Frequently Asked Questions
Register for Camp
How will I pay for Camp?
is there a deposit?
A deposit of $50 per session is required to complete the registration process for camp. Deposits cover administrative fees and are not refunded under any circumstance (unless camp application is declined by Crossroads).
when is my balance due?
The balance of camp fees (the cost of camp minus any deposits, financial assistance, or agency payments) is due 60 days prior to the opening of the session. If you register for camp after this time, the balance is due upon confirmation of registration. Failure to make this payment may result in the cancellation of registration. Please contact us for information on payment plans. Crossroads accepts credit/debit card payments (2.5% processing fee), money orders, cashier’s checks, and cash.
what is the refund and cancellation policy?
Cancellations made at least 60 days prior to the opening day of the session will receive a full refund minus any deposits or financial assistance. Refunds on the balance paid for sessions cancelled within 60 days of the session start date will only be granted for certified medical reasons. The refund will be less the required deposit. There are no refunds for not attending, late arrivals, or early departures. Deposits cover administrative fees and are not refunded under any circumstance (unless camp application is declined by Crossroads). Refunds for sessions that are cancelled during a session due to certified medical reasons will be prorated based on the number of days of camp attended.

We do not encourage visitation at any time during the sessions as the campers are busy with their own activities. The unannounced arrival of parents or visitors may cause unnecessary disruption such as homesickness or missed activities. Of course, if you believe it is absolutely necessary to make a visit you must first call ahead and set up an appointment with the camp director. When you arrive, you must check into the office. No camper will be allowed to leave camp or to be visited by anyone other than parents/legal guardians, unless written permission is granted and arrangements have been made with the director ahead of time.
Lost and Found
It can be inconvenient and disruptive for campers to place or receive telephone calls, so we do not typically encourage incoming or outgoing phone calls for campers, especially during the first week of camp. If you would like to check on your camper, or if you are worried about them, you are welcome to call and speak with leadership staff about their progress at any time. Any important messages can also be relayed through our leadership staff. We have found that this has led to more successful camp experiences for youth. Please be assured that we will contact you should any serious issues arise, and in emergencies we can arrange for you to speak to your child. For special occasions (such as birthdays), a phone call may be pre-arranged with leadership staff.
