Summer BLAST Camp Payments and Policies
Quarantine After Travel
Unvaccinated students must quarantine for 7 days after travel when:
Traveling by plane, train, or bus
Visiting unvaccinated relatives or friends in another state (including other children)
To come to camp, students must have a negative test result to exit quarantine (test must be taken no earlier than day 5 of the quarantine period)
Fully vaccinated students do not need to quarantine after travel. Unvaccinated students do not need to quarantine when traveling by car, or visiting vaccinated relatives in another state.
This means if you have travel plans and intend to send your child to camp immediately upon your return, you will not be able to do so unless you meet the no-quarantine criteria.
Families who receive financial aid must use their discount code when registering. Families will receive a discount code based on their 2021-2022 financial aid award. Families who are newly applying for aid for 2022-2023 should wait until their 2022-2023 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, 2022, and June 1, 2022.
Registrations after May 1: Upon registration, families will be charges 50% of the registration total. The remaining balance will be automatically charged on June 1, 2022.
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.
Families who are enrolled at Giddens School and receive financial aid for the 21-22 school year will receive this same percentage of aid for their summer camp registration. Departing families who are not re-enrolling in 22-23 but received financial aid in 21-22 will receive their 21-22 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.
