Payment Plan Option (w/Automatic Credit Card Billing)

To utilize our Payment Plan option, prior to enrolling your child into camp, you must complete an Automatic Credit Card Billing Authorization Form.

How the Payment Plan option works:

• Pay for your child’s first week of camp in full and also pay a non-refundable $25 payment for each
  additional week for which you’d like to enroll.

• The remaining balance must be received in full at least one week prior to each enrolled week of

• If payments are not made by 5pm each Monday before your child’s enrolled week of camp begins,
   the full amount will be charged to the credit card on file.

We encourage you to only enroll for weeks you plan to attend as you are holding a valuable spot.
