Step 1: Submit Your Application

Submit your application through CampInTouch, our online booking system.
If you need assistance with the process please contact Leslie Hunter, Associate Director of Enrollment, or call 207-656-1065.

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.

Please Note

A fully completed registration form, director approval, and a deposit is required to hold a program space. Deposits are non-refundable.*

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.

Refunds: A full refund, less deposit, will be given if the participant withdraws prior to May 15. The family is responsible for the entire tuition if the participant withdraws after May 15, arrives after their program begins, or leaves their program early, even if due to illness, injury, or behavioral issues, the tuition will not be refunded. In the case of illness or injury, however, 50 percent of the remaining prorated balance may be credited to another program the following summer. Alternate programs are not available if a participant is unable to continue in the program for which they registered. If you have any questions, please consult with the Program Directors. Contact us for more information.

Dismissals: We reserve the right to send home, without tuition reduction or refund, any participant who does not comply with Camp Chewonki expectations and standards. If a participant arrives with undisclosed physical or mental health conditions or history, we reserve the right to send home that participant, without tuition reduction or refund.

COVID-19 Cancellation Policy Addendum: we reserve 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.
