At the time of registration, a $75 deposit will be charged for each session of camp. Deposits apply toward your camper(s) tuition.
When you register for camp sessions, you will have the option to pay for your sessions in full at the time of registration or enroll in our payment plans. Our payment plans are set up as automatic billing payments for your convenience. If you select this option, you will pay the $75 deposits for each session you selected at checkout and then you will be automatically billed your remaining balances 10 days prior to each session starting.

|$75 deposit due at time of registration||Remaining tuition auto-billed May 27|
This year we have automated our waitlist procedures. If a session is full, you will be placed on a waitlist at no cost. Once a spot is open for a program, an auto-email will be sent to your online account email address indicating that a spot has opened up. This email will indicate what participant the open spot is available for as well as dates, times, and names of the program. At that point, you will have 24 hours to accept your spot through the email that you received. If you choose not to claim the spot once you receive an email, you can elect to remove yourself from the waitlist at that time, and the next family on the list will be offered the open spot. If you do not accept the invitation in the given period, the next family on the list will be offered the open spot at that time. If time expires or you remove your camper from the waitlist, and you wish to be back on the waitlist again – you will need to sign up for the waitlist again and this will place you at the bottom of the list in the order you signed up.

*All Camps Week is a Kidventure tradition where each of our sites puts together a performance consisting of a chant and dance routine. When we field trip that week, all our sites come together and perform — with the winning site receiving the coveted Spirit Stick! After the performances, our sites participate in whatever activities we have set up for them. (Our campers are not required to participate in the competition, but we do encourage them to go outside of their comfort zones and challenge themselves to perform.)
Please note: Field Trips are subject to change due to weather and other circumstances
The most important factor in your child’s camp experience is the quality of their camp team. Without a doubt, we recruit, hire, train, and maintain the most qualified and talented staff anywhere.
