COVID-19 and Camp
Today we have been met with news from the provincial government that overnight summer camp programs will not be permitted to run in the summer of 2020.
We know that this is the right choice to promote the safety and well being of our overnight campers and staff members. We recognize also that the last several months have been a difficult time for many of our camp families and we want to assure you that Cave Springs Camp will still have options for summer fun and community engagement in the upcoming months.
Our Board of Directors will be meeting to finalize a decision about our onsite day camp programs for this summer. If your family also has camper(s) in our day camp program please look for further communication from us regarding the operation of day camp by June 1.
In the meantime, there will be 3 options made available for our camp families as a result of mandated camp cancellation.
We are offering three options for refunds, as we understand everyone’s situation has been impacted differently. This will help our ministry as we prepare for many more years of life-changing summers.
Option 1: Full payment for 2021
We will register your camper for the same week and program in 2021 and carry the full registration fee from 2020 to 2021. If you need to switch to a different week or cancel later on, no problem, just give us a call and we can do that for you. By signing up for next year now, you will secure your spot for next year at this year’s price.
Option 2: Partial Refund with Donation
If you would like to leave all or a portion of your registration fee as a donation we would greatly appreciate it, and issue you a tax receipt. Due to the quantity of requests that we need to process, please allow up to 90 days for the refund options you choose to be processed. We will provide your refund in the same method that you paid (either credit card or check). You will receive a confirmation email with a receipt after we have processed your refund.
Option 3: Full Refund minus $5 Administrative Processing Fee
We will refund your full registration fee and waive our cancelation fee. There will be a $5 fee per registered camper/week to cover the processing costs of our online registration program. Due to the quantity of requests that we need to process, please allow up to 90 days for the refund options you choose to be processed. We will provide your refund in the same method that you paid (either credit card or check). You will receive a confirmation email with a receipt after we have processed your refund.
Please respond with your choice of Refund Option 1, 2, or 3 to firstname.lastname@example.org. All refunds will be process in order of week of registration for the summer. Please allow up to 90 days for all refunds to be processed.
If there are any special circumstances that you would like us to be aware of, don’t hesitate to email Sharon at email@example.com
Other than that, we will continue to prepare for offering the best summer camp experience possible for 2021. Thank you for your continued support.
