PEMI’S STANDARD REFUND POLICY: Pemi’s standard refund policy remains as published on our Sessions, Dates & Rates page:
“In the event that you choose to withdraw and/or cancel your son’s enrollment, deposits are non-refundable (unless your child is on the waiting list and a space does not become available, or you apply for financial aid and we are unable to meet your needs). Tuition is non-refundable after February 15, and no reductions are made for withdrawal prior to the start of camp, late arrivals, early departures, missed days, withdrawal during the season, or any other cause. Directors also reserve the right to dismiss any camper who violates the camp rules or whose behavior is detrimental to the general welfare of camp. No refund will be made in the case of dismissal.”
TUITION OR PROGRAM PROTECTOR INSURANCE: Given our stated policy, we encourage families to look into and consider purchasing tuition or program protector insurance (similar to travel or trip protection) through a third-party in the event that they must withdraw their son from camp or cancel his enrollment due to unexpected reasons. There are a number of companies to explore, including MH Ross. Please look carefully at any policy to see if it covers Covid-19-related withdrawals.
In the unlikely event that Pemi is unable to open or must close while in session due to circumstances beyond our control, rest assured that we will amend the “no-refunds” policy accordingly, as follows:
IF PEMI MUST CHANGE ITS SESSION DATES, we will notify enrolled families immediately and you will receive the option to either enroll in the newly created session or receive a full refund.
IF PEMI IS UNABLE TO OPEN: If government regulations or any other reason prohibit Pemi from opening, please know that we are fully prepared to honor all requests for refunds. We will give enrolled families the option to receive a full refund (including the deposit), roll tuition to the next summer, gift funds to Pemi, or request a combination of those options.
IF PEMI MUST CLOSE DURING A SESSION: in this unlikely scenario, we will amend the no-refunds policy to offer the following to our families:
- If the closure occurs in the first half of your son’s session, Pemi will offer to refund 50% of tuition.
- If the closure happens in the second half of your son’s session, there will be no refund.
IF A BOY TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID: If a boy tests positive for Covid, Pemi will notify parents immediately to determine the best course of action. As the CDC continues to update their guidance with recommended quarantine and isolation times, Pemi will amend its policy to follow the most up-to-date guidance.
QUESTIONS: As always, please contact us to discuss any of the above.
