Frequently Asked Questions
Guarantee/Refund Policy: Our goal is to meet or exceed your expectations. Tell us if we fall short in any way. If we can't fix it on the spot, we will refund you for the remainder of the session.
What if our plans change? I ask that you treat us fairly. We are a small family business. Try to let us know as soon as possible. It is a lot easier to fill spots in March than in June. If you are having a great time at the lake and want to stay another week but will miss summer camp. That feels like a different thing. We can see if there are any other openings later in the summer or people on a waiting list. You could hold the registration until next year, or give the spot to a friend. But I'm not gonna feel like that last-minute choice should come at our expense.
That said, sometimes things just come up in family life. If you suddenly have to fly to a funeral, you have more important things to think about than summer camp. Do you want a refund or a rain check? Whatever causes the lease stress that is what we will do. See exceptions below.
Exceptions to our Guarantee/Refund Policy.
