School Year FAQs
What about Health and Safety?
Tom Sawyer Camps follows all the Day Camp Health Orders issued by the City of Pasadena and Los Angeles County. Campers should not come to camp if they are not feeling well. Campers and staff will have a daily health screening and temperature check, wear a face covering, practice physical distancing and regularly wash hands. For specific protocols click the blue banner at the top of the page.
What happens if it rains?
Since we are 100% outdoors, occasionally we cancel program due to rain, poor air quality or heavy winds (especially horse programs). We will always notify you as soon as possible if this happens. Please remember to always send your camper in weather appropriate attire.
What if I need to reschedule/cancel?
Rescheduling: There is no charge for rescheduling sessions.
Cancellations: Receive a full refund minus the $25 non-refundable deposit if you cancel prior to your session start date. Cancellations should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with as much notice as possible.
Once a session has begun there are no refunds. If your camper cannot attend because of an extended illness or accident, a pro-rated account credit or refund will be issued at the discretion of the Director. Proof of illness by written statement of a licensed physician may be required for any type of credit or refund offered by camp.
What if camp has to close?
If the camp must close by order of the State of California, Los Angeles County or City of Pasadena Health Department, you will receive a full prorated refund less the $25 non-refundable deposit.
