The weekly Field Camp fees (which includes everything such as the annual tee shirt, daily lunches, shuttle rides, overnights and overnight meals) are $625/week for 1-2 weeks, $575/week for 3-4 weeks, and $525/week for 5+ weeks.  For Camp Poplar, the fee is $1,200 for the one-week session and $2,500 for the two-week session. A $25 per week discount is provided for all registrations prior to April 15th.  You can hold spaces for the summer by making a deposit (the deposit will be credited toward the last week’s fee).  The Adventure Weeks have the same fees as Field Camp with an additional $100/week.  

Cancellation and Change Policy:   We have flexibility about changing weeks of attendance prior to April 15th and as long as weeks are not full.  After April 15th, however, we often cannot honor change requests.   In the event of a family’s change of plans after April 15th, partial refunds will be made up to 2 weeks prior to planned attendance. If requesting more than 4 weeks prior to attendance, a fee of $100 will apply per week cancelled, and in the event of refund requests between 2 and 4 weeks prior to attendance, a $300 fee per week will apply. We do not maintain formal wait lists (our experience has been that families generally make alternative plans rather than utilizing wait lists), though we do our best to accommodate all families.

My child has permission to travel in camp-approved transportation and to participate in all activities, including swimming. I authorize the camp to provide or consent to emergency medical care or treatment of my child. I agree to pick up an ill child when notified. I understand that camp involves risks, and I agree not to hold Field Camp liable for injuries sustained during camp or charges incurred in medical treatments, whether covered by our insurance or not. I authorize the camp to use pictures of my child in promotional literature. I understand that I am responsible for payment of camp fees, that these are due in full by the Monday of each week of attendance, and that payment is required regardless if the child attends. Deposits are non-refundable, non-transferable, and will be applied to the last week of camp attendance. I acknowledge these policies and understand that this is a legal and binding agreement.
