Summer BLAST Camp Payments and Policies
Families who receive financial aid must use their discount code when registering. Families will receive a discount code based on their 2022-2023 financial aid award. Families who are newly applying for aid for 2023-2024 should wait until their 2023-2024 financial aid award is set and they've received their discount code before registering.
Registrations prior to May 1: Upon registration, families will be charged a $25 non-refundable registration fee per week of camp. Your remaining balance will be automatically charged in two installments on May 1, 2023, and June 1, 2023.
Registrations after May 1: Upon registration, families will be charged 50% of the registration total. The remaining balance will be automatically charged on June 1, 2023.
After June 1: The full balance of the registration is due.
To cancel your camp registration, you may send a request through your 6crickets account.
Through April 30: You may cancel your summer camp registration for a full refund, less a $25 per week registration fee. You will not be charged a fee if you opt to change your registration to another camp week if space permits.
From May 1 to May 31: You will be responsible for 50% of the summer camp registration cost for any cancelled weeks.
After June 1: No refund for cancellations after June 1, but your payment can be applied to other weeks of camp if space permits.
Camp Closure due to COVID-19 or other Health & Safety Concerns: If Giddens School cancels camp for COVID-19 or other Health & Safety concerns, families will be refunded a prorated amount for any days their student does not have access to camp.
Cancellations due to student illness: If a student is unable to attend camp due to illness a refund will not be provided.
Families who are enrolled at Giddens School and receive financial aid for the 22-23 school year will receive this same percentage of aid for their summer camp registration. Departing families who are not re-enrolling in 23-24 but received financial aid in 22-23 will receive their 22-23 financial aid discount. Giddens School does accept DSHS and the City of Seattle CCAP subsidy – reach out to Mindy Huffman if you have questions.
Please reach out to Steve Stapleton, Business Office Coordinator at Giddens School, with any questions about summer camp payments, financial aid, or refunds.
For general questions including adding camp weeks, swapping weeks, or cancelling weeks, please contact the Summer Camp Office.
