When Your Camper Wants to Extend…
Every summer, many campers are having such an amazing Tamarack experience that they don’t want it to end! Tamarack will provide a reasonable cost for your camper(s) to enjoy more time at Tamarack in Summer 2020. Of course, you will save money on longer existing sessions by registering for them in the first place (prior to October 16 2019)! Please note that applicable discounts will be increased based on newly extended, existing sessions.
One or more of the following significant discounts may apply in connection with the registration of your family’s campers:
A camper who attended at least one regular session at (i.e. not a Mini Acorn weekend or day trip) Camp Tamarack or Zodiac Day Camp in Summer 2019 is automatically entitled to the Loyalty Discount (see chart below), based on his/her registered session. A credit for payment for a Mini-Acorn weekend may also be used in the same or subsequent summer.
The second, third, forth and/or firth camper from the same family (i.e. registered for the same or shorter session as the camper registered for the longest session) is entitled to a Sibling Discount (see chart below), based on his/her registered session. The family’s second camper is entitled to the sibling discount noted in the chart below for his/her same/shorter session. Similarly, a family’s third/fourth/fifth camper(s) is/are entitled to a multiple of the applicable Sibling Discount amount(s) as noted below, as follows: double for the third camper, triple for the fourth camper and quadruple for the fifth (or higher) camper.
The enhanced aspect of this discount will be applied manually once the registration has been formally submitted
If one of a camper’s parents is a former Tamarack camper or staff member, such camper is entitled to the Alumni Discount (see chart below), based on his/her registered session.
A Tamarack family that notifies Tamarack that it referred a new camper from a different family is entitled to a Referral Discount (see chart below), based on the session initially registered for by the new camper for that initial summer. If the new camper withdraws, the Referral Discount will not apply. Only one family may receive a Referral Discount for each new Tamarack camper. If you are a former Tamarack camper or staff member and, therefore, use an Alumni Discount, no Referral Discount can be used by another family in connection with your children’s registration.
Pay By Cheque/Cash Discount
A family that pays its full Tamarack camp fee by cheque or cash (as opposed to credit card) is entitled to the discount below that corresponds to the session registered for the applicable camper(s).
|Extended First Session||$100||$100||$100||$125||$120|
|Acorn 1 & Acorn 2||N/A||$25||$35||$35||$50|
Refunds & Cancellations
A REFUND of all fees paid for the camper in question will be issued, subject to a CANCELLATION ADMINISTRATION CHARGE, provided that written notice of cancellation has been received, as follows:
|Date of Cancellation||Cancellation
|First Session||Acorn 1 / Acorn 2/ Second Session||Acorn 3 / Acorn 4/ Acorn 5|
|Prior to March 31, 2020||$750||$500||$300||$200|
|Between April 1, 2020
and June 1, 2020
Camp Tamarack may terminate the registration of any camper in the sole discretion of the Camp Directors with no refund whatsoever issued for the unused portion of the session for which the camper in question is registered. A partial refund, if any, related to such camper’s dismissal may be issued by the Camp Directors based on their judgment as to the circumstances related to such dismissal.
- If removal of the camper is voluntary and not as a result of dismissal, any family cancelling a camper’s registration after June 1 (provided that written notice of cancellation has been received by the Camp and provided that once the Camp season actually begins, the date of cancellation or withdrawal is the actual date the camper leaves camp and not the date of the written notice of cancellation) will be issued a refund, subject to a CANCELLATION ADMINISTRATION CHARGE equal to the greater of the following: 1) 50% of the applicable fee for the session for which the camper is registered; 2) a proportion of the fee for the session for which the camper is registered, based on the number of camp days that have actually taken place (including the date of withdrawal), plus five (5) days, divided by the total number of days in the session in question; 3) if a full season camper cancels after more than 50% of the days in the first four week session have taken place, but prior to Visitors’ Day, the full fee for the first session; 4) if a first or second session camper cancels after more than 50% of the days in the applicable session have taken place, the full fee for the session for which the camper is registered; and 5) if a full season camper cancels on or after Visitors’ Day (eg. if a 7 week full season camper reduces his/her stay to the 4 week first session), the full fee for the four week session plus a proportion of the difference between the fee for the four week session and the fee for the full season. Such proportion is based on the number of camp days in the second session that have taken place (including the date of withdrawal), plus five (5) days, divided by the total number of days in the second session.
