While August Camp has never been canceled due to events such as fires, flood or earthquakes, recent tragic wildfires out west have prompted the August Camp Committee to think about how such natural disasters could affect August Camp. In the event of Camp cancellation or interruption due to some such unforeseeable event, August Camp would return all or part of the camp registration fees to affected campers, with the amount depending on the timing of such interruption or cancellation. Camper expenses outside the registration fees, such as airline tickets and related travel expenses, are not the responsibility of August Camp. August Camp strongly recommends that Campers purchase travel insurance to cover expenses in the case of personal cancellation and also in the case of camp cancellation. If you choose to purchase such insurance, verify with your insurer that it covers cancellation for any reason, including natural disasters.
