Camp Erie is committed to following the most current and up-to-date information released by the CDC and CDPHE. With the dynamic nature of this pandemic and virus, this information is subject to change and will be updated as soon as possible. Please be patient with us as we get updates at the same time you do!
Camp Erie has reached capacity (per state licensing requirements) each of the past six summers and we have not been able to provide for all families in need of full and part-time care. We made the difficult decision to only offer full-summer registration based on feedback received and the belief that it provides for the greatest need of full-time care. We also believe this creates the best camp experience for each child as they get to know each other and their counselors very well without the introduction of new children every week.
Understanding there are many families in your situation that only need part-time care, we have worked very hard to improve and increase part-time camp options. These include many single day, single week, full and half-day camps in arts & crafts, enrichment, climbing, dance, sports, and STEM activities.
100% refund if requested prior to the registration deadline minus the $50 non-refundable deposit. Refunds requested after the registration deadline are not guaranteed but will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. All refunds are subject to a $5 processing fee (excludes household credits). The registration deadline for summer camp is Monday, April 25. Refunds will not be given for missed days, vacations, sickness, or any other unplanned emergencies. - In the event that there is a COVID-19 outbreak through Camp in which the facilities need to be temporarily closed, prorated refunds will be given.
Unfortunately, we do not offer single day/week refunds for camps. However, we have adjusted our prices to reflect that campers may miss a few days due to illness, emergencies, and preplanned family vacations.
