Read our most frequently asked questions for our Priority Registration discount period, the best discount of the year!
Why should I do the Pay-in-Full Priority Registration discount, and how do I enroll?
This is the largest savings opportunity of the year and will be the only discount available for Session 3, one of our quickest sessions to fill. In order to register, visit the “Enroll Now” link on our website and use your CampInTouch login to sign your camper up. Don’t have a CampInTouch login? It only takes minutes to create one! For our returning families, your camper’s information auto-fills from last summer, so it’s quick and easy. The discount will be applied on the final discount page, and tuition payment in full will be taken. Our team will send a confirmation email when this process is complete.
Is this a returning family discount only?
Although our returning families do receive the earliest notice for this discount, we are allowing the discount to be extended to all families, new and returning, who enroll from now until October 23rd and pay tuition in full. Tell your friends and family!
What if our summer plans change?
We get it; it’s difficult to know what plans are for next month, let alone next summer! That is why we offer quite a bit of flexibility with this discount. The best part? All monies paid are fully refundable through March 15, 2024, so you have plenty of time to figure out schedules. We recommend securing your child’s space in the session you think will work best or may waitlist first, and switch if needed. If you need to switch your child’s session, you can do so by calling or emailing our office at any time. As long as you lock in the discount, it can transfer over to any other session (provided space in the new session is still available). We always recommend reserving the session that you think you will want your camper to attend, or the session that is likely to fill first.
My family is unable to pay in full at this time, but we would still like to reserve a space to avoid being on the wait list. Can we do this?
Absolutely! While the Priority Registration discount is a pay-in-full by October 23rd discount,
you may choose to reserve your child’s space now with a $500 deposit (per camper, per session) and opt-out of the Priority Registration discount. We offer flexible payment plans, with payment in full not due until June 3rd, 2024. In order to enroll with a deposit only, families must speak with a member of the camp office team (either phone call or confirmed email) prior to submitting their camper application; the default option for the camper application system is for the Pay-in-Full discount registration, so all applications submitted from October 3-24 will be treated as Priority Reg (pay-in-full discount) unless we are told otherwise by the enrolling family member.
Am I completely paid in full once my Priority Registration is complete?
To secure the priority registration discount, only tuition payment is required in full. Optional additional charges such as round trip bus transportation ($260 round trip from Los Angeles, Orange County, or San Francisco), camp store account credit (recommended $160 for two weeks, or $115 for one week), and yearbook ($65) are not included. These will be automatically added to your invoice, which is due June 3rd, 2024. You may adjust any of these items by contacting our camp office team.
What if my family needs to cancel after March 15th?
We highly recommend that families consider purchasing trip or camp protection insurance, as no refunds will be given after March 15th, due to the majority of our supplies being purchased and staff being hired. For the most flexibility, we suggest looking into a program such as Program Protector offered by MH Ross or another trip insurance option. River Way Ranch Camp does not offer insurance directly. Please evaluate each insurance plan carefully and determine which plan is the best fit for your circumstances. If you have questions about the plan options, please call MH Ross directly at 833-297-2258. You may also choose to purchase your insurance from another company.
