We hold camp regardless of weather conditions. If there is inclement weather we have activities in a sheltered area. Summer camp is conducted during hurricane season; if we are forced to close due to hurricane conditions, there will be no refund. If the center is closed for something unforeseen, we will contact each parent/guardian with the phone number or email address provided.

We offer various exciting activities for our campers. However, we cannot always guarantee that your child will enjoy our program. If your child does not like camp for any reason, please contact the Camp Director as soon as possible.
Remember: The objective of camp is to get wet, go sailing and have fun.

In order to provide a positive experience for all of our campers, the camp reserves the right to dismiss campers whose behavior, in the opinion of the Camp Director, is detrimental to the camp community. A parent/guardian will be notified of any problems in camp before dismissal occurs and the problem may be resolved with possible suspension only. If the Camp Director feels that this is not possible due to circumstances, then immediate dismissal may result. It will be the parent’s responsibility to pick up the child. There will be NO REFUNDS for dismissal. A behavior report will be filed at CCSC.

It is your responsibility to repair or replace any damage of program equipment that is attributed to your child’s reckless or irresponsible behavior.

We make every effort to adhere to the planned activities, activity locations, and schedules. Sometimes, however, events beyond our control necessitate changes, which cannot be predicted beforehand. Accordingly, the camp reserves the right to make activity, staff, and program location changes at its discretion without limitation or prior notice. There will be no refunds, credits, or tuition reductions should any such change(s) occur.

To receive a full refund, written notification MUST be submitted at least two weeks prior to the camp start date. Cancellations within 5 to 13 days prior to the program will receive a partial refund of 50% of the total cost. Cancellations 0-4 days prior to the program will NOT receive a refund. Camp reservation dates are transferable with a $25.00 fee per change per child. If you need to transfer your child’s camp session, we cannot guarantee a space will be available on another date. To change any reservation please email or contact the front office (727) 517-7776. No other refunds will be issued and we are not able to reschedule missed days.

NO rescheduling missed days under any circumstances. Although we make every effort to accommodate absent campers, we do not make up missed days.
