CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICIES
Is the deposit non-refundable?
A $200 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of registration for all residential and commuter camps. Day-only camps (boys and girls basketball, boys ice hockey day camp, coed soccer day camp, tennis day camp, rock climbing day camp and CUBS camp) require a $100 deposit. One-day camps/clinics are due in full at the time of registration. Without Cancellation Protection, there are absolutely no refunds for cancellations within 30 days of camp. Full payment is required 30 days prior to the start date of camp.
What is cancellation protection?
We strongly advise each camper to purchase Cancellation Protection. Cancellation Protection is available to all campers for $25 (non-refundable), due at the time of registration.
The Cornell policy clearly states that there are no refunds within 30 days of the start date of camp. In the unlikely event that you have to withdraw from camp after this deadline due to a family emergency, injury, illness or other sudden event, Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of your registration fees (less the $25 non-refundable cost of Cancellation Protection) up to seven (7) days before the start of camp.
If you cancel within seven (7) days of the start of camp, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid (less the Cancellation Protection fee of $25). This credit is transferable to a family member or friend if the original participant is unable to attend a future camp, and is valid toward any Cornell Sports Camp for up to two years.
What happens if I cancel and do not have cancellation protection?
The deposit (due upon registration) is non-refundable, and any cancellations without Cancellation Protection will result in the loss of the deposit. We do not offer cash refunds within 30 days of the start of camp. If you do cancel within 30 days of the start of camp, for any reason, the deposit is retained by Cornell Athletics. The remaining balance can be used towards any Cornell Sports Camp for up to one year. This balance cannot be transferred to another participant.
