I. Code of Conduct

I agree that I have read through, understand, and agree that I and my student will be held to the Code of Conduct set forth below when participating in a Camp Connect class session. I also agree that I have reviewed the Code of Conduct with my student(s). I understand that I and my student must act in a way that is in keeping with the Code of Conduct and that my student can be dismissed from a program if either of our actions or attitudes seem to be harmful to the atmosphere, to my student, other participants, or staff, in the opinion of Camp Connect staff. I and my student understand that Camp Connect reserves the right to dismiss my student from the program without any prior warning for violating any of the terms of the code of conduct. Refunds will not be given for students dismissed for failure of the student or the parent to abide by the code of conduct. I also acknowledge that upon staff observation of my student at the Camp Connect program, the Director may determine that the program is not a suitable and/or productive environment for my student. In this case, Camp Connect may dismiss the student and no refund will be issued. This includes incidents where a student does not have sufficient English language skills to participate in the course, as all Camp Connect courses are taught in English and therefore participation in courses requires a high level of English understanding. While Camp Connect strives to maintain excellent relationships with students, in some rare cases, Camp Connect may not be a compatible environment for every student. I also understand and agree that if my student is dismissed from camp, I am fully responsible for any and all costs incurred by me or Camp Connect in removing my student from camp (i.e. travel, extra supervision, etc.) and that if Camp Connect incurs any charges they may place those charges on My Account.

Students and Parents/Guardians May NEVER:

1. Engage in or threaten violence;

2. bully, intimidate, or harass others;

3. sexually harass others;

4. smoke, use tobacco, or vape products during Camp Connect sessions;

5. use or be under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, illegal or un-prescribed legal

     drug;

6. share the log-in details of a Camp Connect session with anyone outside of the

     class and not a member of Camp Connect staff.

Students Also May NEVER:

1. view or display pornography or any inappropriate material (including sexual content, inappropriate violence, racism, bullying, etc.);

2. share personal information with staff members or ask staff members for their personal information;

3. contact staff members on social media or in any other form outside of camp unless otherwise stated;

4. wear see-through clothing or exposed undergarments or accessories or clothing that have statements or pictures that are offensive in nature, including but not limited to, statements or pictures referring to violence, drugs, alcohol, gang affiliation, sexual suggestions or racial slurs.

Students and Parents/Guardians MUST:

1. not use personal electronic devices during instructional time-unless they are approved by a Camp Connect staff member;

2. wear clothing that at all times covers the torso and all forms of underclothing.

II. Health and Safety

1. I certify that my student is in good enough health to be able to participate in Camp Connect programs.

2. I understand that, since Camp Connect sessions are conducted online, I maintain full responsibility for their supervision and for any injuries or health issues that may arise during the course of a session, and thus;

3. I understand that if my student experiences an injury or pressing health issue during the course of a session, and I do not clearly and immediately attend to them, the instructor may, but is not obligated to, contact emergency services on my student’s behalf

III. Age Policy

I understand that Camp Connect offers programs designed for students ages 10-14, taught by current college students, and that instructors will interact with students under the age of 18 throughout the duration of each program session. I understand that by registering for Camp Connect, my student will interact with a current college student who is older than 17.

IV. Course Cancelation

I agree that Camp Connect has the right to cancel a course. If a course is cancelled, I understand that I may enroll my student in another course for no additional fee. I agree to be responsible for any costs for the new program that are above the amount paid for the original course. If another course is not available for the same dates, a refund will be issued for all monies paid to Camp Connect for the cancelled course. I understand and agree that if Camp Connect is forced to close a course based on a recommendation by the local Health Services Department (in the case of a communicable disease outbreak, etc.) or due to other acts of nature, I will not be entitled to a refund.

I agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Camp Connect, its officers, directors, employees, and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with my student’s participation in a Camp Connect program.

VII. Arbitration Agreement

I agree that any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement, my student's participation at Camp Connect, or otherwise arising between the parties, including, without limitation, any students statutorily created or protected rights, as permitted by applicable state/provincial or federal laws, may be settled by arbitration in the state/province and county in which the camp is held, in accordance with the Commercial Rules of the American Arbitration Association, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

IX. Charges, Cancellations, and Refunds

A full refund, not including processing fees, is only available 72 hours (3 days) prior to the start time of the enrolled camp week. Missed days of camp, for any reason, will not be refunded. We reserve the right, but are not obligated to give refunds in extenuating circumstances. Please reach out to enroll@2020campconnect.com for refund requests.

X. Donations & Financial Assistance

1. Financial Assistance: Camp Connect is committed to making our programs as accessible as possible to students of any economic background. Any parent who cannot pay full tuition may request any amount of financial assistance. We do not require any documents to demonstrate financial hardship, but we do ask that parents pay as much as they are able. We encourage parents who can easily pay tuition to donate as much as they feel comfortable in addition, so we can provide financial assistance to as many families as possible.

2. Donations: I understand that all donations are handled through Venmo, an independent service with their own Privacy Policy, and I agree that I have read and understand this Privacy Policy.

XI. Contacting Camp Instructors / Staff

Under no circumstances should a student give their personal contact information to staff, nor is staff allowed to give students their personal contact information. Staff may exchange personal contact information only with parents/guardians, if they choose to do so after receiving a request from the parent/guardian. All contact outside Camp Connect programs between students and staff must be arranged by the student’s parent/guardian through communication directly with the staff. Should parents/guardians choose to engage with staff, or choose to let their student contact staff outside of Camp Connect programs, they do so at their own risk.

 

XII. Photo and Video Consent

I understand and consent that Camp Connect may use photographs and/or video taken of me or my child during classes/camp, etc. for marketing, advertising and promotional materials including, but not limited to, display, distribution and/or online.

XIII. Rights Reserved

Camp Connect reserves the right to update or modify these Terms and Conditions at any time. Activities, guest speakers, and tech tours will change session to session and may not apply to all locations. We reserve the right to cancel a course if participation numbers are not adequate. In the case where a suitable Camp Connect replacement week is not found, a full refund will be issued. On rare occasions, the software and hardware we use at our programs may change without notice, and we will strive to find suitable software and hardware alternatives.

XIV. Privacy Policy

I have read, understood and agree that I and my student are bound by the privacy policy found here.
