Tuition and Deposits

All registrations take place online, and spaces (particularly for specialty and limited enrollment camps) are given on a first-come, first-served basis in the order they are received.

There is a $200 deposit/camper which is paid online with a credit card. This deposit will be applied to your Camp balance. You will receive an email confirmation upon completion of your online registration.

There is a 10% sibling discount for second and subsequent siblings. The discount will apply to the lowest camp price.

To pay your tuition balance: sign in to your account. Click on the button to view your registration details, and in the bottom right hand corner of that page, click on the  "Make a Payment" button. If you do not see this button, it means that your account is fully paid.

Cancellation Policy

Once your registration has been processed, any reduction or cancellation of enrollment will cause the deposit to be forfeited. After June 17, 2024, no part of the tuition will be canceled or refunded in the event of any absence, withdrawal, or dismissal from the program. This applies to all camp programs, including Extended Day and transportation. However, you may sign up for our Tuition Refund Plan (TRP), at a cost of $10 per camper per week. The plan pays part of the unused tuition for the number of consecutive days missed, if that number is greater than four. Tuition will be reimbursed as follows:

  • Medical absence or withdrawal (requires a physician’s note): 75%
  • Non-medical (voluntary) withdrawal: 60%
  • Dismissal: 60%

To request a refund from the plan, you must apply in writing to the Camp Office, indicating the days missed, and the reason for your child’s absence. Families can choose to participate in the TRP or not. During registration you will be asked to fill out a form indicating your choice, and if you choose to participate you will be sent an updated invoice.

Health Requirements

Medical information must be provided for your child to attend camp. It is essential for the camp to have your child's current health information in order to be able to ensure the safety and well-being of campers during their time at camp. Please upload your child's complete physical and immunization record from your doctor's office by going to your home page after completing your registration and clicking the upload button under the "Doctor's Physical" section. If you cannot upload the document, please email it to Campers cannot participate in camp until we receive this form. The physical exam date must be within 18 months prior to when your child is expected to attend Camp Thayer.

Medical forms must be completed and submitted on or before June 1, 2024.
