Sae Jong Camp 2014
Registration Status: OPEN
Returning SJC families will notice a few changes in fees, policies and balance due dates for SJC 2014. We have made these changes to encourage early registration and timely receipt of fees and forms. This is being done so our SJC leadership can do a better job of staffing, planning and preparing program. These changes are not intended to raise money or make things inconvenient for SJC families. Rather, it is to help us have sufficient time to prepare another great week at SJC. In past we have had people arriving at the start of camp or at the camp bus with campers and their forms and fees! And we have had campers drop out at the last minute and even after camp started for minor reasons. These changes are intended to discourage these practices and help us run things more smoothly and efficiently.
We have implemented a an alternative fee and due date structure for new SJC families. This is because many of our first-time campers hear about SJC during day camps held in June and July – and are therefore unable to register early for SJC. We want to encourage new SJC campers and their families to try SJC and so we have made the fees and due dates different for them. We hope that these changes will make it easier for new families to try our camp, and that once they experience SJC they will become part of the SJC family and return for many years to come.
Also please note that at SJC 2013 we came close to reaching our maximum number of campers. To make sure your camper secures a place at SJC 2014, we urge you to register as soon as you can.

Removal of camper from camp by parent or via expulsion after camp starts forfeits eligibility for refund. Refunds after July 27 may be granted under certain circumstances (e.g. medical emergency) at the sole discretion of the Director.
Discount per extra child:
$20.00 OFF the registration fee per additional child registered per household.
This may be applied when you pay the balance of your registration fees.
Camp fees include $10.00 to spend at the camp store. Each day after lunch, campers may purchase juice, candy, stamps, T-shirts sweatshirts, etc. from the camp store.
Additionally, certain afternoon electives may have a small fee associated with them to cover the cost of camp crafts, model rockets, T-shirt design, etc. Therefore, you may send in additional money for your camper to spend at the camp store with your balance of payment if camper plans to spend more than $10.00 for any of the above items. We will bill you after camp for any additional store credit used. Please note: Any store credit balances less than $12.50 will be considered a donation to SJC, and not returned. *Time and labor involved in refunding less than $12.50 make it impractical.
