What is the cancellation policy if a child is sick etc?

  • Us at Minimakers understand that plans change, children fall ill, and sometimes attending a camp is not feasible anymore. That said, In order to make sure we can provide the best experience for everyone and in order to deliver on our promises we must secure instructors,
    materials, and facilities well in advance so we do not offer refunds for our programs. However, we can offer to exchange the missed camp for another current camp at our other locations, or for a camp in the future.
