1. RESERVATIONS: Once you have selected your camp date and location and have an estimated number of students who will attend, you may make reservations by calling the USA office. Your final numbers will be confirmed when you have submitted your Enrollment Form and per person deposit. 2. REGISTRATION: Complete the attached Enrollment Form. The form may be duplicated for additional names. Send one enrollment form per team/squad (include all participants and non-participants). A $50.00 per person registration deposit must be sent with the Enrollment Form. The $50.00 non-refundable deposit secures your place in the camp and is applied to the total camp fee. Full payment may be sent with the Enrollment Form if desired. (Please see below for detailed information regarding payments) 3. The “On Campus” fee includes all housing, meals and instruction. The “Commuter” fee includes instruction only. (Meals may be purchased for “commuters” on a per meal basis at most facilities – contact the USA office for more information). The “Non-Participant” fee includes housing and meals. Due to contractual obligations with host facilities, camp fees will be charged to all attendees regardless of age or participation. Adults may also audit student classes and attend director’s workshops. Participants must be at least 10 years of age to attend a Jr. High Camp; and at least 12 years of age to attend a High School Camp. 4. Once the USA office has received your enrollment form and per person deposit, a camp packet including medical release and waiver forms (please do not fax or mail these forms into the USA office), an invoice for each team/squad (i.e.: Varsity, JV, or Freshman; per program) reflecting the final numbers submitted on your Enrollment Form, and additional camp information will be mailed to the person designated to receive correspondence. 5. PAYMENT INFO: Payment can be made by credit card, school or cashier’s check, money order or school purchase order. Personal or organizational checks are not accepted. Make all payments payable to “USA Summer Camps.” Please no cash, personal checks, or payments made by individuals. A $20.00 fee will be assessed for each returned check. If you are paying with a purchase order, it should be written for the entire camp balance and submitted with a completed Enrollment Form. Make sure the school name appears on the purchase order. Teams submitting purchase orders without a completed enrollment form will not be registered. As an added convenience, payment can be made with MasterCard, VISA, Discover or American Express. For deposit paid by credit card, use the space for credit card authorization on the Enrollment Form. THE BALANCE OF THE CAMP FEE IS DUE AND MUST BE RECEIVED IN THE USA OFFICE THREE WEEKS PRIOR TO THE CAMP OPENING DATE. ANY REGISTRATIONS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN PAID IN FULL AFTER THIS DATE WILL BE SUBJECT TO CANCELLATION AND ANY ASSOCIATED DEPOSIT PAID WILL BE FORFEITED. PAYMENTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AT CAMP . 6. CANCELLATION/ADD/CHANGE POLICY: Any changes/cancellations after your Enrollment Form has been processed will need to be submitted in writing to the USA office. All payments, except the $50.00 per person deposit, are fully refundable if written notice of cancellation is received in the USA office at least 14 days prior to your camp opening. If you do not receive an invoice confirmation reflecting your revised numbers within 48-hours of submission, please follow up with the USA Registration Department. CANCELLATIONS ARE OFFICIAL ONLY WHEN RECEIVED IN WRITING AND CONFIRMED BY THE USA OFFICE. USA will ONLY accept cancellations in writing. Because of facility deposits paid by USA, “no-shows” at camp or cancellations received less than 14 days prior to camp will not receive any type of refund AND WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FULL TUITION. Payments may be applied to substitutes; however, if there is no alternate person, the $50.00 deposit cannot be applied to the balance of those attending. Should a “no-show” individual at a camp have an outstanding balance (i.e.: unpaid school purchase order), FULL TUITION WILL STILL BE DUE for the individual even though she/he did not attend camp. 7. A SEPARATE REFUND REQUESTS FOR CANCELLATIONS RECEIVED IN WRITING AT LEAST 14 DAYS PRIOR TO THE CAMP OPENING DATE MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE USA OFFICE BY OCTOBER 1, 2008. AGAIN, THE REFUND REQUEST IS SEPARATE FROM THE CANCELLATION REQUEST. NO REFUND WILL BE ISSUED BEFORE THE END OF CAMP OR AFTER DECEMBER 31, 2008. ROOM ASSIGNMENTS: Room assignments will be made by the team representative upon arrival at camp. To expedite this process, please prepare your own rooming list (two to a room at most locations) and bring it to camp. FULL CAMPS: Many USA camps fill to capacity. If bed space is not available when you register, you will be notified immediately regarding alternate camp dates. CAMP CHAPERONE: Each school is required to bring at least one adult chaperone that is over 21 years of age. NEW! The camp chaperone fee is $125.00 and is limited to one per school/organization. Chaperone responsibilities primarily involve assisting and supervising students at night. Chaperones are assigned to areas with their own students; however, they may be asked to oversee students from other teams. Any additional adults (directors, coaches, etc.) should register on the Enrollment Form and pay the “Non-Participant” fee. NEW! COMMUTING COACHES/ADVISORS FEE: Commuting teams may register one (1) coach/advisor to attend camp at no cost. Any additional coach/advisor may attend at the rate of $25.00 per person. Please be sure to list all commuting adults on the Enrollment Form.
