Cancellation Policy

Please be advised that once you have registered your child for ECO Camp, there is a portion of your payment that is non-refundable. Should you decide to withdraw your child from ECO Camp at least 2 weeks prior to their scheduled week, the remaining balance of your payment, minus a $10 administration fee, will be refunded.

If you cancel your child’s registration less than 2 weeks prior to the day of camp, no refund of camp fees will be issued, except for medical reasons or at the discretion of the rare Educators.

Should COVID safety restrictions require P.D. Day ECO Camp to be cancelled, a full refund will be provided for all registered campers. If camp spots are not adequately filled two weeks prior to the camp day, we reserve the right to cancel the PD Day Camp and issue a full refund.
