Cancellation Policy

All cancellations are subject to a $30 processing fee, provided that they are made prior to 14 days of the program start date. No refunds will be given for cancellations that are made within 14 days of the program start date. If you learn that you cannot attend a program within 14 days of the start date, we will work with you if you wish to transfer to another camp of the same monetary value that works for your family.

Weather Related Cancellation

In the event that a program is cut short or cancelled due to inclement weather or any other unforeseen issues, every effort will made to make up lost time by extending hours of the camp day. In the unlikely event that portions of the program cannot be made up, no refunds or credits will be offered.

Camps will not be cancelled for rain unless the level of rain has been sufficient to close the fields. Cancelations or stoppages in the camp day will only be made for severe weather such as lightning or extreme heat. If severe weather occurs after the camp has started and the facility has a safe shelter, players will be taken to the shelter and will only return to the field at least 30 minutes after the last lightning strike. If no safe shelter place is available or there is no sign of inclement weather stopping, then parents will be notified via email to promptly pick up their child.
