Summer Camp Refund
Camp Celtic arose from nothing. It exists because of a combination of inspiration, perspiration, dedication, and love. After 36 years, camp has been home to tens of thousands of campers and staff, and I like to think that every one of us is better for having been at Celtic.
Over that time, our family business has grown to employ 7 year-round employees, 6 permanent seasonal employees, and over 100 counsellors and coaches. Our summer camps sessions have become full, vibrant examples of what we envisioned so many years ago. We host school groups during the months of May, June, and September...and we work the rest of the year maintaining, repairing, and improving our facility, as well as taking care of all aspects of our enterprise.
Although a downturn in the economy, or an unforeseen business challenge was always a possibility, we did not contemplate being shut down as completely as has transpired. There is a chance that, come July, overnight camps may be the only private Ontario businesses that are still mandated to be closed. Time will tell...
We want to reiterate our commitment to our camp families that we will do our best to accommodate your wishes, with respect to refunds of camp fees.
In order to proceed as efficiently as possible, we have launched this "de-registration" process. All refunds will be issued by e-transfer. Please enter an email address below that you'd like this transfer to go to.
There are few things we would like camp families to consider...
Our normal policy is a non-refundable $200 deposit. We have instead decided to allow the $200 to be credited towards future camp experiences, due to the unusual circumstances. This credit can be applied to the same camper, a sibling, even a friend!
Therefore, we will process a refund of whatever fees you have paid, less the aforementioned $200. ($100 in the case of Rookie Camp)
Families who are in a position to leave camp fees with us will not only have our heartfelt gratitude, but will be recognized in a number of ways...
- no increase in camp fees for 3 years
- commemoration in our Victory Orchard and Garden
- priority in choice of Session for 2021
There may be families who want to support camp in a more robust manner, or whose situation is so unusual as to warrant a refund of the $200 credit.
These families can communicate their ideas to us as well.
