Payment Terms, Cancellations and Refunds: Deposit: $950.00 ($600.00 for Rookie Week) is due upon registration. It is understood that after registration and deposit the remaining tuition and fees will be divided into three equal payments payable on December 15, March 15 and May 15. All camp fees must be paid in full by May 15th. All tuition and fees are fully refundable until December 31, 2019. Thereafter, cancellation fees will be assessed as follows: $300.00 from 12/16/2020 to 3/28/2020, $500.00 from 4/1/2020 to 4/15/2020. Cancellations after 4/15/20 will not qualify for any refund. Refunds will not be given for late arrivals, early departures due to homesickness, inability to adjust or other personal reasons. One half of the remaining tuition will be refunded in the event a camper terminates due to an illness/injury and a recommendation of a physician for that specific illness/injury. Reducing the number of weeks originally enrolled for prior to April 15 2020 will be considered a cancellation of those weeks and will incur a penalty of $100.00 per week cancelled. Any agreed upon refunds after the start of the camp season, will be distributed at the close of the camp season. I have read the reverse side of this application form and understand all terms and conditions described herein. I hereby give Camp Half Moon permission to use my child’s image in their brochures, videos, Internet sites and other camp advertising. By signing below I acknowledge and agree to the above stated cancellation policy and the camper release on the reverse side.
The Camp Fee: The camp fee includes tuition, basic activity programs & supplies, basic infirmary care, laundry & meals. Each camper is also required to have a spending account established.

Bus Transportation will be charged at the actual cost plus the cost of the staff chaperone. The Directors will endeavor to block-schedule and prorate charges when possible.
Camper Release: By signing this registration from I acknowledge that I have read the entire registration terms and I give my child permission to participate in all camp programs, excursions and special outings as planned and supervised by Camp Half Moon. I recognize there are risks inherent in most camp activities and hold harmless the related parties (staff, volunteers and directors) from and against all claims and demands whatsoever on account of or in anyway from any accidental occurrence. We fully understand the Camp reserves the right to dismiss at its sole discretion any camper whose condition, conduct, influence or behavior is deemed by the Camp as unsatisfactory or detrimental to the best interests of the Camp or who violates the Camp Rules and Regulation. No refunds are to be made for campers dismissed for misconduct or disciplinary reason. Misconduct and illegal acts, such as using non-prescription drugs, smoking and consuming alcoholic beverages are prohibited. Violations of these terms will constitute grounds for dismissal from camp. We acknowledge that the Camp does not maintain any health or medical insurance, which would cover the camper while attending camp. The parent or legal guardian shall be responsible for the cost of the medal treatment, prescription drugs or special purchases provided to their child during the camping season. Prescription medications will be billed to the parents. The camp will not be responsible for the personal health and well-being of children whose health forms are not submitted prior to the arrival of the child at Camp, or if the emergency release form is not signed by the parent. I have read the above and understand and agree to its meaning.
