TERMS & CONDITIONS
If a session is canceled by Camp Grace, the full fee will be refunded. Campers may withdraw from the program up to 45 days in advance and will be given a full refund. Cancellations made after 45 days prior to the start date, will not be entitled to a refund. Any payments made (deposit or full payments) after this time will not be refunded.
Campers are suspended from camp if they bring any of the following items: vape pens, drugs, tobacco, alcohol, firecrackers, weapons, or other dangerous instruments. Campers may also be sent home if they are out of their cabin at night, have pre-existing behavioral or medical conditions that were not communicated to camp, or engage in criminal or sexua behavior. Inappropriate language is not tolerated. Within the camp’s discretion, a camper who is suspended may be allowed back in a subsequent session.
Please do not bring or send candy, gum, or other foods to camp. Some members of our community have severe food allergies, so this rule is strictly enforced.
The camp policy regarding campers calling home is based on the understanding that phone calls can be the most challenging form of contact for campers. Our camp environment is a happy, self-contained community. Phone calls often create a sudden intrusion causing campers to experience feelings that override the good intentions that motivated the phone call. Hearing a parent's voice can be difficult even for a well-adjusted camper. So, we do not encourag ephone calls. *Unless a call has been scheduled by parents, campers are not allowed to call home. *You can always call the office to check in on how you rcamper is doing, and our unit heads are always availableto update you about your camper's progress.
Driving into camp, you will notice a sign that reflects our aspiration for campers: “At Camp Grace, we unplug so we can really connect.” To this end, we are a screen-free camp, and devices with screens are strictly prohibited. This includes phones, tablets, kindles, iPods, cameras, handheld game systems, and all other devices with screens. Any camper using a cell phone (or a device to access the internet) will have the device confiscated and returned after camp. If there is a second violation, the camper will be suspended for a day. Parents will be required to pickup and return the camper at their parents’ expense.
We have photographers who takes countless pictures throughout the camp experience to capture all the memories and will provide a way for you to see them. These photographs may be posted to social media and/or used for advertising purposes. Please follow @campgraceaz on Instagram and/or Facebook to follow along on the campers adventures! For privacy reasons and to avoid any photography in the bunks we do not allow campers to bring cameras to camp.
We strive to protect every member of camp from bullying. In addition to creating a culture of kindness, Camp Grace has a three-strike policy for bullying behavior. For the first incident, the offending camper will participate in a meeting with camp leadership staff. If there is a second incident, the camper’s parents will be notified. If there is a third incident, the camper will be sent home.
Valuables and Money
Valuables: Please do not let your child bring any valuables to camp. If you would be upset if a particular item is lost or broken, the item should stay at home.
Each camper must be in the range of sight or hearing of a staff member at all times. Our top priority is keeping campers safe and healthy, followed closely by ensuring they have a fun, friendship-filled, and memorable summer.
Our dress code helps maintain a safe and comfortable environment. We reserve the right to ask anyone to change if deemed necessary by the camp staff.
During the day, campers are required to wear socks and closed-toed sneakers. This prevents injury and enables campers to move freely around the camp. Campers may wear sandals to evening events.
Tops and Bottoms
Clothing should not contain inappropriate slogans or images. We do not permit revealing clothing for boys or girls, including visible bra-straps, see-through clothing, crop tops with tummies showing, etc.
Sunblock: Sunblock is part of our dress code – you aren’t fully dressed without it!
Anyone who intentionally damages or defaces camp property is liable for such damage, and families will be charged accordingly. This includes writing names on cabins or beds.
To protect each camper’s privacy, campers are only permitted in their own bunks. Under no circumstances may boys or girls enter the opposite gender’s bunk. Campers may not bring cameras or take photographs in bunks, bathrooms, or other private areas.
