COVID-19 Protocols:

The well-being of our camp participants and instructors is the most important factor in our decisions. The COVID-19 protocols for camps and programs are in place so that we can abide by all necessary health and safety requirements, while delivering a creative, enriching and exciting camp environment that sets free your spirit to learn and play through sport, academics, enrichment and discovery. We encourage you to review these protocols prior to registering for the St. David's Summer Academy.

Refunds:

Balances are due in full at time of registration. Refund requests must be submitted in writing (email) to Katherine Koslowsky at St. David’s School Camps and Programs by at least two weeks before the camp starts. All refunds, upon approval, will be assessed a $25 cancellation fee. No refunds will be allowed after May 30 for Summer Camps. Unforeseen hardship and medical concerns will be handled on an individual basis.

All summer camps require minimum enrollment. St. David’s reserves the right to cancel any camp due to under-enrollment or unforeseen circumstances.
