The referral discount program gives $100 off for the referral of a new camper.
There is no limit to the number of referral discounts you can earn, even if we end up offering you credit for tuition next year.
The number of campers referred is independent of number of sessions each signs up for. Referring one friend who signs up for 6 weeks counts as one referral because it was only one person.
If you already paid too much, we can easily refund you through the original method of payment, check, or paypal.
The discount is applied as a credit to your account after you have registered a camper.
If the camper you referred cancels their registration after you received the discount, you will be asked to return the discount. This usually happens as a new charge or a check since we cannot undo refunds to credit cards.
For technical limitations, we are not able to preemptively apply a discount to your account when you do not have an account with a camper. You do not need to make a payment for the discount to appear, but you may need to email if you want the discount applied sooner. We check about once a week for new registrations with referrals. This is done manually because we often get referrals in the form "the Smith family told me," which is very tough for a computer to link to the account of Jimmy Smith instead of Susie Smith.
Can the referral discount be applied to a sibling? Yes, if the sibling is a first time camper at Slovenski Camps. The referral discount applies to new campers only, regardless of whether it is a sibling, cousin, or neighbor.
Can i refer the person who referred me? No, you cannot refer each other to camp. This is true for siblings and friends. A child cannot refer his sibling and be referred by them. A kid cannot be referred by his friend and refer him. We can only apply one discount for $100 in these situations. If you want to split the referral, you must do so amongst yourselves.
The multi week discount is $100 for a second week of camp and any additional week that a camper attends. This does not apply to a whole family, but individual campers.
Early Season Pricing
The first two sessions of the summer are discounted heavily due to seasonal demand
and some schools are still in session, usually the state of New York. These sessions have the same activity options
as regularly priced sessions. The lake is usually a degree or two lower than later. The overall enrollment is sometimes
slightly lower, but that is hard to predict. These are great weeks for
anyone to attend, but they also allow some larger families to send
multiple kids affordably and for kids from lower income families to experience a
Maine summer camp.
The early season prices cannot be applied to any other weeks.
Other Payment & Discount Questions
We do not offer any scholarships. We strive to offer the best camp we can at a reasonable price. We have many old buildings and a large property requiring a lot of maintenance work; we try to attract a high quality staff and compensate them for their hard work; we provide plenty of wholesome food. The first two sessions are heavily discounted in part to allow lower income families attend. The discount cannot be applied to other weeks.
Can the referral discount be applied to a sibling? Yes, if the sibling
is a first time camper at Slovenski Camps. The referral discount applies
to new campers only, regardless of whether it is a sibling, cousin,
Is there late season pricing for the last week? No. We typically have less demand for the last session, but it is a regularly priced week. All the activity options remain the same as regular weeks. We have fewer programs that week (Athena, Dodgeball, Excalibur, and XC), so it usually ends up with extra spaces. We pack up & store the pole vault pits this week, but everything else remains the same.

***2020 Special Announcement***
Camp tuition is now refundable for any reason until 10 days before the start of camp. There are 2 options for your refund:
100% of your payment credited toward tuition in 2021
All but a $40 administrative fee refunded to your original method of payment.
Deposit & Balance Due Dates
A deposit of $150 per camper is required
to hold a space in camp. Registration is not complete
until payment is received.
The balance of tuition is due June 1st.
You may ask for an extension if your program is more than a month away. You may receive emails in
the meantime reminding you to pay. Sometimes we have office workers check on payments and they don't find the email asking for the extension. If so, please kindly reply to those emails to let him know that you received an extension.
There is no fee for switching weeks. There must be space in the new week to accommodate a switch.
In the event of a need to cancel, we will try to work with you to transfer to a different week with availability.
If you need to cancel and can find a replacement,
you may request that we substitute the new camper in for
the one originally registered.
This avoids any loss even of administrative fee, but you are responsible
for dealing with the exchange of money to transfer the spot.
This transfer only works if we have space for the new camper in the correct age & gender cabin.
Discounts are applied after you register because of the technical limitation that we can only apply a discount to a camper in the system. You may defer payment and email us to apply your referral discount so that you can pay the right amount. If you overpay because of a discount, simply email and we can refund your payment partially to achieve the correct balance.
