Peace of Mind Policy
WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?
If you have to cancel, for any reason, we will issue you a VOUCHER for all tuition fees paid, valid through the following calendar year. Your VOUCHER is transferable to any family member and may be used in the sport that you initially registered in. Refunds will be given only with the purchase of Cancellation Protection (see terms below).
Fees are not pro-rated due to vacations or absences of any kind. Participants who leave early during their session or do not attend their registered session are not eligible for a refund or voucher.
US Sports Camps offers our camp families Cancellation Protection for $50 per session, due at the time of registration. Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of your camp tuition fees paid to date (Please note: $50 Cancellation Protection and Registration fee are non-refundable.) if you cancel for any reason before your final payment date (the first day of the month prior to the month your camp begins, i.e. final pay date of May 1st for any camp in your sport beginning in the month of June).
With Cancellation Protection, if you cancel after your final payment due date, we will issue you a camp voucher for your tuition payments made. Your camp voucher will be transferable to an immediate family member and can be used for the sport in which you were registered. For camps running in 2018, camp vouchers are valid through 2019.
CANCELLATION BY US SPORTS CAMPS
In the unlikely event that SI Summer Programs or US Sports Camps cancels your camp session, we will refund only your camp tuition and registration fee. Camper waives any and all damages that may otherwise arise out of any camp cancellation and agrees to accept as liquidated damages said registration fees.
