Camp Policies & Procedures

All Coder Sports in person camps begin at 9:00 AM and end at 4:00 PM. Parents are expected to arrive onsite on time for drop off and pick up. All children under age 13 must be accompanied in person to & from the Kanata Coder Gym for hand over to our camp staff.

Before and after care, beginning at 8:00 AM and ending at 5:00 PM may be available certain camp weeks. Failure to pick up the camper on time will result in removal from the remainder of the camp and/or a fee of $1.50 per minute for every minute the parent or guardian is late.

You may cancel a summer camp on or before May 26, 2022 and receive a refund minus a $75 administrative fee/camp. If you cancel after May 26, 2022, there will be no refund issued.
We reserve the right to cancel any program due to low enrolment. If a camp is cancelled, you will be notified and offered to move to a different program or have a full refund issued.

Cancellations Due to Medical or Emergency Circumstances

Partial refunds may be granted (less $75 admin fee) after the cancellation and refund period for medical or emergencies circumstances only. An email notice of cancellation with explanation of medical or emergency circumstances must be provided for a refund request to be considered. Additional documentation may be requested by Coder Sports Academy. Partial or full refunds for medical or emergency circumstances will be at the discretion of Coder Sports management after reviewing the request.

Changes in Cancellation and Refund Procedures

Coder Sports Academy may make changes to cancellation and refund procedures when considering the health and safety of campers and staff. No refunds will be given for campers arriving late, leaving early, dismissed from camp, or unable to attend all or part of any session.
Should Coder Sports choose to cancel a scheduled camp for which you have registered and completed payment, you will be refunded without penalty.

Camp transfer requests must be requested at least 14 days before the start date of your child’s camp session. Requests will be considered based on availability within the requested program. There is an administrative fee of $50 per camp/per child for each transfer. There are no refunds of transfer fees.
