Cancellations/Terminations On or After June 1, 2023:

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 a result of dismissal, any family cancelling a camper’s registration after June 1st (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 entitled to a full refund of fees paid, subject to a CANCELLATION ADMINISTRATION CHARGE equal to the greater of the following three amounts:

  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 for which the camper is registered, multiplied by fee paid for said session.
  3. If a camper reduces their stay to a shorter regular camp session, the full fee that would have been payable for the applicable shorter length session, plus a five (5) day fee. For example, if a Full Season camper shortens their stay to First Session, the applicable fee for First Session, plus a five (5) day fee.
  • Prorated refunds and/or make-up days are not available for days absent or as a result of services not being fully utilized
  • Any refund, or a written request for a refund due to special circumstances will be considered during September 2023
  • 13% HST is payable on any fee amount referred to above

    amount owing, together with an administrative charge of $40.00
