Deposits, Refunds, and Cancellations


In order to secure your child's place in our summer camp, a $30.00 deposit is required. This deposit guarantees that your camper will have a spot reserved for the requested week of summer camp. To complete the enrollment process, we kindly request that you submit the deposit along with your application, health, and waiver forms.

We understand the importance of ensuring a smooth registration process for all campers, and to facilitate this, we ask that the remaining camp cost be settled two weeks prior to your designated camp week.

By adhering to these deposit and payment guidelines, you can rest assured that your child's place in the summer camp is secured, allowing them to embark on a memorable and enriching camp experience.

Should you have any questions or need further assistance with the enrollment process, please feel free to reach out to us. We are thrilled to welcome your child to our summer camp and look forward to creating lasting memories together!


Why We Ask for A Deposit

  1. Commitment: Collecting a deposit ensures that families are committed to sending their children to the camp. It helps reduce the likelihood of last-minute cancellations or no-shows, allowing the camp to plan and allocate resources more effectively.

  2.  Capacity Planning: We have limited capacity, and knowing how many campers to expect helps with logistical planning, such as arranging accommodations, meals, and staffing. Deposits provide a way for us to gauge the actual number of participants.

  3.  Camp Store Credit: Your deposit serves a dual purpose. It acts as a credit for campers to use at the camp store upon arrival, enhancing the overall camp experience.

  4.  Fair Allocation of Resources: Camp New Journey operates on a tight budget, and a deposit helps ensure that resources are allocated efficiently. It allows camps to plan activities, staff training, and other aspects based on confirmed attendance.

  5.  Encourages Timely Registration: Requesting a deposit encourages families to complete the registration process promptly. This helps us in the pre-camp preparation phase and allows us to communicate effectively with enrolled families.
