Camp Policies

In order to be fair to all our valued campers and parents, no exceptions can be made to these policies: 

BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT

Non-Violent Behavior

Kids that tease, take things from other kids, use inappropriate language,  frequently disrespect/interrupt the instructor, or break things, will be asked to sit out until the end of the current activity.

Afterwards, they will be asked to think about what they did that caused them to sit out, advised that they need to make better choices and think before they speak and act in the future.  Additionally, they will be informed that if it happens a second time their parents will have to pick them up, and if it happens a third time they will not be allowed to return to our facility ever again.

The parent that picks the child up that day will be informed of the behavior.  If their child broke something, the parent will be asked to pay for the broken item.  

If the behavior continues for a second day, the parent will be called while their child is sitting out and asked to pick him or her up. 

If the behavior continues for a third day, the parent will be called while their child is sitting out, asked to pick him or her up, and informed that their child is not allowed to return to our facility.  NO REFUND will be issued for the remainder of that week or subsequent weeks that they are signed up for.

Violent Behavior

We have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for violent behavior.  If a kid hurts another kid in any way, they will be asked to sit aside and wait as we call their parent who will then be informed that their child must be picked up immediately and is not allowed to return to our facility.  NO REFUND will be issued for the remainder of that week or subsequent weeks that they are signed up for.

CANCELLATIONS

Included in the price of a camp is a $100 non-refundable deposit. If canceling, payment refunds (minus the non-refundable deposit) can be made up to 7 days before the start of a camp.  After that time, no refunds can be made.  

CHANGES

Activities and materials may vary from those advertised if we are unable to procure certain items. We reserve the right to cancel or modify such activities and materials.

CONTACT INFORMATION

It is the responsibility of the primary family member to ensure that The Scholar Ship has the most up-to-date contact and emergency information.

DEPOSITS

Included in the price of a camp is a $100 non-refundable deposit.  

EARLY DROP OFF / LATE PICKUP FEE

If a Parent/Caregiver arrives before 9am or after 4pm, they will be assessed a fee of $7 for that day, per child, payable at the end of the day.

FOOD ALLERGY AWARENESS

The Scholar Ship recognizes that many children suffer from life-threatening peanut allergies. In the interest of minimizing the risk to our little customers, we ask that you please not bring peanuts, nuts or foods containing nut ingredients onto the premises.

The Scholar Ship does not have an EpiPen onsite.  We will temporarily store one for the day IF it is accompanied with specific instructions, provided by a medical professional, on when and how to administer it.

LUNCH FEE

If a Parent/Caregiver drops off a child without a lunch, they will be assessed a fee of $5 for that day, per child, to compensate for the lunch that gets delivered to them, payable at end of the day.  Paid lunches are never made onsite, they are pre-arranged deliveries from local establishments like Subway and Wendy's. 

MAKEUPS

There are no makeups for missed Camp days because the activities in our camps are different each day.

    REFUNDS

    Included in the price of camps is a $100 non-refundable deposit. If canceling, payment refunds (minus the non-refundable deposit) can be made up to 7 days before the start of a camp.  After that time, no refunds can be made.  

    SICK KIDS

    We reserve the right to send home any child with a fever or who otherwise appears to be infectious (e.g., vomiting, diarrhea, lice, frequent coughing or sneezing).

    TRANSFERS

    If you need to transfer to a different camp, that can be done only if the start of the camp that you originally signed up for is 7 days or more away and there is a spot available in the different camp.  If that is not the case, then no transfers can be made.
