MORE INFORMATION REGARDING REGISTRATION
Payment and cancellation policy
(Updated 10/04/2022)

Deposits and Payments:

An initial payment of 20% will be due within one week of your registration. After your initial payment has been made, a monthly payment plan will be set up. The amount you will be charged per month will be calculated based on how many months remain until June 2023. The remaining balance will be spread out and charged to your credit card on the 1st of every month and the final payment will be due on June 1st, 2023.  Please contact us if you prefer to pay via check or cash. Balances can be paid in full anytime.

 

To calculate your initial deposit amount, multiply your total balance by 0.20

Refunds and Cancellations:

If, before December 31st, 2022, WE need to cancel your camper’s session due to COVID-19 or any other unforeseen circumstance, all of your total payments will be refunded less a small $50 administrative fee.

If, after January 1st, 2023, WE need to cancel your camper’s trip due to COVID-19 or any other unforeseen circumstance, 50% of your payments made will be refunded**. This method helps cover any direct costs (materials, staffing, insurance, taxes, etc.) that camp has already paid in preparation for your camper to attend camp. We are always happy to chat more about this, just contact us at 231-299-0005, thank you!

** For families with multiple campers, only 50% of what has been paid for ONE of your accounts will be held and 100% of sibling accounts will be returned.

If YOU need to cancel your camper’s spot in the trip for any reason, refunds will be given, less a $100 administrative fee, and ONLY if we are able to fill their spot.

In order to ensure the healthiest environment possible, if your camper cannot participate in their session due to a COVID exposure directly prior to camp or they’re experiencing COVID-like symptoms, all camp fees will be returned minus a $100 administrative fee.

If paying by check, your monthly payment will also be due within the first week of each month and will need to be mailed to PO Box 1129, Frankfort, MI 49635.

To help us organize your camper's trip and make your child’s camp experience as enjoyable as possible, email us a brief note commenting on any of the following: recent changes in your child’s life; difficulties in school; past camp experiences; unusual/difficult medical or emotional experiences; your child’s ease of making friends; hobbies/activities especially enjoyed; what your child is looking forward to (or not looking forward to) at camp, etc.

It is also helpful for campers to provide a brief statement about themselves. This registration form and both parent and camper statements will be used to organize cabin groups and will be shared with your child’s counselor. All comments will be treated confidentially.
