New Camp Policy: COVID-19 Update

With so much uncertainty in our lives, we’ve created more flexibility around our summer camp cancellation policy. From now until May 20, you may withdraw from any Catlin Gabel summer camps that you have registered for at no charge.

At this time, we are still planning on holding our first camp on June 22. We will make a final decision on May 20. If we have to cancel all camps due to COVID-19, all payments will be refunded in full.

  • Until May 20: No charge for withdrawing from a registered camp. No charge for changing camps.
  • On May 20: Catlin Gabel will announce whether Summer Camps will continue or have to be cancelled. All payments will be refunded in full if camps are cancelled.
