Online Registration: What To Expect

IDEAS Camps uses Active Network’s secure registration system to process all camp transactions. Active is a global company known as a leader in simplicity, security and privacy. Our company has used the Active platform for well over a decade without experiencing any problems.

Please expect the registration process to take approximately 10 minutes per camper. We apologize in advance for the required time commitment, however please trust we need to gather important information to ensure the safety and enjoyment of your child when the camp season begins. We ask many questions due to safety, allergies, parent/guardian’s information and third party emergency contact information. Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you need assistance at any time, contact us.

Important Note:
The online enrollment process will “time-out” on you if you happen to leave one of the pages untouched for longer than 15 minutes (this applies only to a page, not the entire flow of the registration process. Unfortunately, there is not a save button, so please keep the time limit in mind. 

To expedite your registration experience, please have all relevant information on hand before you register. This information includes but is not limited to: family doctor name and contact information. Insurance provider name and policy number. Emergency contact information (outside the immediate family) of friends or family. Lastly, please prepare to upload a digital shoulder/headshot picture of your camper(s) for security purposes.

Contact Us To Redeem and Apply a Credit

Unfortunately, our online registration system may not allow you to redeem your credit during the checkout process.  

Therefore, if you have a credit and you would like to apply the credit to your camp balance, it is imperative that you contact us PRIOR to registering for camp. If you need assistance with this process, contact us.

Transfers, Waitlist, and Cancellation Policy

If IDEAS Camps Cancels A Camp Session, You Will Receive a Full Refund Including Your Deposit

We are sorry, but there are no exceptions, but one: the only exception is if IDEAS Camps cancels a camp session, you will receive a full refund, including your deposit.

Non-Transferable

Discounts, registrations or credits are non-transferable unless the recipient is a sibling.

Refund Protection If We Cancel Camp

If IDEAS Camps cancels a program for any reason, you will receive a full refund, including your deposit.

Please note that in the past, we have only cancelled a program for two reasons:

  1. The program had extremely low enrollment.
  2. The camp location and/or environment was unsafe to operate a camp.
Transfer To Another Session Date

Provided you email us two-weeks in advance of the camp start date you want to transfer out of, you may change the date of the session you enrolled your camper(s).

However, transferring to another session is permitted so long as the newly-chosen session has not reached full capacity.

Therefore, we cannot guarantee your request will be fulfilled. Our apologies in advance.

*To transfer your camper into a new session, please email info@ideasummercamps.comPlease include your full name, participant’s full name, camp that you are registered for and the camp dates.

  2. If you elected to pay in full at the time of registration THEN IDEAS Camps will refund your full tuition less the 25% deposit per enrolled session (which was paid for and included in at the time of your original regsitration and payment).
  3. In other words, you are not penalized for paying in full during initial registration before May 1.

If You Cancel Camp AFTER May 1:

We are sorry, but IDEAS Camps does not provide any refunds after May 1.

Your entire payment, after May 1, is non-refundable.

If you cancel your camp session at least TWO WEEKS (14 days) prior to the start date of the program you are cancelling, you may elect to do the following:

  1. Transfer your camp session to another date or transfer your camp slot to a sibling – space permitting. We cannot transfer your camper(s) if you:
    1. Cancel within the two-week timeframe
    2. Request a transfer into a camp program that is already dold out. 
  2. Elect to take a full credit for the next calendar year. You may take a full credit only if:

    2. If you cancel your camp program(s) within the the tw-week period your registration will be cancelled and no refund or credit will be allowed.
