Youth Camp policies

Cancelation Policy

If you cancel your registration more than 14 days prior to the start of the camp session, your registration fee will be refunded minus a $50 administrative fee. If you cancel your registration less than 14 days prior to the start of the camp session, no refund will be available.

If space is available, campers may transfer their registration to another camp session within the same camp season at no charge. Canceled registrations cannot be applied to registrations for the following year, nor are they transferable to other participants.

If a camp session is canceled by AHS, all registration fees will be refunded in full.

Time With Shelter Animals

While shelter animals are an important part of Youth Camp, time in our adoption center is very limited and closely monitored. Students will have daily opportunities for contact with a variety of animals, including shelter animals and visiting guests, but should not expect to spend significant amounts of time with animals waiting for adoption.

Participant Behavior

While at Youth Camp, all camp participants are expected to treat other campers, AHS staff, and animals with respect and compassion.  Behavior guidelines for all participants will be reviewed with campers on the first day of each camp session. Campers who are consistently unable to follow these guidelines may be asked to leave camp for the day, or may be dismissed for the remainder of the session. No refunds will be available to campers who are dismissed for behavioral reasons.

Camper Cell Phone Use

Campers who bring cell phones with them to camp should expect to use their phones only to contact parents in case of an emergency.  Calling or texting during camp activities will not be permitted.

Zero Tolerance

We have zero tolerance regarding fighting or using an object as a weapon. Likewise, the use of tobacco, drugs, or alcohol is strictly prohibited. Violation of these policies is grounds for immediate dismissal from camp. No refunds will be available to campers who are dismissed for a violation of these policies.
