COVID-19 Guidelines and Policies:
Guidelines include requiring masks, daily health screenings, small group sizes, frequent disinfecting, and socially distanced activities. See our COVID-19 Camper Guidelines.
Winter program attendees are grouped by age and siblings, depending on preference. For example, K-2 are together, but if there is a sibling in 3rd grade, they will be kept with their sibling unless parent approval is given to split them up. Grades 3-5 in another group (depending on enrollment).
Your child's Mountain Top group is considered a cohort by Public Health. If there are any exclusions or outbreaks, your child's cohort will be considered.
If your child misses camp within the 7 day cancellation policy due to school closures or COVID-19 precautions, your account will be credited for the missed day. No refunds are available within 1 week of the cancellation; our 1 week full refund cancellation policy remains in place.
