Frequently Asked Questions

We promote a friendly and inclusive environment. Our staff is trained to encourage positive interactions among campers, and we monitor group dynamics to ensure everyone feels comfortable and engaged. Campers are grouped by age and grade.

If a camper loses something, our lost and found is accessible for parents to check during pick-up. We encourage labeling your child’s belongings to help us return items promptly.

We have a behavior management system in place to address any issues that might occur. Our approach is focused on positive reinforcement and open communication. If a camper poses harm to themselves or others, we may need to excuse them from the program. If this occurs, no refunds are available.

Photo release forms are built into every registration form. We use photos on our social channels and in marketing and promotion of the program. We also share on parent portals. Photos will only appear on approved channels owned/operated by the organization.

Each program has a specific process. You can submit a cancellation request here but please note the policy details and timing for change requests and cancellation procedures.
