    Personal Expense Account: Each camper will deposit money into a camp expense account from which we deduct fees for horse shows, canteen, camp trips, bowling, movies and rollerskating etc.  We suggest a beginning balance of $250.

    Cancellation Policy
    Deposits are non-refundable for any reason. Camp tuition fees are non-refundable for any reason if you have to cancel your enrollment after April 1, 2018.  Since camp fees are not refundable after April 1, 2018, we recommend that you procure travel interruption insurance in case your daughter cannot attend her scheduled camp session for any reason, including but not limited to sickness or injury. Our expenses are fixed in advance based on a definite number of campers for a specified time, therefore there will be no rebates or deductions taken from any fees for entering late or leaving early for any reason.  Any camper violating camp rules and regulations or using or possessing drugs or alcohol on or off premises during their stay will be expelled and their fees and expenses will not be refunded. I agree to remove my daughter upon notification if she exhibits emotional, behavioral or psychological conditions which are disruptive to the camp program or harmful to herself, without refund of any fees.  We strongly recommend that you procure Camper Cancellation Insurance in case your daughter cannot attend for any reason, including, but not limited to sickness or injury.
