Cancellations made 14-29 days before the start of a session will receive a 50% refund, less the $25 cancellation fee. Cancellations made 13 days or less before the start of a session are non-refundable. Cancellation refunds and fees are applied per camp week.
Will my children of different ages be in the same camp?
We will cap our camps at 85 students each week. Students attending the camp range from Kindergarten through Fifth Grade, and this year, we will be broken into five cohort groups. Each group will be comprised of similar age groups in order to best facilitate our theme-based curriculum per the camper's development.

In case of Illness:
We ask that you please monitor your camp participant daily for any symptoms of illness (new cough, fever/chills, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, or new loss of taste or smell) and for any other symptoms such as fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, sore throat, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, new nasal congestion, and runny nose.
If your camper is experiencing any of the symptoms, they will need to refrain from attending camp until their symptoms have resolved without any medication or if Covid, once a negative test has been received.
In addition, we kindly ask that you please alert the camp director immediately at email@example.com or by calling 541.797.8069 if your child is experiencing any symptoms.
If your child is experiencing any of these symptoms, it is better to pause and skip a day than to send your child to camp.
If your camper has had a high-risk exposure (i.e. a prolonged indoor exposure to a positive family member), current CDC guidelines recommend that they wear a mask for up to 10 days following the exposure. While we cannot enforce this recommendation, we do ask all participants to consider masking indoors if they have been exposed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
