2020 Terms & Conditions
Rules and Regulations
The camper (Camper) and parent(s) (Parent) agree to abide by the Robin Hood Code of Conduct as established by Camp Robin Hood (Camp) including, without limitation, those relating to enrollment and withdrawal of campers and visitation.
Robin Hood Code of Conduct
The goal of Camp's administration is to provide each and every Camper with an extraordinary experience. To that end, we remind you of the expectations regarding behavior and decorum and ask that you carefully review these with your Camper prior to his/her arrival. At Camp, we pride ourselves on being inclusive of children and staff from many countries, cultures and walks of life. We try very hard to assure that children are not excluded by their peers, poked fun at for their abilities, or bullied in any way. Please remind your camper that he/she should arrive at camp with the intentions of being friendly with everyone in the group, participating in activities, exhibiting good manners, and having positive interactions with campers and staff.
If we find that a Camper is not able to abide by the behavioral regulations, immediate action will be taken by the counselor in charge. This action will be gentle and corrective in nature, with the intention of helping the camper understand the choice he/she made. If the initial corrective action does not prove to be effective, further action will be taken by the administration and may include conversation with an administrator, time spent away from activities or removal of the opportunity to participate in a group privilege. We have every confidence that each camper will put forth his or her best effort, although we do reserve the right to expel any camper that finds himself/herself unable to abide by Camp's Code of Conduct. This is in the best interest of our entire Robin Hood family.
Dismissal of Camper
Camp reserves the right to dismiss, in its sole discretion, any Camper whose condition, conduct, influence or behavior is deemed unsatisfactory or detrimental to the best interests of Camp or his/her fellow campers, or who violates camp rules and regulations, in which case no refunds will be made.
Late Arrival/Early Departure
No allowance or reduction in tuition will be made for late arrival or early departure of Camper without the Director's consent prior to the commencement of the camp season.
If tuition or fees are not paid in full for Camper, Parent will be liable for all costs of collection, including attorney's fees.
No refunds of deposits, tuition or fees will be made after April 1, 2020.
In order to protect Camp for future generations, as a result of binding commitments that the Camp must enter into in order to conduct camp with appropriate levels of staff and medical personnel and the cost of readying the Camp to open, no refunds will be given in the event of an Act of God, War, Terrorism, Civil Unrest, Pandemic, other matters beyond the control of the Camp, or any other non-personal situation that, in the Camp's sole judgment, could lead to significant cancellations that would have a negative financial impact on the future of Camp.
The cost of Covid-19 testing at camp and medical care provided by Camp nurse and doctor is included in the tuition. Parent grants Camp permission to utilize medical treatment (including dental and orthodonture) by providers situated outside of Camp should the Camp Director(s) deem such treatment necessary for Camper's well being. Should it be necessary for the well being of the Camper to use such outside medical care providers, all expenses incurred will be paid by using Parent credit card on file at time such expenses are incurred. Medical personnel, or a camp director, will attempt to contact a Parent before outside medical treatment is utilized.
Camp RX is the required source for all medications dispensed to campers. – If your camper arrives at camp with medication NOT cleared through Camp RX you will be charged a $250 stocking fee.
Permission to Participate
