Commitment & Cancellation Agreement

In order to register for a program at Camp Collins both the Camper and the Parent/Guardian must read, agree to, and sign our Commitment and Cancellation Agreements. Below you will find the Camper and Parent/Guardian Agreements for our various programs. These agreements are listed on the Registration Forms of all programs.

Parent / Guardian Commitment and Cancellation Agreement

I understand it is the camper’s responsibility to participate in the whole camp program, including work, play, values sharing and living together. I have discussed with my camper that he or she may not possess or use tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, weapons of any kind, or non-prescription drugs while at camp. He or she will do his or her best to follow instructions, remain in designated areas and keep others and themselves safe. As well as do his or her best to make this a good experience for fellow campers and themselves. I understand that failure to live up to this promise might result in my camper’s dismissal from camp without a refund of fees.

Camp registration and cabin placement is on a first come-first serve basis and placement in a cabin is not guaranteed. Camp Collins strives to provide a camp opportunity to as many campers as possible and in so doing Explorer or Questor campers may be placed in one of our overflow yurts based on latest registration date (Please see Handbook for greater detail).

Included here is the required $50 deposit; I understand that the deposit is nonrefundable. I agree to pay the remaining balance of the camp fee in full no later than June 3, 2019. A space will not be held past June 3rd without full payment. If I register after June 3, 2019 I understand that payment in full is required to complete my camper’s registration. I understand that after June 3rd, 50% of the total camp fee is refundable three weeks prior to the start of my child’s session. Transferring my child to another session of camp is allowed provided space is available and a written request is received at least three weeks prior to the start of their original session. I understand that no refunds are given if a child leaves camp early for any reason, drops within three weeks of their session start date, or does not show up on the first day of camp.
