Will I get a refund including my deposit?
You will be receiving a full refund of all monies paid for the 2020 summer programs including the deposit paid at registration which is generally non-refundable.
Full refunds will be issued within the next few weeks in the form of checks to the parent/guardian and the mailing address in which it was registered during the online registration process. Any additional refund-related questions may be emailed to the Camp Director, Dave Staehle at email@example.com.
Can my paid tuition and deposit fees be transferred to the 2021 Summer Programs?
Unfortunately, due to several factors and complications in doing so, CM7 will not be able to transfer tuition fees to the 2021 Summer programs.
Can our kid(s) be guaranteed a spot for the 2021 Summer programs?
Regretfully, due to several factors and complications in doing so, CM7 will not be able to grant this request. Registration 2021 will resume utilizing the same process we use every year in January 2021. Announcements on the dates for 2021 will be made after our M7DF Annual October meeting this fall.
What about our KODA 16 year-old camper(s) who will be 17 next year? Will CM7 consider extending the age group to age 17 for the KODA camp program in 2021, for those who couldn’t come to this summer’s camp?
The M7DF board and CM7 staff will take this into consideration and put this on the agenda for our M7DF Annual October meeting this fall.
Will CM7 be available for retreats in the fall?
As of now, yes, but that is subject to change depending on the COVID-19 situation.
Will there be a virtual camp of some version, which allows campers to meet online for the duration of the summer programs?
The M7DF board is currently looking into that option to determine if we can have online workshops for anyone who would be interested in joining for a small fee. Announcements will be made at a later date.
