55$ + tax, per week.


Attendance:

Attendance is taken at the beginning of each day. If your child is absent on the attendance list, the Camp Coordinator will first call home, and then the parent’s work to confirm that the child is absent. If you know in advance that your child will be absent from camp, we ask that you contact us at spaceexplorers@uwo.ca to let us know of their absence.

Cancellation and Refund Policy:

All cancellations and refund requests must be sent via e-mail to spaceexplorers@uwo.ca two weeks prior to the camp’s start date. No refunds will be issued if the request is made less than two weeks of the start date of the camp. A 15% non-refundable administration fee is applied to any and all cancellations. There are no refunds issued for the days during which your child is not present during the registered days. If you choose to modify the attendance details, the request must be submitted in writing two weeks prior to the camp’s start date. In this instance, a $15.00 change fee will be administered to your account. In certain circumstances, a full refund will be issued for withdrawals due to medical reasons, with appropriate medical documentation provided. No refunds will be made in the event of university closure.
