Sensational Kids Camp Policy
A $75.00 non-refundable registration fee and the required 2 week minimum must be included with all signed applications.
All medical forms must be on file in our camp office before your child’s first session. This is a Department of Health requirement. NO CHILD WILL BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND CAMP WITHOUT A COMPLETED UP TO DATE AND SIGNED MEDICAL FORM. If an up to date medical is not received by the date requested the camp reserves the right to exclude the camper and no refund will be issued.
To secure a place for your child in the camp, all fees must be paid by the dates stated on your bill. A $20.00 late fee will be incurred per month. If registering during the camp season, fees must be paid at the time of registration. Our bus will not pick up your child, nor will any child be allowed to attend camp if fees are not up to date. All outstanding camp fees must be paid in full by July 30th. No personal checks will be accepted after this date.
Extensions or Changes of Sessions
If you wish to extend or change your child’s session or bus service, we must have seven days written notice prior to the extension or change. Any changes made to your original registration will incur a $20.00 fee for each change made. Extensions can only be made if there is space available in the camp’s remaining weeks. All extensions will be at the current rate. There are no exceptions for campers under the early registration rate.
There are no refunds for absences, withdrawals, changes, terminations or unforeseen events (ex. local power outage). Credit will only be given for severe medical emergencies accompanied by a doctor’s note. (Please Note: The 2 week minimum will be deducted from the credit, prior to the start of camp or for any weeks being canceled during the camp season due to severe medical emergencies.) All credit will be issued after the camp season is over. PLEASE NOTE: Credits may affect any discounts or special promotions that were given. Credits can only be used towards the 2018 camp season. Credits cannot be exchanged for monetary value.
The camp will not be put between feuding parents, and will permit both parents to have access to their child and will release the child to either parent unless a court order specifically directs otherwise. The camp reserves the right to dismiss a child from camp without a refund if either parent becomes disruptive or adversely interferes with the functioning of the camp office.
An additional fee is charged for each camper that is picked up after 6:00PM. The fee is $20.00 per ½ hour beginning at 6:00PM. All payments must be made in cash at the time of pickup.
A $20.00 fee will be charged for all returned checks. If this should occur, all remaining fees MUST be paid in cash or money order. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Bus Service - See bus policy.
All campers must wear sneakers or rubber soled shoes at all times. Please Note: If your child does not have appropriate shoes for play, the camp reserves the right to exclude the camper from activities that day. Campers are not permitted to use cell phones at camp or during trips. Camper’s names should be written on everything that is brought to camp. Bathing suits are to be worn under clothes on swim days. Due to additional water activities, campers should carry their swimsuits everyday in their bags. Please be sure that your child has a towel and water shoes. THE CAMP WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOST, STOLEN OR DAMAGED PERSONAL PROPERTY INCLUDING TOYS, VIDEO GAMES, TRADING CARDS, CELL PHONES, IPODS, ETC.
All campers are responsible for bringing their own lunch and any additional snacks. Only brown paper bag lunches will be refrigerated. Insulated bags will not. All lunch bags must be clearly marked with the camper’s name and camper’s division. NO GLASS BOTTLES!
Camp Bags/T-Shirts/Water Bottle
Each camper will receive a complimentary camp bag set containing: 1 T-Shirt, 1 Camp Bag and 1 Water Bottle. Additional T-Shirts may be purchased separately. Please label all items with your child’s name.
Camp scheduled activities begin at 9:00AM. Campers arriving after 9:00AM risk missing a scheduled activity or trip. It is our recommendation that your child wear a camp T-Shirt on trip days.
Optional Trips - See optional trip policy.
All campers must wear the camp T-Shirt on optional trips or they will not be permitted to attend. If the camp has to provide a camp T-Shirt, a $10.00 fee will be incurred and must be paid that evening.
All scheduling is subject to change due to weather conditions or at the discretion of the camp director.
All discipline or behavioral problems will be brought to the attention of the director, documented and parents will be notified. Campers will be given a maximum of three warnings and then dismissed from the camp. In cases of serious behavioral problems, dismissal will be at the discretion of the director. The camp reserves the right to exclude a child from a trip or activity based on their behavior at camp or during trips. Please Note: There will be no credits given for disciplinary exclusions.
Last Day of Camp
Our last day of camp is Friday, August 25th. Please note: We will have a 1/2-day and dismissal will be at 1:00PM. Bus children will depart the camp at 1:00PM.
