Our third-party camp registration service has procedures in place designed to reduce the risk of accidental destruction, or loss, or unauthorized disclosure or access to such information appropriate to the nature of the information concerned, including:
(where appropriate) password protection, encryption, and use of secure communication transmission software (known as "transport layer security" or "TLS") to protect their Sites;

The security of personal information depends in part on the security of the computer used to communicate with us. We recommend that users take steps to protect against unauthorized access to passwords, computer, and web-enabled devices by signing off after using a shared computer, inserting a password on your web-enabled device, choosing a password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, keeping your passwords private, and periodically changing passwords. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen or compromised passwords, or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
Our third-party service stores personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. Where your information is no longer needed, we ensure that it is disposed of securely. There are circumstances when we may be required to store your personal information for longer periods of time to be in accordance with legal, regulatory, tax, or accounting requirements. In specific circumstances we may store your personal information for longer periods of time, so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of complaints or challenges, or if we reasonably believe there is the prospect of litigation relating to your personal information or transactions.
We use state-of-the-art Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to safeguard and protect your personal information and transactions over the internet. Credit card information is encrypted by the third-party service, and cannot be read as it travels over the Internet.

Monetary refunds are not provided to any portion of 2023 camp tuition paid for with camp account credits from a prior year. Any payments for 2023 camp tuition paid by camp account credit will be returned to the family’s account credit balance for future use.
Health History Form (“HHF”)
HHF’s are required by regulations and are important for your camper’s care and safety. Due to the high volume of forms ESC receives, we have a system in place that requires HHF’s to be completed well before camp begins so that we have time to review and process them. We respectfully ask for and appreciate your cooperation in regard to HHF’s. HHF’s are part of a Camper Profile that is completed online via CampDoc.com. HHF’s are NOT accepted at camp locations.
HHF’s are due by May 15th. For registrations made after May 15th, the HHF is due within 14 days, or by the Saturday eight (8) days prior to the start of the camp session, whichever date is earlier.

Tuition received after May 15th (in respect of registrations made before May 15th) will incur a $75 additional charge. There is a $50 late processing fee charged for HHF’s completed online after the deadlines disclosed in the preceding paragraph.
Special Needs Policy and Considerations
Due to the complexities of administering a summer camp, the parent/guardian of a prospective camper who has an aide at school, or may have a physical, emotional, or other limitation, or other restriction, that might require an adjustment to the physical, educational, or recreational program(s) or to any other aspect of camp life, must contact our corporate office in writing by April 1st. We reserve the right to determine, in our sole discretion, whether or not we can adequately meet the needs of any registrant and to decline the registration of any individual when deemed appropriate.
The types of limitations that require advance notice include, but are not limited to, dietary restrictions (religious or otherwise), visual, auditory, mobility impairments and emotional and psychological impairments or other needs for program modification or adaptive equipment or special medical needs.
We will speak with a parent/guardian in an effort to assess ESC’s ability to accommodate special needs. With respect to special emotional/behavioral needs and limitations we will assess our staff’s ability to accommodate camper special needs giving due consideration to the fact that ESC staff members are primarily college students on summer break who are not trained or qualified to provide special or individualized care related to emotional/behavioral needs and limitations.
If a camper has an aide at school, an aide is required at ESC. The parent/guardian is responsible for payment of any aide compensation, room and board for the aide and the aide is subject to a criminal background check and must be interviewed by an ESC corporate staff member prior to camp.
Community Expectations of Campers (camp rules)
ESC’s Community Expectations are contained in the Parent Manual found within your camper’s CampDoc.com account and are incorporated herein by reference. A parent/guardian is responsible for reviewing them with the camper. They are reviewed again by ESC at the start of camp. Campers may be dismissed without refund for not complying with ESC’s Community Expectations or for behavior, actions or attitudes that, in the sole judgment of ESC staff, are deemed harmful to himself/herself, other campers or the overall atmosphere at camp. In addition, the following specific acts may result in immediate dismissal without refund: drug/alcohol/tobacco/vaping use or possession; viewing pornography or inappropriate material on the internet; swearing, racial or other slurs; physical violence or threats of violence against others or oneself; bullying; damage to host campus facilities or Emagination equipment, stealing, sexual harassment, hacking and downloading malware of any kind.
Internet Access and Electronic Devices Brought from Home
Internet access is provided in computer labs and in residence halls. Campers may bring electronic devices to camp, but they may not be used during course instruction. ESC cannot, and does not, control internet access on electronic devices brought from home and cannot guarantee that a camper will not be exposed to the internet via the electronic device of another camper. ESC’s Community Expectations stipulate that campers only access age and/or content appropriate websites.
ESC accepts roommate requests, and we are often able to accommodate the request when made by both parties, however, we do not guarantee that a roommate request can or will be accommodated.
ESC provides equal opportunity for all qualified participants and does not discriminate in providing services to any individual on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other protected status.
Third Party Vendors of Online Registration and Camper Information Services
ESC uses The Active Network, a third-party vendor, for its online registration and CampDoc.com, a third-party vendor, to collect, maintain and disseminate important camper information including HHF’s, and Parent Manuals. The Active Network and CampDoc.com do not perform any other function for Emagination's summer camp programs.

In case my child/ward has an illness or accident during camp, ESC and its representatives have my permission to make suitable arrangements for and to authorize medical care and to act in my stead according to their best judgment in any emergency requiring medical attention. I understand that all medical expenses will be paid by me or by my child's/ward's medical insurance plan.
I understand that I am responsible for advising ESC of all medical conditions of my child/ward that may, in any way, impact my child’s/ward’s health during camp and for providing adequate quantities of necessary medications and allergy serums to ESC in original pharmacy containers with doctor’s instructions written in English. I give permission for ESC to administer prescribed medications. I understand that I am responsible for retrieving any medications on the last day of camp and any medications left at camp will be discarded.
I hereby state that, except as disclosed on the Health History Form, the camper being registered herein is in good health and has no dietary, physical, behavioral, emotional, or mental limitations.
I understand ESC cannot, and does not, control internet access on electronic devices brought from home and cannot guarantee that a camper will not be exposed to the internet via the electronic device of another camper.

I understand that ESC cannot guarantee that a camper will not be exposed to inappropriate content.
I understand that ESC may allow video games to be played during recreation time and/or used in the curriculum of certain courses and such games may be rated “E” “T” or “M”.
