    Cancellation, Insurance, and Free Before-Camp and After-Camp Care

    Cancellation and Withdrawal We recognize that sometimes summer plans change unexpectedly. However, because the school must purchase materials and incur oth- er expenses in preparation for these camps, any student who with- draws from Lakehill Summer Camps after the registration deadline may be subject to a 50% cancellation fee (equal to forfei- ture of the deposit). Refunds (minus the cancellation fee) will be available within 30 days of the date of cancellation.

    In the event that a camp must be cancelled due to insufficient enrollment or other unforeseen circumstances, the complete registration fee will be promptly refunded. There will be no prorated registration fees or refunds for camp days missed.


    FREE Before- and After-Camp Care FREE before-camp care from 8:00—9:00 a.m. is available to students attending a morning or full-day camp, while FREE after-camp care from 4:00—6:00 p.m. is available to campers attending afternoon or full-day camps. Students will participate in a variety of activities which could include board games, outdoor games, card games, and crafts. Students should dress for indoor/outdoor play. NOTE: After 6:00 p.m., a late charge will be assessed and collected at the rate of $1.00 per minute, payable upon arrival. The same rate will apply for morning campers not enrolled in afternoon camp who are not picked up by 1:00 p.m.
