To optimize the instructor to counselor ratio, we need to know how many registrants we have for each program at least 2 weeks ahead of time. This is why we ask that places in the camp are reserved with payment. If your holiday plans change and you would like to drop out of the camp, to obtain a full refund we ask for 30 days' notice. If you wish to change your dates or switch between Farm and Pony camps, we will charge you a 10% office fee. Cancellations between 14 days and 8 days before of start of camp will be refunded minus 10% office fee. No refunds for cancellations 7 days before start of camp.
