Additional Expenses:

Tuition Assurance Program: This optional program helps you to protect your investment with an additional $300 fee is charged at time of registration. Learn more!

Canteen (Camp Store) Account:  Campers have the option of purchasing clothing, forgotten items, and other camp items while at camp.  The afternoon snack of a candy bar, ice cream or health snack is part of the tuition and not charged to this account. We recommend $125 per session and parents need to fund this by going to CampInTouch, to “View Canteen Account” to deposit money, view what your camper has purchased, and view items available. Additional funds can be added to this account while your camper is at camp. Campers can minimally overdraw from their accounts as we would not want to deny them purchasing a replacement for their lost water bottle

*Any unspent funds are refunded with the final camp invoice in September; any overages will be billed at that time.  Please fund this account 2 weeks prior to the start of camp.

Bus Travel: The cost of the bus each way is $45.00 including lunch or a snack.  Bus fees will be charged to your credit card on file upon completion of the Travel Form.  See Travel for more details.  

Rental:  Campers have the option of renting linens, blankets, pillows, sleeping bags and lifejackets for minimal fees.  The fee for everything is $60.00. Appropriate rental fees will be charged to your credit card on file.

Optional  Programs and Expenses:  There are opportunities that are known or unknown where our campers with parental permission can participate such as a 5K running race or Flyboarding or where additional expenses occur such as a charge for prescription medications or baggage and UM fees paid on behalf of your camper.  The actual fee is charged to your credit card on file. 

 

TAP is an OPTIONAL, complete protection for your camp tuition. Camp Foley is pleased to offer a program that protects your camp investment if you find it necessary to cancel for ANY reason prior to the start of camp. The Tuition Assurance Program (TAP) is optional and must be selected and paid for at the time you enroll your child for camp. The TAP Fee is non-refundable and costs $300/3 week session (you will also need to pay the $500 registration deposit at the time of registration).

What if… Your child is sick or injured or is unable to attend camp for ANY reason?

  • Or if… Your child receives a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity for next summer, or simply decides to try something different?
  • Or if… A family emergency or personal financial situation makes it imprudent or impossible for your child to go to camp?
  • Or if… Your child decides he or she is not ready to attend overnight camp this summer?

Is TAP the same thing as Trip Cancellation Insurance? No. Insurance programs only protect you in the event of specific insured situations (medical emergency, death in the family, loss of job, etc.) and typically have a deductible. With the TAP you can cancel for any reason and 100% of your payments are protected. TAP is more accurately described as a Cancellation Fee Waiver Program, whereby you receive different cancellation options if you sign up for the program. It’s more like buying an unrestricted airline ticket as opposed to a non-refundable ticket or one that has penalties attached to changes. 

Are my payments really protected if my child cancels without a good reason? Yes. You do not need to give a reason to cancel under the TAP. The only requirement is that you send us a written cancellation before camp starts. Depending on when you cancel, a portion of your payments will be retained as a credit for a future camp session for your child or a sibling, and the remainder will be refunded.

Why would I choose TAP? With TAP you can cancel for any reason and 100% of your payments are protected, including the Non-Refundable Application Fee. In addition, if your child needs to leave camp early, the unused portion of your camp fee will be retained as a credit that can be used toward tuition another summer or transferred to an immediate family member. 

Can I sign up for TAP at any time? No. You MUST sign up and pay for TAP at the same time you enroll your child. If you do not sign up for the TAP and find it necessary to cancel, you will be subject to the standard cancellation policy outlined during registration.

I rolled money over from last year so therefore have already paid my deposit, how do I sign up for the TAP? When you fill out the official registration form to register your camper for 2021, you will be given the option to join the program. The $300 fee/3 week session would be due then if you opt in to the program.

If Foley cannot operate for the summer of 2021, what is the cancellation fee? One of the biggest reasons we started this program is to protect both you and us in the event that we are unable to operate next summer due to COVID-19. Cancellation fees and schedule will be the same as the chart below.

Will I get 100% of my money back if I enroll in TAP and need to cancel? The TAP Fee ($300/3 week session) is non-refundable. The rest of the money will be refunded or saved as credit for the future. See the chart below. Additionally, should your camper have to depart for medical reasons or is dismissed early, the remaining prorated balance will be credited to a future session.
