Registration is on a first come, first served basis for all programs. Many programs fill quickly and therefore, we recommend registering as early as possible. You will register according to your child’s “rising grade” meaning the grade your child will be entering in the 2024-25 school year. A non-refundable and non-transferable registration fee of $20 per camper is required at the time of registration. The registration and program fees are payable by credit card or ACH only. Pay-in-full is accepted at the time of registration or you may select our Installment Plan. All balances must be paid in full by May 1st or your registration will be cancelled for any unpaid camps. If you register after May 1st, full payment is required at the time of registration. Registration closes on Monday at 6pm for the following week’s camp session and new registrations or schedule changes will not be accepted after this deadline. ACH denials / errors will incur a $35 fee per occurrence. There is no proration for absences or conflicts due to schedule, vacation, or other activities.

Installment Payment Plan

You may select the Installment Plan to divide your course fees total over three equal payments. Payment due dates are March 1, April 1 and May 1. Credit card or ACH payments will automatically be processed on the due dates. All balances must be paid in full by May 1st or your registration will be cancelled for any unpaid camps.

Waiting Lists

All programs have an enrollment maximum for safety and appropriate ratios. Once a program fills, a waitlist for that program begins through the online registration system. Please be aware that we do have programs that have met their maximums and will be showing as waitlisted. If the waitlist for a program has also been filled, it will say "FULL" in red text, and you will not be able to add this to your cart. We do encourage you to register for the waitlist when possible as we will see things move and shift from February-May. If there is a second-choice program with availability, you can sign up for that while also selecting the waitlist for your first-choice program. There is no course fee required to register for a waitlist. You will be notified via email if a space becomes available in your waitlisted class. You will have 24 hours to accept the open spot and make payment arrangements including the $20 registration fee if not already paid. Once the 24-hour window has expired, we will move to the next person on the waitlist. Waiting lists will close on May 15th and openings will not be filled beyond that date with the exception of extenuating circumstances.

Fees, Changes, Cancellations, Refunds and Deadline Policy

All camps have a minimum enrollment that must be met in order to run. Therefore, we must adhere to the following policy regarding cancellations. Please understand that after the deadline listed below, we have made firm financial commitments to our faculty and staff, in addition to purchasing materials for the class. The $20 per camper registration fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. The cancellation deadline is May 1, 2024. Any changes or cancellations made prior to May 1st will incur no penalty and course fees will be refunded in full. There is no refund for cancellations after May 1st. We do not fill openings from waitlists for late cancellations received after May 1st. Changes made to schedules after May 1st will be charged a $25 non-refundable change fee per child plus any difference in course fees. All change requests and cancellations must be submitted in writing to and a cancellation confirmation received.

If a child is removed for disciplinary reasons, there will be no refund. Exceptions to the cancellation/ refund policy will be considered for medical reasons only and proper documentation from the child’s doctor is required. CA Summer Experience reserves the right to cancel any program due to low enrollment. We will make every effort to place your child into another available program. You will be notified via email with alternative camp options or to receive a full refund. 

Summer Experience 2024 Peace of Mind Policy

It is our hope that we will be able to run all of our Summer Experience programs as they were intended, but we have planned for possible contingencies if needed. If we should have to deviate from our original plans in any way, we want to make sure our families have options that are clear and easy to navigate. If any of our on-site programming is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, and we are not able to offer a virtual option, you will be refunded 100% of the camp fee. If you have elected an on-site program and we are able to offer a virtual option, you will have 24 hours to decline the virtual option and will be refunded 100% of the camp fee. In the event of any cancellation, the $20 registration fee is non-refundable.
