Spots are limited and are available on a week-by-week basis following the Camp Minnehaha schedule.

DEPOSIT POLICY FOR CAMPS: Instead of full payment, a deposit may be made at the time of enrollment to secure a spot in individual weeks of Camp Minnehaha or Fischer Park Nature Camp by paying $25 per child, per week of camp that they would like to register for. This deposit payment will reserve a camper’s spot in the program until full payment is due.

The remaining balance for camp tuition is due 14 days before the camper's first day of camp for each registered week. Failure to submit the remaining payment, 14 days before registered start date, may result in the forfeiture of that week’s deposit and the loss of the reserved spot at camp.

CANCELLATION POLICY FOR CAMPS: Full refunds will only be given if notice is received five (5) or more days prior to the start of the registered week of camp. No refund can be given once camp has begun. Registration costs cannot be prorated for partial attendance.
