Pricing and Discounts

2024 TUITION | The Campus (thecampuscc.com)

 

  • Discounts: The Sibling Discount does not apply to the first child (first child = the child attending the most weeks; age is not a factor). Discounts can be “stacked” so you can apply more than one discount at a time.

 

  • Administrative/Tech Fee: There is a $60 one-time administrative fee per child. This is only paid once and will be waived for returning campers.

 

  • Can I pay via check or cash? We offer online payment options including Echeck which has no surcharge fee. Credit card payments incur a 3.5% surcharge. If you want to pay with a check or cash, please reach out to Jane and she will help you.

 

Refund Policy

We have a strict NO REFUND policy. If your camper cannot attend a week, please let us know prior to the start of camp on June 10th. We will be happy to switch your week(s) as long as spaces remain open. In the event that you cannot reschedule, a store credit will remain on your account. This credit can be used towards other programs offered by The Campus such as Learn to Skate or Birthday Parties. It can also be kept on account for up to one year and can be applied to the next summer camp season.

Store Credit

As of 12/31/2023, any credit from 2022 or prior has expired and can no longer be utilized. If you have a credit from 2023 and do not see it on your account, please reach out to Jane to discuss this.

 

CIT Program

For children/teens age 14 – 16, the Counselor in Training program is available. This is a volunteer program that allows young teens to gain work experience. Former campers are welcome to apply and can participate at no cost. The application process is currently open. Please direct questions to Jane.

The only exception to cell phones is in the case of a medical issue. Please coordinate that directly with the summer camp director.

We realize that campers, especially the older ones, may bring their phone anyway. Please explain to them that if their cell phone is out and they do not follow counselor directions to put the phone away, it will be taken from them and returned when they are picked up. We are happy to help your camper(s) get in touch with you if they need to and vice versa. In more urgent instances, you will receive a phone call from our First Aid office or a leadership team member. Please make sure your Emergency Contact information is up to date.

Medical Information

Your camper’s medical information is vital to ensuring the health and safety of all our campers and must be fully completed prior to your child’s arrival first day of camp attendance.

To access the medical form, please log in to your CampBrain account and click on “view details” then click on the blue calendar icon next to your camper’s name/registration. You will see the list of forms.

If your medical form lists “To Be Completed’, please make sure it gets done and is submitted as soon as possible. If your camper needs to have medication administered during the day, please email me and I will send you our medication form. This form needs to be completed separately from our online process.

It is all imperative that all medical information is completed so our First Aid office can handle each illness and injury swiftly and appropriately.

Authorized Pick-up List

Any person, including parents and guardians, must be listed in this section of your camper’s profile to drop off or pick up your child from camp. You can update this at any time and you can add contacts up to one hour before pickup time (if you need to update permissions). Only those listed in this section will be permitted to pick up your child! If your name is not listed on the Authorized Pick-Up List, it may take us up to one hour to release your child. 

Swimming

All campers will have the pool and creek as part of their camp schedule.

POOL

All campers must take a swim test with us during their first pool session on Monday of each week. We record and save this information for the summer. If they pass, they get a wristband which indicates they can be in the pool without a life jacket. If they do not pass, campers must wear a camp-provided life jacket. We no longer allow campers to bring a flotation device from home. There are always two lifeguards on duty as well as the pool manager, counselors and CITs in the pool area. All lifeguards hold a current certification, and all staff are trained in CPR/First Aid.

CREEK

All campers who choose to kayak are required to wear a camp-provided life vest. We also have at least one lifeguard stationed in the creek area for increased safety and supervision.

Lunch Information and Menu

We strive to maintain a nut-free facility. Our staff are trained in food allergy awareness and are made aware of any allergies/medical instruction for the campers in their group. Please refrain from sending your camper with any food that contains nuts of any kind. If your camper has any food allergy, please communicate that via the medical form. We can provide ingredient lists for the products we use. Your camper can also bring a home packed lunch even if food allergies are not a factor. You can also

 

Theme Day and Field Trip Calendar

Our Field Trip and Theme Day calendar is still being arranged for 2024 and will be posted prior to the start of camp. You can view the 2023 calendar on our website here: CAMP CALENDAR | The Campus (thecampuscc.com)

To ensure that all families have the chance to register for field trips, registration won’t generally open until the week prior, especially for our smaller trips. Field Trips will be added to CampBrain and registration instructions will be provided each week.

Field Trips are available on a first-come, first-served basis and have an additional cost. Pricing varies based on the field trip destination. All field trips are optional. We do our best to open field trips at varying times to give every family the opportunity to register. Our trips tend to fill up quickly so watch your email closely during the Summer Camp season.

Campers who do not participate in any scheduled field trip will continue to have a fun-filled camp schedule.

Contact Information

 If you ever have a question or concern, please do not hesitate to reach out. The best way to reach us during the Summer Camp season is via email at Summer@TheCampusCC.com.

During camp hours, you can reach us at 610-269-0619. We kindly request that you select email as the first option so we can limit phone traffic and answer your questions in a timely manner.

We do our best to answer your questions as quickly as possible, but please be advised that we do not require our team members to answer emails outside of work hours. Thank you for your understanding as our wonderful and dedicated team members appreciate the chance to decompress and fulfill their family obligations each evening.
