Questions?

Covid Policy: Due to some of the activities being extremely close-quarters (contact partner) sport and special health concerns of numerous community members, Covid vaccinations are required for all staff and campers please. We are also big on students staying home if experiencing illness in their families, ventilation and outdoor time, as appropriate.

Cancelations: Because we bend over backwards to try and offer multiple discounts and high-quality experiences at a reasonable cost, we do NOT offer refunds. Early registration helps up know what to plan for, and it’s important that things remain as planned (on our end). However, in cases of emergency, credit towards future enrichment programming is an option. We strive to work with families to help resolve emergencies in a compassionate and reasonable manner.
