Our Policies

It is understood by registering that you have read and understood all of our policies.

 

COVID-19

We currently plan to be open and will be following strict CDC, Local, State and Federal guidelines so we have a safe and fun environment for everyone! 2022 will be a little different than our normal years so please make sure you read through these policies. This will be updated as things change from the CDC, local, state and federal Covid-19 policies.

​Face coverings are not required because we are 100% outdoors.  You are more than welcome to wear a mask.  Our counselors will always have new face masks with them for anyone that soiled their mask and needs a new one.

Drop off (8:30am) and pick up (12:30pm) will be at each activity site. We will not be transporting campers in our vans due to Covid-19.  We ask everyone to be patient and to keep a distance while checking in your child.  Once your child is checked in, we would like you to have your child wash their hands at our hand washing station.  After they wash their hands, we would like the parents to say goodbye and they can walk over and join the group. When you arrive to pick up your child up, staff will direct your child to walk over to you.

 

All equipment will be thoroughly disinfected daily.

We have had to change our inclement weather day due to Covid-19.  To stay 100% outdoors, if there is server weather, we may be forced to cancel or end the day early.  If a full day is canceled we will attempt to have a makeup day on the weekend. If the weather does not allow from the makeup day, unfortunately there will be no refund for the days cancelled.

MID-WEEK REGISTRATION OPTION 

Campers can register for the mid-week option if the camp session has spaces available. The earliest Martha's Vineyard Adventure Camp will consider campers for the mid-week option is a week prior to the start date of each camp session. There is a minimum requirement of three days.

CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS

If you decide to cancel prior to June 1, 2022, it will result in a $50 cancellation fee and the remainder will be refunded to you. There is no refund for cancellations made after June 1, 2021.

 

CAMP SESSION TRANSFERS

Camp session transfers are allowed up to two weeks prior to the start of your camp session. The earlier you transfer, the better chance you have of switching sessions due to high demand.  There is a $25 transfer fee.

 

TUITION REFUND

We do not give any refund for early withdrawal, late arrivals, missed days, illness, accidents, or dismissal.

 

BIKING DAY

All campers must be able to ride a bike without training wheels on pavement and on dirt. If your child cannot, they must skip biking day and there will be no partial refund for the day missed.

 

EXTENDED CARE

We need a minimum of 3 campers registered for extended care for it to run. In an event that we do not have 3 campers registered for extended care for any given week, we will refund the portion of extended care that was not offered. You must pick up your children at regular camper pick-up hours each day.

 

BEHAVIOR REGULATIONS

Safety is our number one priority at Martha's Vineyard Adventure Camp. It is important that campers wear helmets, life vests, seat belts, and all other safety equipment as advised by the staff. Violence, of any sort; disorderly conduct towards staff or campers, the use of alcohol, drugs, or tobacco products will not be permitted and will result in immediate dismissal from camp.

 

ITINERARIES

Our staff follows the camp itinerary but occasionally there is unpredictable weather, group dynamics or situations that we have to revise our itineraries. We may change site locations if necessary as well as provide appropriate alternative activities in such cases.

 

EQUIPMENT

Martha's Vineyard Adventure Camp provides all the necessary equipment. See the "What to Bring" list for things your child should come to camp with.

 

FOOD AND DRINKS

Due to Covid-19, Martha's Vineyard Adventure Camp does not provide any food.   Please pack your child with a NUT FREE snack.   Please bring a water bottle to camp each day and we will continue to refill it throughout the day.

CAMP CANCELLATION OR TERMINATION 

Martha's Vineyard Adventure Camp reserves the right to cancel a camp session at any time. While this is unlikely to happen, in the event it does, tuition will be refunded in full. If it happens in the middle of a camp session, Martha's Vineyard Adventure Camp will try to make up the canceled day over the weekend.  If the weather does not allow for a make up day, unfortunately their will be no refund for canceled days due to weather. 

 

CELL PHONES & ELECTRONICS 

We designed our camp to allow the campers to experience the natural environment without cell phones or any other electronics such as iPads, or any other valuable items. They can be lost or damaged due to the nature of our camp. Please refrain from allowing your children to bring these items to camp. Martha's Vineyard Adventure Camp is not responsible for any lost or damaged electronic devices.  We highly recommend NOT sending your camper to camp with any electronics.
