A $500 deposit plus $25.50 tax is required to reserve your spot in any session. This deposit is non-refundable. For summer camp sessions, the balance is due either April 1 (early bird registrations) or May 1 (standard registrations). For non-summer sessions, the balance is due 30 days prior to the first day of camp. After the due date this amount is also non-refundable, unless we are able to fill your spot with someone from the waiting list. (See also our COVID-19 special exception below). For unforeseen events such as hurricane evacuation, cancelled flight, illness or injury, travel insurance is available.
Because of these unprecedented times, we are officially revising our standard “no refunds” policy as regards COVID-19, effective immediately. If any summer session is cancelled due to COVID-19 or if any camper is unable to attend due to enforced stay-at-home orders or travel restrictions which overlap with their camp dates, we will refund all camp fees except for the initial deposit of $500 plus tax per week (approximately a 74% refund of full price payments).
Surf Hatteras will absolutely not tolerate the use of alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs by campers at any time during camp sessions. This includes JUULs and the like. Those found to be in violation of this rule will not simply be warned, but will be sent home immediately without a refund.
This is an optional policy that reimburses up to $2000 per week in the event of session cancellation or interruption for covered reasons (e.g. mandatory hurricane evacuation, cancelled flight, covered injury or illness, etc). For more information on the policy click here.
