2013 CAMPER REGISTRATION TERMS & CONDITIONS – Taylor Statten Camps
INSURANCE & FEES
Private Medical Insurance is mandatory for all campers attending our camps or canoe trips who are resident outside of Canada. Medical coverage should include General Practitioner and outpatient care (which is usually outside the scope of most standard travel insurance policies). Canadian residents who reside OUTSIDE the province of Ontario should also check with their Provincial or Territorial Health Provider that they are covered in Ontario; if in any doubt it is highly recommended that Private Medical Insurance is purchased while your child(ren) is in Ontario. Your attention is drawn to our clauses below that deal with your responsibility to pay for canoe trip evacuations and/or other medical fees.
Travel and Trip Cancellation Insurance is also highly recommended for all campers, and in particular for those enrolled on one of our special canoe trips. For those enrolled on one of our Quetico Canoe Trips, you are reminded that the last part of the trip is spent in the Canada/USA international boundary waters in the US state of Minnesota. Your Provincial Health Insurance plan will not likely cover your child(ren) in this respect. Travel insurance is available through many banks and insurance companies.
Please also ensure you have carefully read all enrolment agreement items below, including our procedures for cancellation and refunds.
Camp fees are all inclusive (riding, most supplies for arts and crafts, laundry, etc.), except for transportation, special canoe trips, items purchased at tuck, and taxes. These rates are for all campers including brothers and sisters. All fees are payable at par in Toronto in CANADIAN FUNDS on or before April 1, 2013. A Deposit Fee of $950.00 ($1500.00 for Quetico and Bisco Canoe Trips) must accompany each application.
We are pleased to offer credit card payments through Visa and Mastercard. This is the preferred method of payment for our families outside Canada and the United States. We DO NOT recommend using bank transfers as we have had difficulties in receiving money in a timely fashion. We also accept payment in Canadian funds drawn on a Canadian bank, Canadian and US Travellers cheques and US personal cheques. Our exchange rate is set monthly by the business office. Please check with the office when writing cheques close to the end of the month. Do not send a non-Canadian cheque marked “PAYABLE IN CANADIAN FUNDS”, as it is not negotiable at any Canadian bank.
All camper applications will be considered on a first come, first serve basis, depending on the availability of space. The process for assigning special canoe trip requests (Quetico, Bisco, Kipawa) will begin January 15, 2013.
CONDITIONS OF ENROLMENT, CANCELLATION, & REFUNDS
The following shall apply to all enrollments and fees:
1. The Taylor Statten Camps makes every effort to place campers in cabin/canoe trip groupings with their friends they request. The camp offers three cabin mate preferences (we cannot consider more). We ask for your cooperation and trust in our ability to place your child in a positive and cohesive cabin group. Annual progression through our camper sections at Ahmek & Wapomeo is based on a complicated formula, at the full discretion of our Camp Directors, consisting of age of the camper, the age of other enrolled campers and overall enrollment, session length, and previous camp experience. There is no guarantee of a cabin placement, specified cabin mates, or placement in a particular camper section, regardless of any request you may make. We do not accept registrations that are contingent on cabin grouping requests. Cabin mate dis-requests will not be accepted.
3. The parents or guardians listed on the front of this application (referred to in this agreement as the parents) agree to pay the full fee by April 1, 2013 and to pay interest on all overdue fees at the rate of 24% per annum determined daily, calculated and payable monthly not in advance.
4. Any cancellation of enrolment must be in writing. Emails are accepted. The Camp reserves the right to cancel enrollment if fees are not paid in full by April 1, 2013. No refunds shall be made except strictly as follows:
a) if the application is withdrawn before its acceptance or if enrolment is cancelled on or before April 1, 2013, the fee deposit less a $400 administration fee will be refunded;
b) if enrolment is cancelled after April 1, 2013 but on or before May 15, 2013, the fee deposit will not be refunded but all other fees then paid will be refunded; and
c) if enrolment is cancelled for any reason after May 15, 2013, no amount will be refunded and any unpaid part of the full fee shall be payable.
5. Your camper’s enrolment may, at the parents’ request, be changed from a July month session to an August month session (or vice-versa), a July two week session to an August two week session (or vice-versa), accommodations permitting, at any time upon payment of a $100.00 switch fee. If a Full Session enrolment is changed to the July or August session, or if the camper is re-enrolled after a previous cancellation, a $300.00 administration fee will be charged. For a reduction in enrollment from a one month to a two week session, or if the camper is re-enrolled after a previous cancellation, a $200 administration fee will be charged. For a reduction in enrollment from a two week session to a Try Out session, a $100 administration fee will be charged.
6. No fee refund will be made for campers arriving late or leaving early, for any reason.
7. No refunds will be given to campers who are sent home due to any violation of the Taylor Statten Camps Code of Conduct, as determined by the Camp Directors, in their sole discretion.
1. The parents acknowledge that camp takes place in Ontario, submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Ontario courts and agree that:
a) the Ontario courts shall have jurisdiction over any claim, legal dispute or cause of action arising out of camp, alleged breach of contract, or alleged negligence or other claim that leads to a legal proceeding against The Taylor Statten Camp Company, Limited, its directors, officers or employees.
b) if any such legal proceedings are commenced, they will be commenced and heard only in Ontario; and
c) the resolution of all disputes and the provisions of this agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with Ontario laws.
2. The parent agrees to update the camp of any camp/school issues, (suspension, discipline) or social, emotional, or psychological issue that could affect his/her child or any other child, prior to camp. The parent further acknowledges that attendance and/or participation at camp involves risk and hazards incidental thereto, including allergic reactions, all of which are assumed by the parent. The parent hereby waives, releases, absolves and agrees to indemnify and save harmless The Taylor Statten Camp Company Ltd. and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents of any and all liability arising from his/her child’s attendance and/or participation of the camp program (unless solely as a result of the camp’s willful neglect or willful default.)
3. The parents of the camper consent to the medical treatment of the camper by the camp doctor or any other medical doctor, as required in such doctor’s discretion, and agree to pay all hospital and other medical fees and expenses incurred with respect to the camper and to reimburse the camp promptly for any such fees and expenses paid by the camp with respect to the camper.
5. The parents of the camper agree for and on behalf of themselves and the camper that any photographs taken of the camper by camp personnel or otherwise authorized by a camp director may be used by the camp without charge in promotional material, including brochures, slide shows, videos and websites.
6. The person signing this contract has legal guardianship of the camper named and acts as custodial parent. In this capacity, the person is in agreement and is aware that the camper named is attending camp and this person has the legal authority to make decisions on behalf of both the mother and father. All parents, siblings, heirs, executors, successors or assigns agree to read the terms of this contract and agree that unless they contact us in writing they are in agreement with the terms herein.
7. The Camp Directors have the authority to search camper belongings, including mail and packages, for items prohibited by camp. Prohibited items will be removed from camper belongings in accordance with our Camper Code of Conduct, a copy of which is available on this website.
8. The parent agrees to read the Taylor Statten Camp Guide (distributed in the spring) for full awareness and understanding of the rules and policies of camp and to review this handbook and all applicable rules/policies with the camper.
9. The parent understands that items not permitted in camp will be confiscated, not returned to the camper, and (if applicable) given to charity.
10. In the event of cancellation or reduction of enrolment the camp does not apply deposits or fees to siblings. The financial obligations of camp are fixed for the season and the withdrawal of a camper does not lessen operating expenses.
11. The Camp reserves the right to dismiss a camper from camp and send her or him home at expense of the parents at any time without notice when it is deemed to be in the best interest of either the child or camp, or for violation of any camp rule, all as determined by camp in its sole and absolute discretion.
12. Parents shall reimburse camp for any intentional damage or defacement of camp property. The cost of removing graffiti will be added to the campers tuck bill.
13. Any additional transportation including emergency canoe trip evacuations provided by the camp for any reason shall be paid for by the parents.
