Peace of Mind Policy

What is your Refund Policy?

If you have to cancel, for any reason, we will issue you a CAMP CREDIT for all tuition fees paid, valid through the following calendar year.  Your CAMP CREDIT is transferable to any family member and may be used at any US Performing Arts Camp/Workshop.  Prior to May 1 cash refunds will be given only with the purchase of Cancellation Protection (see terms below)

Leaving After Check-in

After a camper has checked in at camp, if they need to leave for any reason, no credits or refunds will be given for the current session or any sessions to follow. Any campers dismissed for cause by USPA or university staff will not receive any credits or refunds for any and all programs for which they are registered. Students sent home in violation of our rules, for medical reasons, at the discretion of the student, family, or US Performing Arts will receive no refund. Campers found in violation of the code of conduct will be dismissed immediately from the program and housing. Parents will be responsible for all fees, arrangements, and transportation immediately following dismissal.

Cancellation Protection

US Performing Arts offers our camp families Cancellation Protection for $100 per session, due at the time of registration. Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of your camp tuition fees paid to date if you cancel for any reason prior to May 1 or a Camp Credit if you cancel after May 1 and prior to one week before the start of your camp. (Please note: $100 Cancellation Protection and $150 Registration fee are non-refundable.) With Cancellation Protection, if you cancel after your final payment due date of May 1, we will issue you a camp credit for your tuition payments made. Your camp credit will be transferable to an immediate family member and can be used for any US Performing Arts Camp/Workshop. For camps running in 2017, camp vouchers are valid through 2018.

Cancellation by US Performing Arts

In the unlikely event that US Performing Arts Camps cancels your camp session, we will refund only your camp tuition and registration fee. Camper waives any and all damages that may otherwise arise out of any camp cancellation and agrees to accept as liquidated damages said registration fees. (Please note: $100 Cancellation Protection and $150 Registration fee are non-refundable.)

Waitlist Procedure

Additional charges may apply to returned checks and credit card charge backs. Note: A registration fee of $150 will be applied to all students each season. This fee is non-refundable and non-transferable.

Returned Checks/Chargebacks

Payment in full is due at time of registration. We cannot allow students into sessions until all fees have been paid. We accept registrations right up to the start of programs where openings exist. Registrations made within 1 week of camp start date will incur the late registration fee. (See Late Registrations below.)

Commuter Students

On campuses where a commuter option is offered, commuter students will be responsible for the same Code of Conduct as the residential students regarding overall camp policies. In addition, commuters will be held responsible for arriving at camp each day at the appointed time and place. Students will not be admitted late to class. Commuter students are expected to be in class each day and no exceptions will be made for lateness or absence. Students dismissed from the camp/workshop for any breach of policy will not be refunded any portion of money paid. The commuter day is from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Commuter students will be required to arrive no later than 8:45 a.m. each morning. Depending on the nature of the camp/workshop there may be some requirement to attend evening activities. A schedule, possibly subject to change, will be given to each student at orientation. The camp/workshops depend on collaborative learning experiences and are intended to be “serious fun” for students serious about trying new things and improving their craft.

Advertising and Publicity

By registering for any USPA program you agree that US Performing Arts Camps, Inc. retains the right to use, for publicity and advertising purposes, photographs of camper taken at camp.
