy. As many of our campers are teenagers, it is necessary that you stress this issue strongly with your teenage child: We do not tolerate any use, experimentation with, or possession of, drugs in any form. Disregard for any portion of this policy, or constant and flagrant violation of any camp regulation may result in a child's return to home without tuition refund. Offenders will be subject to penalties in accordance with laws of the State of New York.

Incomplete Forms:

Medical forms need to be completed and returned by June 1st to the camp. You must retain a copy and bring it with you on Registration Day in case it gets lost in the mail. We can't and will not accept any child without all the required medical information. We can not use medical information from a previous camping year because the information is too old. Please be sure to use our check list to make sure you have all the forms completed. Our medical staff will be calling all parents during the week of July 1st if there is any information that is missing.

If a camper shows up on a registration day without ALL required medical information and forms they will be sent home and NO refund will be issued!




Gratuities:

We do not allow our counselors and staff members to accept gifts or gratuities of any kind during the camping season. This helps us to maintain a totally professional atmosphere necessary for sound camping. All of our employees are aware of this policy, and any gesture of this nature would be embarrassing to all concerned. Staff members who violate this policy may be subject to dismissal. The best gesture you can make toward a deserving staff member is a personal, written, letter of reference.

Returned Checks:

Since the bank levies a service charge on us for any checks returned, it will be necessary for us to pass this expense on to the person submitting such a check. This charge is $ 30.00.

Please do not bring your pet as they are NOT allowed on the camp grounds!
