Kickoff Camp and Sessions A and B are limited to 130 boys and 130 girls, and Session C is limited to 140 boys and 140 girls. Additionally, Session C is only available for campers ages 8-16 (all other sessions are 6-16.) All 6 year old campers must have completed kindergarten. We suggest registering as soon as you make your final decision, as our sessions tend to fill quickly. Please call the camp office if we can help you in your decision process.
Through September 1st of each year, Camp Highlander gives priority registration to our returning camp families. On September 1st, we open registration up to all camp families, both returning and new. All new campers that apply before September 1st will be put on our waiting list until we open up enrollment to all families. At that time, we process all applications in the order received.
An online application, parent signature and $1,000 deposit are required upon enrollment. After March 15th, all camp fees are required to be paid at the time of enrollment. Please contact our camp office with any questions you may have regarding the application process.
If we receive your application after a particular session is full, we will place you on that session’s waiting list and confirm with you via email. At that time, we recommend enrolling your child in another open session while keeping them on the waiting list for their first-choice session. We usually see a few cancellations each year which means we do enroll campers from our waiting list each summer.
Camp Highlander offers an active military discount (5%), and alumni discount (5%). A sibling discount (5%) is also available for the second, third, and fourth child enrolled from the same family. These credits do not apply to our Family Sessions.
Applications must be submitted with a deposit of $1,000 by echeck or credit card. There is a 2.75% credit card recovery fee when using a credit card and a 1% recovery fee when using an echeck. All deposits are fully refundable until January 15th minus a $300 administrative fee per camper. Tuition payments, minus the $1,000 deposit, are refundable if written notice is received prior to March 15, 2024. There are no refunds, credits or transfers given for cancellations after March 15. We strictly adhere to this cancellation policy.
If applying between August and November 15th, the tuition payment will be split into three installments, one third due November 15, one third due January 15 and the final one third due on March 15.
If applying between November 16 and March 14, the $1,000 deposit and half of the remaining tuition is due with the application. All final payments are due March 15. For applications after March 15, the full tuition is due with the application.
There will be NO REFUND for cancellations, late arrivals or early departure from camp, including departure due to injury, illness or disciplinary dismissal of camper.
Camp Highlander is not able to provide refunds beyond the cancellation policy time period. We strongly urge all parents to purchase cancellation insurance to protect your investment in camp. Please consider the financial impact that cancellation would have on your family before deciding against purchasing the insurance. Please do not ask us to bend or break this policy or make special arrangements for your family.
Program Protector is a smart purchase given the many unforeseen circumstances that can arise before camp. Having this insurance to protect your camp investment is THE ONLY WAY to receive a refund outside of our cancellation policy due to annual budgeting and purchasing done after the March 15 deadline.
