If you have paid by check, your refund will arrive in three weeks. Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover Card payments will be credited to your account.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed! If you are not completely satisfied with our program, please call our Office at 215-504-8532 or 215-968-8016 by the last day of any camp.
All Medical/Emergency information will be managed through the Camp Doc System. You will be asked to register or update your current information prior to the beginning of camp. For your child's safety and protection, this information must be entered prior to the start date of your child's camp. We will need this information to contact you in case your child experiences an accident or illness. Information concerning the use of the system will be mailed to you with your confirmation letter.
If an emergency occurs, and you need to notify your child, please call the Office of Continuing Education at 215-968-8409 or 215-968-8016. We will contact your child. We discourage the use of cell phones during our camp day as it is disruptive to the camp program.
If your child arrives after the camp start time, please bring him/her to Cottage 3 (Continuing Ed office) and SIGN IN. A staff member will bring your child to the specific camp.
If you need to pick-up your child early from camp, please fill out the Kids on Campus Early Dismissal Form, and give it to your camp instructor. Your child will be brought to the Pavilion where you can meet him/her, and SIGN OUT with identification. (This form may be duplicated as needed.)
