Camp Enrollment Information
The tuition bill and camp paperwork will be posted to your parent portal on April 1, 2016. The tuition, fees, and emergency card are due May 1, 2016 Checks should be made payable to Green Acres School. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are accepted.
Campers whose tuition and fees are not received by May 1, 2016 will be subject to withdrawal from Camp. Other than financial aid and extreme hardship cases, no payment plans will be approved.
Green Acres School Summer Camp reserves the right to dismiss, without tuition refund, any camper whose conduct is inappropriate or unsafe. Green Acres School Summer Camp reserves the right to cancel any program or service for insufficient enrollment. In such cases, tuition payments would be refunded. Green Acres School Summer Camp reserves the right to make substitutions of and/or changes to the activities offered.
Tuition grants are available and determined by financial need and availability of funds. To ensure objectivity, Green Acres School subscribes to the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS). This service requires parents to send a Parents Financial Statement (PFS) with a small application fee. Based on the Parents Financial Statement, SSS considers total income, assets, number of dependents, age of parents, retirement provisions, and extraordinary expenses to calculate a family’s discretionary income. In situations of separation or divorce, each parent is required to complete all forms separately. All information is treated confidentially. A complete financial aid application requires the following forms and documents submitted by the deadlines below. You may contact the Camp Office for a fee waiver if you are unable to pay the application fee.
By March 1, 2016:
2. Complete the Parents Financial Statement (PFS) from School and Student Services (SSS). The Green Acres’ code is 3505. All parents/guardians must complete this form. If parents are divorced or separated, each parent/guardian must complete their own PFS. Please submit the form online athttp://sss.nais.org/parents. See the following SSS instructions.
3. Upload a copy of your 2014 Federal Tax Return (including schedules) and copies of all 2014 & 2015 W-2s and/or 1099s to the SSS website.
4. Upload a copy of IRS Form 4506-T to the SSS website (not the IRS). Do not send any money with this form.
Note: If you are already submitting SSS, tax return and 4506-T forms to Green Acres School for the 2016-2017 school year, you DO NOT need to also submit them for camp. You will need to still submit the Green Acres School Summer Camp Financial Aid Request Form.
The deadline for submitting financial aid requests is March 1, 2016. Only completed applications will be considered for financial aid. Notification will be made with the tuition bills on April 1, 2016. Families seeking camp financial aid must re-apply for camp financial aid each year.
If new applications for a particular age group exceed the spaces available for new campers, a waitlist of up to 15 campers will be maintained.
In order to be on the waitlist, the application and deposit must be submitted to the Camp Office and a letter confirming the waitlist spot will be emailed back to the applicant.
Openings can occur at any time before May. Once you are offered admission to Camp from the wait list, your deposit is NOT refundable. Those families remaining on the waitlist as of May 2, 2016 will be given priority status for the 2017 camp year. Camp tuition deposits submitted by check are held (not cashed) until a camp opening occurs for the waitlisted camper. Camp tuition deposits paid by credit card will be refunded if the camper is not offered a spot. You may remove your name from the waitlist at any time prior to an offer of a camp slot and your tuition deposit will be returned to you.
Should you need to withdraw your camper from Green Acres School Summer Camp, you must do so in writing. Your deposit of $250 cannot be refunded. If you withdraw after May 2, 2016 and before June 2, 2016 you will be responsible for fifty percent of your tuition. After June 1, 2016 you will be responsible for the full tuition.
