EXCEPTION: Schools and agencies that indicate they are covering tuition for an accepted student should fill out the vendor payment form (included in the acceptance packet) to arrange payment. If the school or agency is using a purchase order, they will not be required to meet the pre-program payment deadline and will be invoiced. They will need to submit a copy of the purchase order and the purchase order number with the vendor payment form by the deadline date of June 30th.
REFUNDS: Up until the start of Horizons program, full refunds of payments are possible. All refunds will be disbursed starting in the month of August.
If accepted, there are a limited number of partial summer camp scholarships available.
