Insurance

Eagle’s Nest requires all campers to be covered by medical and health insurance while attending Camp or Hante programs. We also highly encourage families to consider purchasing travel and tuition insurance.


Deposit for Camp and Hantes

All Camp and Hante Adventures require a $450 deposit of which $100 is non-refundable. Deposit is due with application submission to hold a space. $350 of the deposit is refundable until February 1st of the year attending Camp or Hante, unless otherwise specified for select (*) Hante Adventure and Junior Counselor (JC) applicants.


Select Hante Adventures Deposits and Refunds

Select Hante Adventures marked with an asterisk (*) have an application deadline of November 15th before the year attending Camp, with rolling acceptance beginning after November 15th. Select (*) Hante Adventures also have a 50% non-refundable deposit due upon acceptance into the program. The remaining tuition balance is due February 1st and is non-refundable. Due to the costs of running Select (*) Hantes, Early Bird discounts will not be offered to applicants applying to a Select (*) Hante.


Junior Counselors Deposits and Refunds

The Junior Counselor application deadline is October 15th before the year attending camp, with rolling acceptance beginning after October 15th. Junior Counselors have a 50% non-refundable tuition deposit due upon acceptance into the program. The remaining balance is due February 1st and is non-refundable.


Full Payment

Camp and Regular Hante payment is due in full by March 1st of the year attending camp or Hante. For any registrant after March 1st, tuition payment will be due in full three weeks after registration.  Families whose payments are returned for insufficient funds will be charged a $20 fee to cover bank and administrative fees.


Payment Plans

Payment plans are available for campers registering prior to April 1st.  Payment plans are set up in the form of a payment plan contract establishing monthly payments on specified dates.  Payment plan contracts are created by the camp registrar.  Late monthly payments on payment plans incur a $20 fee for the first two missed payments and withdrawal from camp for payments missed beyond two.


Refunds

After March 1st of the camp year, and prior to the beginning of the session the camper is registered to attend, there is no refund for early withdrawals, late arrivals, or no-shows. Eagle’s Nest Camp highly recommends the purchase of travel and tuition insurance.
