Late Registration, Cancellation, and Proation

Late Registration

Late registration often requires instructors and staff to readjust at the last minute. If enrollment occurs after Thursday at noon, the week before the next camp session, an additional late fee of $25 will be added to each session’s registration fee.

Cancellation

By Summer at Saint Mary's Hall
Camps and classes are limited in size and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Summer at Saint Mary’s Hall reserves the right to cancel any course, camp, or program due to insufficient enrollment. If this occurs, staff will work with families to transfer to another available camp or refund tuition.

By the student
A full refund will be given for cancellations made before May 20, 2019. After that date, your money will be refunded only if the class is canceled or a student is medically precluded from participating. A letter from a licensed physician is required. Cancellations made after May 20, 2019, will be charged a $50 cancellation fee for each week, for each student, that classes are canceled.

Proration

Proration is no longer available as instructors and staff plan a full week of camp, including supply costs, for each student registered by Thursday at noon, the week prior. We are unable to prorate for camper absences including vacation schedules, conflicting activities, or a change in plans.

Waiting Lists and Absences

Waiting Lists

All camps have enrollment limits which assure campers a safe and fun learning experience. Our online registration system automatically develops a waiting list for all camps. If space opens up in a camp, parents will be notified via email to login to their account and register for the camp.

Absences

To ensure the daily safety of each camper, we ask that you report any absence or plans to drop-off or pick-up early. Please email enrichment@smhall.org or call the Office of Enrichment at (210) 483-9124.

Extended Care

The Extended Care Program provides care for campers enrolled in Summer at Saint Mary’s Hall before and after camp: 7am–9am and 3:45pm–6pm. The program includes relaxed recreational activities including games and outdoor play. We encourage parents to sign up in advance for our Extended Care Program to help our administration better plan for staffing needs. We understand that circumstances do not always permit early or planned enrollment so Extended Care is open on a drop-in basis for parents with unforeseen scheduling difficulties. Campers who are dropped off before 8:45am or not picked up by 3:45pm will automatically be enrolled into the Extended Care Program. For this supervised time, parents will be charged at the rate listed below. Late fees will be charged after 6pm.
