Who May Attend

Please note: All weeks of camp are co-educational. A camper may attend more than one (1) week, (but is limited to 2 weeks) and is not allowed to stay over the weekends. The camping experience for children from week to week at Camp Shankitunk is very similar. 

Overnight Camp

Any youth ages 8-16 by January 1st who is able to follow the camp schedule and participate in programming safely and independently is welcome to attend.

Day Camp

Any youth age 6-8 by their selected camp session who is able to follow the camp schedule and participate safely and independently is welcome to attend. We have suspended our Yellow-Sheet Day Camp Program for 2022.

Refund/Cancellation Policy

All camper weeks are subject to a $100 non-refundable processing fee per week.

If a family must cancel a session (we understand that sometimes things happen or plans change), we ask that you notify our camp secretary as soon as possible. We often have families on a waiting list and would like to include their children at camp whenever possible. No refunds will be granted after June 1st. This is due to staffing, food, and program supplies allocation. Thank you for your understanding. 

No refunds will be granted if campers do not arrive at camp when scheduled or who do not complete all required forms by due dates, resulting in cancellation of their registration.

No refunds will be granted if a camper is sent home for medical or behavioral reasons included but not limited to; violating camp rules and policies (see handbook), homesickness, non-compliance, failure to thrive (e.g., not eating or participating). 

A prorated refund will be considered for remaining camp stays if a camper becomes injured at camp and the Camp Health Director or Camp Director (or designee) determined that he/she is unable to participate in camp activities and must be sent home. 

If camp must cancel a session(s) or is unable to open, refunds will be issued to participants. If a session had taken place for 3 or more days at the time of cancellation no refunds will be issued.

All refund requests must be made in writing. Refund requests are subject to review and may take time to process.
