To our community, staff, our camp families, and our campers. As parents and camp owners for 20 years we certainly appreciate the uncertain and unprecedented time we are all experiencing. Like you, we are monitoring the Covid-19 situation closely as we prepare and plan for camp this summer.
It is crystal clear to us that all of our kids need summer camp more than ever now. Social distancing is hard on all of us, especially our children. Camp is a special place, providing our children opportunities to grow their social, physical, and emotional selves, like no other place in the world. Although there are still obstacles in front of us and progress to be made, we are optimistic Adventure Day Camp will operate this summer.
We understand that your planning this year may feel uncertain, as the situation is changing daily. As a result, we have updated our terms and conditions to offer you peace of mind to enroll for the 2020 summer.
Although tuition is nonrefundable, if we are forced to cancel YOUR summer program due to forces beyond our control (force majeure), you will have the option to have ALL of your paid tuition credited to be used towards the 2021 summer. In addition, you will be guaranteed to lock in the lower 2020 rate that you now secure. We do expect tuition to increase in 2021.
If Adventure Day Camp does not operate YOUR program due to forces beyond our control (force majeure), a non-recoverable amount of money already spent by Adventure Day Camp may be deducted before you are issued a refund. This amount includes funds already spent up until the time the camp declares YOUR camp program will not operate. We expect this to be approximately $400 per full day, 3 session tuition.
If we are forced to cancel parts or all of YOUR summer program due to forces beyond our control (force majeure) you will have the option to move any part or all of YOUR session to other 2020 sessions without any transfer fees
Most importantly, we are fully confident that when we do operate camp, we will always keep your child safe and healthy. In addition to our longstanding and thorough safety procedures and staff training protocols, we will follow the latest guidelines on health and safety, cleaning and preparedness from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the local departments of health in our area. As information is changing quickly, we are regularly reviewing and updating our policies to ensure that we stay current with CDC/local recommendations to keep our campers and staff safe. Well before camp starts, we will provide you with complete details of all of our updated procedures.
These times will not last forever and we have to trust that once we do see life return to “normal” our appreciation for aspects of our life we may have overlooked in the past will be strong. We will get through this, and Adventure Day Camp will be there to greet you and your family on that first day of camp.
If you have any questions about our policies, plans, or procedures, we are always available to answer your questions or concerns.
Stay safe, well, and happy.
