Terms and Conditions

Cancelation Policy

If you must cancel a camp registration, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer your spot to another family. For all cancelations, the $50 registration fee is non-refundable. In addition, for cancelations made less than two weeks before the start of a camp session, no amount of the payment will be refunded.

Inclusion Policy

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society (PVAS) does not exclude, deny benefits to, or otherwise discriminate against any service recipient, applicant, program staff, or the public on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, age, sex, political affiliation, or religion.

Behavior Policy

Inappropriate behavior will not be accepted or tolerated from any camper at the Audubon Discovery Camp. Inappropriate behavior includes but is not limited to foul language, hurting or teasing other campers and/or animals, disrespecting or threatening a counselor/director/volunteer/camper, wandering away from the group, fighting, and/or destroying camp equipment.

Discipline Policy

  1. On a camper’s first offense, a camper will receive a warning from the counselor.
  2. On the second offense, the camper will be given a time-out and/or be restricted from participating in the current activity. The counselor will discuss with the camper what he/she did wrong and allow them to reflect on the situation. The camp director will also be notified about this offense. The parent will be notified of the incident at the end of the day.
  3. On the third offense, or if the camper refuses to cooperate in time-out, the camper will be sent to the camp director, and the incident will be recorded. In addition, a note will be sent home that must be signed by a parent.
  4. On the fourth offense, the camper’s parents will be called to immediately come and pick up the child from camp. At that time it will be determined, based on the situation, if the camper will be allowed to return to camp. If the camper is dismissed from camp, no refund will be given.

Late Pick Up Policy

A $10/per child late fee will be assessed for every 15 minutes after 3:00 pm for those campers not yet picked up. 

Electronics

No electronic devices (cell phones, iPads, game consoles, etc.) are allowed to be used at camp by campers. If a camper is found using these items during camp: on first offense, the camp director will hold the item until the end of the day and it will be returned directly to the parent; a second offense, the item will be confiscated until the end of the day and the camper's parent will be called; a third offense will result in camper being dismissed from camp without a refund. PVAS is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.

Release of Liability

Medical

If my child is taking a prescribed medication, I give permission for the staff designated by the camp director to administer prescription or over-the-counter drugs that my child must take while at camp. All medications must be in their original container and clearly marked with my child’s name.

In the event of an emergency, I understand that every effort will be made to contact the parent/guardian as soon as possible. In the event that neither I nor my emergency contact can be reached, I hereby give permission to the physician selected by the camp director to secure proper treatment, including x-rays, hospitalization, anesthesia, surgery or injections of medication for my child.

First Aid

I give permission for the staff designated by the camp director to administer basic first aid to a child in need of care. This includes but is not limited to: cleaning cuts, applying bandages, removing ticks, and applying icepacks. All injuries and administered first aid will be recorded and the parent will be notified upon pick-up. If my child is feeling ill or has an injury that the camp director feels I should be made aware of prior to pick up, I understand that I will be called and may be asked to pick up my child from camp.
