General Policies and Information

Suzuki Family Camp Refund Policy
Refunds are processed within 30 days of written notice to the Suzuki Family Camp Registrar at Requests received by June 1 are eligible for all fees paid to be refunded except the non-refundable $75 deposit. Requests received after June 1 are not eligible for a refund.

Coronavirus Pandemic Considerations: If a student is impacted directly by the coronavirus pandemic and/or complications related to COVID-19, all tuition will be refunded, including the deposit. Examples include but are not limited to:

  • Student cannot attend due to adjusted school dates which conflict with Blue Lake session
  • Student has personal health or activity restrictions due to COVID-19 concerns
  • Student or family health concerns arise at camp (the student/family is not permitted to stay)
  • Blue Lake cancels a program or session. (If cancelation occurs, refunds will be processed within 90 days).

Blue Lake aims to remain as flexible as possible for students who feel the need to withdraw and cancel a reservation. However, we are a small non-profit organization which is funded primarily through earned income from camp tuition. Because our organization sustains significant administrative cost associated with managing operations, enrollment, and pre-season preparations, we also wish to provide opportunities for those who are invested in supporting the mission and longevity of Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. If it is in your means to so do, we hope you will consider one of the options below:

Tuition Refund Minus Deposit: Your deposit helps to cover administrative costs and transactional processing by third-party companies. Donating your deposit will help Blue Lake recoup these expenses.

Tuition Credit: You may transfer the full balance of your current reservation to credit toward any future Blue Lake program.

Full or Partial Donation: Blue Lake is a small non-profit organization which is funded primarily through earned income from camp tuition. If you are in a position to donate any portion of your tuition to our organization, you will help Blue Lake to weather the economic impacts of the pandemic. Your donation supports our ability to meet year-around operating costs, maintains our scholarship funds, and ensures the future of our programs. Donations are considered tax-deductible.

Confirmation and Further Information: A confirmation letter will be mailed shortly after your registration is received stating your balance due. Further information about the camp, program and items to bring will be emailed in May.

If a Parent is Unable to Attend: Send the name and contact info of the adult responsible and enclose a notarized statement with the application releasing BLFAC and the adult at camp from any liability. Students who are 12 and older may stay in a Teen Cabin with a camp counselor. Additional recreational and social activities are planned for the students in Teen Cabins.

No pets allowed on camp
