Registration/Refund Policies

Q:What are the registration policies? What about refunds?
A:Registration Policies
  • Registration incurs a $110 nonrefundable fee per camper.

  • If cancellation is made prior to 10 calendar days of the camp start date, the balance of camp fees paid (not including the $100 deposit, but all other charges such as store and bus) will be refunded in the manner paid (credit card, check, etc.). Cancellation of camp within 10 days of the start of camp will not yield a refund.

  • You may change sessions as space permits until 10 days prior to your session’s start date without penalty.

  • If a camper does not attend due to a Director-approved illness, injury or other situation, the family may choose another session during the current camp season. If the camper is unable to select another week, the balance of the fees (not including the $110 deposit) will be returned.

Financial Aid

Q:How can I apply for financial assistance?
  • Financial aid is available for the cost of camp only, up to 50% of camp fees. CYC does not fully fund campers.

  • Financial aid applications are due April 30, no exceptions. $110 is due per camper upon application for financial aid. Incomplete applications or those submitted without payment will not be considered.

  • CYC will notify all applicants of their determinations by May 15. If you do not receive sufficient aid, your $110 deposit can be refunded by returning the Determination letter.

  • Payment arrangements on the balance (with or without a financial aid award) can be set up online or with the registrar. If payment arrangements are not honored, you may lose the amount already paid and/or registration. All fees must be paid before the start of camp.

  • To request a financial aid application and learn of other fundraising suggestions, contact the CYC office after January 1. Applications can also be found online.

  • Financial aid cannot be combined with the family discount. Sampler sessions do not qualify for financial aid. Campers may use Camp Champ dollars to offset their costs of attending camp after financial aid awards are given.
