Frequently Asked Questions – Youth Camps

Can my child stay between weeks at camp? 
We schedule each camp session with an Stay Over Camp in between. Stay Over Camp activities may include bouldering, swimming, climbing, mini golf, go carting, caving, doing laundry or just sleeping in, eating pizza and relaxing.

What is the reservation / cancellation policy?
We require a non-refundable 50% down payment to hold your reservation. The course balance is due 21 days prior to the start of the camp. 50% of the deposit is refundable if cancellation is made more than 21 days in advance. Cancellations made within 21 days forfeit the full tuition rate. If, for any reason, Acadia Mountain Guides Climbing School must cancel the camp, a full refund will be made.  Payment may be made by MC/VISA, Discover, cash or personal checks. There is a $20.00 charge for returned checks. 

What is the cell phone policy?
We like campers to meet and interact during the week at camp. Like most camps we have found cell phones a distraction from camp life. At the beginning of camp cell phones are collected by camp leaders and then and then returned when camp concludes. Music devices such as IPods may be used when the group is traveling in vehicles. If you would like to find out how your son or daughter is enjoying camp we are happy to provide you with periodic updates.

What are typical meals?
Nutritious, from scratch meals are provided on our overnight camps. Meal preparation is part of the experience and participants will share in the creation of each meal. Vegetarian fare is available and we strive to use locally grown fresh food as much as possible.

Campers in our day programs are asked to provide lunch.
