    • There will be no refunds given after April 30, 2020
  • Our updated policy on cancellation is as follows: COVID-19 REFUND POLICY: In the event that we are forced to cancel a week of camp (or more) due to the spread of the coronavirus, here is what we are planning to do:
  1. If your camp week is cancelled, you will have the option to transfer your registration to another camp week, without penalty, if there is availability. You will also have the option to apply your registration towards Summer 2021 and lock in the cost of next summer’s camp at this year’s price.
  2. If you are unable to transfer due to lack of availability, your registration fee will be refunded.
  3. If you make the decision not to attend another week, your registration fee will be refunded (minus the 15% deposit).
  4. In the event a child or staff person demonstrates symptoms associated with Covid-19 we may be required to close the program in which they participate for 24 hours in order to fully disinfect the classroom. Unfortunately we are unable to issue a partial refund in these cases.

Payment for Bixby Summer Camp is due on the 1st of each month your child will attend. Automatic payment will be processed on the morning of the 6th day of each month using the payment method entered upon registration.

In the event that you need to request a partial or full refund, you must submit your request in writing, including an explanation, and submit it to summer@bixbyschool.org.
