Refunds and Session Changes
Camp Wekeela reserves the right in its discretion to cancel enrollment if it deems cancellation to be in the best interests of the Camp or of the camper. I realize that no environment is risk-free and I have instructed my child on the importance of abiding by the Camp’s rules. My child and I both agree that my child is familiar with these rules and will obey them. I understand and agree to abide by the applicable pricing as noted on the enclosed date and fee card. The Director reserves the right to withdraw any camper whose influence or actions are deemed unsatisfactory to the Camp or who will not live within the rules and policies of the Camp. I agree that, if such expulsion occurs, I will be entitled to no refund or reduction of fees. I agree that, if I do not pay the fees as spelled out in this agreement, and according to the terms hereof, and it becomes necessary for Camp Wekeela to seek collection, I will beresponsible for the payment of any additional costs for collection, including such reasonable legal fees and court costs as might be incurred. I also agree that, if MaineWekeelaCo, LLC, files any action against me arising out of this agreement, and if service of suit papers is made on me as hereafter provided, the courts of basic jurisdiction of Oxford County, Maine shall have personal jurisdiction over me, and Oxford County, Maine shall be a place or proper venue of any such action.
If I am served with legal papers by certified mail, return receipt requested, or if such service is attempted and refused, and legal papers are then sent to me through the ordinary United States mail, that will constitute valid personal service upon me so as to confer personal jurisdiction over me.
If you withdraw your child prior to Dec 15th, you will receive a full refund less a $500 administrative fee. There are no refunds after December 15th.
