Payment Policy

Early Registration Discount Register for camp by April 15th to save $25. If after April 15th, camp fees increase by $25. Cougar Cub Camp FEES are due in advance of service; therefore all balances must be paid at the day of registration. To receive the CRWC member rate, parents must be a member of the facility prior to signing their camper up for camp. Parents who have registered and paid their fees, then become members, are not entitled to a refund of the difference.

There is a “Sibling Discount” of 10% that applies when both children are attending the same week of camp.

Full Payment is due at the time of registration. We would prefer registrations/payments for future weeks to be made by the Wednesday prior to the start of the next camp week. Until the payment is made, your child is not guaranteed a spot.

Membership Discount To receive the camp discount the membership needs to extend through the entire camp season. What that means is, you have to have a current membership when you submit the registration for payment, as well as have a current membership through the 8 weeks of camps too. We have two options for membership: pre-pay and payroll deduction. With pre-pay you can purchase an annual membership for $321, semester membership for $150, or monthly for $80. If you cancel the pre-pay annual membership before the 12 months are up, you will not receive a refund. With payroll deduction, you can purchase an annual membership for $348. If you cancel the payroll deduction membership before the 12 months are up, you will be charged a $100 cancellation fee.
