Summer Adventure

Make the Most of Your Summer

Our Summer Adventure week-long sessions offer three hours of virtual camp per day, Monday through Friday. Programming includes a mix of all-camp as well as small group virtual activities–including a virtual camp-in/out on Thursday night!

Summer Adventures FAQs

Q. How can I pay for camp with cookie credits?

Families who want to pay for virtual camp with cookie credits need to pay for their session in full with a credit card and then mail in cookie credits to be reimbursed. Cookie Credits should be sent to our Saint Paul Service Center with their girls camp registration order number included. Please note that this is a temporary exception to our cookie credit policy (which normally does not allow for reimbursement).

Q. Is financial assistance available for these sessions?

Families can request financial assistance to cover the cost of one virtual camp session. Virtual Camp costs will be covered at 100% for single sessions and cannot be applied to the Summer Adventure Subscription. If you apply for financial assistance, you do not also need to register for the camp session; your registration will be completed by our staff on your behalf.

Q. Can I transfer my in-person camp payment to a virtual session?

No. We are unable to transfer payments from an in-person session to a virtual session at this time. If you registered for an in-person session, your refund with be processed in full and returned to you within 8 weeks. Registration payment for virtual camp must be made in full at the time of registration.

Q. Can I cancel my session and receive a refund? Can I transfer my registration to another session?

Virtual camp sessions follow the same refund and cancellation policy as other River Valleys camp and events. You can cancel your session and receive a refund if requested 30 days prior to the session start date. You may transfer your registration to another session if the request is received 30 days prior to the session’s start date and the new session you’d like to attend hasn’t yet reached its registration deadline.

Camp sessions that begin in fewer than 30 days are non-refundable and non-transferable per our 30-day cancellation policy.
