  • ENROLLMENT DEADLINE:  Two weeks prior to each camp start date

  • Limit of 36 students per week to create six “pods” of students by age group.

  • Students will be divided into pods of six students with one teacher and will remain with their pod for the entire week.

  • We regret that sibling discounts are not available at this time.

REFUNDS
  • Remember:  A space saved for your child is a space denied to another.

  • 100% refund if cancelation is made 10-14+ days prior to camp. 

  • 75% refund if cancelation is 5-9 days prior to camp. 

  • 50% refund 2-4 days prior to the first day of camp 

  • No refund offered less than 24-hours prior to camp, on the first day or after the camp begins.

  • All credit card enrollment must be processed through the TicketLeap site.

  1. If a camp is in progress, no refunds will be offered should we move online.

  2. If a camp is pending, families will be offered a 100% refund or the opportunity to pivot to online learning.

SAFETY GUIDELINES

To enroll and to attend TRYPS camp, we all agree that:

  • Only staff and students will be allowed outside of vehicles and onsite during drop off, camp hours, and pick up.

  • If a camper or family member is ill, you will stay home.

  • TRYPS staff and students will remain in masks unless specifically instructed otherwise.

  • Cloth or surgical masks (no neck gaiters, bandanas or scarves) must be worn to cover the mouth and nose.

  • TRYPS staff and students will adhere to social distancing.

  • Bathroom breaks will be scheduled to decrease crossover between pods. Restrooms will be wiped down and disinfected frequently during the day.

  • Hand sanitation stations will be available.

  • Campers who do not wish to comply to these safety guidelines should not enroll in camp and will be dismissed from camp for the safety of the TRYPS staff and students.
