*Camper Deposit Refund Policy: The $150 deposit required to secure your camper’s spot is non-refundable. However, we will issue a full refund if there is a personal medical or family emergency. We will also refund your deposit if, after receiving financial assistance and discussing a payment plan, our assistance is inadequate to meet your needs.

**Our goal is to provide single-gender wilderness trips. If there are not enough campers registered to run a single-gender trip, we will merge cabins and send out one trip. In this event, all trips will have both a male and female counselor, there will be no mixed-gender tents, and genders will have opportunities for single-gender discussion and activity times.
