wHAT ABOUT EARLY DEPARTURE/TEMPORARY DISMISSAL?
Early departure is discouraged. Teams are assigned, meals are ordered, and sessions are planned based on all registered delegates being in attendance for the entire workshop. Schools should only send delegates who commit to attend the entire workshop.
WHAT ABOUT REGISTERED STUDENTS WHO DO NOT ARRIVE TO CAMP?
- The camp staff will immediately attempt to reach the student’s parents or guardian to report the student’s absence.
- Next, the student’s high school and advisor will be notified of the student’s absence.
- Due to the fact that for the past four years, the camp has reached capacity, resulting in entire school delegations having to be turned away, the department considers it mandatory that we recoup any dept funds used to pay the registration fee for a delegate that is a no-show. Therefore the Department of Student Activities and Athletics will invoice the school for those funds.
- Whether the school paid all of the registration fee or part of the registration fee, if the student is a no-show and made no attempt to notify the school in a timely manner, it is recommended that the school place an obligation against the student for whatever the school paid on that student’s behave.
