Cancellation Fee

We understand that there are sometimes unforeseen circumstances that will not allow your son to come to the camp after you've registered.  Assuming there is a genuine reason not to be able to make it, we are happy to provide a refund.  That being said, there are expenses we incur for each registration to set up camp and we need to make sure we are not losing money on the transaction.  A 10% fee for any refund will be held to cover those costs.  Thank you for your understanding.
