CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS:

iSPACE wants as many kids as possible to have the opportunity to attend our camps. However, we know that the cost of camp can be a burden for some families. The iSPACE Camp Scholarship Fund exists to help students attend an iSPACE camp. Camp Scholarship awards are based on financial need and demand for camp is high; therefore, qualifying for a scholarship does not guarantee a camp scholarship award, or a spot in summer camp. This program allows one camp scholarship per child per summer. However, if a family has more than one child, applications can be submitted for each child.

CANCELLATION POLICY:

CAMPER CANCELLATIONS/REFUNDS:
Request for cancellation/refunds must be received at least four weeks prior to the camp session start date regardless of the registration date. Cancellation requests are subject to a $50 cancellation fee per camp. Cancellations within four weeks of the camp session start date will not result in refunds unless accompanied by written doctor's orders verifying illness or injury. Camper tuition is not discounted when campers arrive late or leave early as expenses are contracted for the season and enrollment is limited.

CANCELLATION OF CAMP SESSION: iSPACE reserves the right to cancel any camp session and after-camp session that does not meet the minimum registration requirements. If this is necessary parents will be contacted at least four weeks prior to the beginning of camp and fees will be refunded in full.
