Summer CampREC Fees & Payment Process
|Number of Children||Resident / VRC Member||Non-Resident|

The discount for the 2nd,3rd and 4th+ child applies to children living in the same household and enrolled in the same week. When registering your child for camp, you are required to pay a deposit of $25 per child per week to hold your child’s weekly spot for camp. This deposit fee will be subtracted from your total weekly payment fee for camp and is non-refundable. Please note: You will not be able to change from a weekly enrollment to a daily enrollment.
The rest of the payment for the week is due by 6:30pm on the Friday 10 days prior to each week the child is enrolled. If you fail to pay your balance in full, your child will be un-enrolled from the corresponding week of camp and you will lose your $25 deposit.
If your child is unable to attend any week of camp for which they are enrolled, you must contact the Recreation Programs Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org in writing 10 days prior to the week enrolled. If this is completed, you will not be held responsible for the week’s remaining balance, but the $25 deposit will be forfeited. This will be permitted TWICE per child during the camp season. If you do not give a 10 day notice in writing, you will be responsible for the week’s payment regardless of attendance.
