Step 1: Submit Your Application
Step 2: Await Confirmation
Submitting an application form online does not automatically enroll your child in a Chewonki program. Once your application has been received, we will review it for appropriate program placement. Please note that we may contact you with questions to ensure the most appropriate program placement for your child or to make you aware of a waiting list for the program.
Step 3: Receive Enrollment Confirmation
Once we have made a program determination and have processed your deposit, you will receive an acknowledgement letter formally welcoming your child to the program. In this letter, you will receive links back to our website for more information on getting your child ready for their Chewonki experience. Families intending to apply for financial aid will be sent a separate email at this time with instructions for applying and a link to our third-party financial aid service.
Step 4: Make Tuition Payments*
Our payment schedule is as follows:
- February 1 – half balance due
- May 1 – remaining balance due
Please call our business office at (207) 656-5891 if you have any questions about tuition payment.
Withdrawals: A full refund, minus the advance deposit, will be given if a participant withdraws prior to May 15. The family is responsible for the entire tuition if the participant withdraws after May 15, arrives late for camp or leaves early. If a participant leaves a program early due to illness or injury, the tuition will not be refunded. However, 50% of the remaining prorated balance may be credited to another program for the following summer. Alternate programs are not available if a participant is unable to continue in the program for which they are registered. If you have any questions, please consult with the program director.
COVID-19 Cancellation Policy Addendum: Chewonki reserves the right to cancel, delay, substitute, or revise any program itinerary due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If Chewonki cancels programming prior to summer due to COVID we will refund tuition, including advance deposits. Families will be given an opportunity to have those funds carried over to 2022, obtain a refund, and/or donate a portion to Chewonki.
If your child is sent home after arriving at Chewonki COVID-free we will pro-rate and refund tuition paid from the date of departure. Families will be given an opportunity to have those funds carried over to 2022, obtain a refund, and/or donate a portion to Chewonki.
