All FAQs were updated  12/20/20 unless otherwise noted.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

Will you be open in Summer 2021?

At this time, it is our intention to open camp because we know OUR CAMPERS NEED CAMP! We are planning to operate safely and at near-full capacity. Registration 2021 Opening Day - January 5

Where will camp be held this summer?

Camp location decision will be decided once we receive clear guidelines from the NJ state health department on how we are allowed to operate

How are you planning for Summer 2021?

We know that the world is in a constant state of change with new information unfolding almost daily. Amidst this unpredictability, we have crafted a simple philosophy to guide our planning and decision making for next summer. 

Safety is our guiding principle and keeping our campers and staff healthy and protected will guide us in making decisions. We will continue to work with our medical committee, our COVID task force, and local and state governments to help guide our planning.

What health protocols will be in place for Summer 2021?

We are launching enrollment based on the plan of being able to operate safely and at near-full capacity. We also know that within this scenario we may need to adjust our health protocols and programming to ensure for the safest summer possible in 2021, and we will communicate any adjustments as we move along through the year. As always, we are working closely with our medical committee, our COVID task force, and local and state governments to ensure we are following their guidelines.

With so much uncertainty, why should I enroll early?

Registration 2021 Opening Day - January 5

Here are some of our reasons why enrolling your children early makes a difference to us all.

Partnership - Enrolling early is an investment in camp. It allows us to anticipate enrollment number and income so we can plan for a super summer, hire exceptional staff early before they consider other opportunities, and plan programming and materials better. Help us have the best summer ever - enroll early!

Planning - The earlier you register, the longer you will have to pay. Camp fees need to be paid in full by June 1st, so enrolling now will make a real difference. We are here to work with you and create a financial/payment plan that best works for your family.

Peace of Mind - Not only does enrolling early check a box off of your to-do list, but it allows you to secure your child's spot for Summer 2021. From now until May 1st, 2021 all payments are fully refundable and all session selections may be modified, so there is no financial risk to you. In that spirit, we have decreased our deposit to $150 (previously $300 per camper) to reduce any financial burden.

Enrolling for camp takes some uncertainty out of this uncertain time and gives you and your child something to look forward to!


FINANCIAL QUESTIONS

If I rolled-over a portion of my 2020 family tuition payments, do I still have to make a deposit?

First of all, thank you - we were so moved by all of our families who chose to roll-over their tuition dollars! At this time, we do not need an additional deposit from you, your tuition statement has been updated to show the credited funds. Please re-enroll your children and your credit will automatically be applied.

New families and those who did not roll over their tuition will need to provide a $100 deposit plus $50 regsitration fee per camper to enroll.

Will you be offering refunds if camp is cancelled?

Until May 1st, 2021 all payments are fully refundable. In the event that we cannot safely operate our summer programming in 2021, families will be eligible for a full refund, opportunity to maintain their credit for a future summer or donate funds.

Should a family choose to cancel enrollment after May 1st, 2021, refunds will be subject to our regular cancellation policy that can be found in the Terms & Conditions section of our online application.

Are there any enrollment discounts being offered for Summer 2021?

We continue to offer a variety of discounts please see our dates and rates page

What happens if we enroll now but then need to withdraw or make a session change?

From now until May 1st, 2021 all payments are fully refundable and all session selections may be modified.
