Camp FAQs

Camp Registration

List of 9 frequently asked questions.

  • How do I register for camp?

    Visit our registration portal to complete your online application and submit your tuition payment. Completed registration forms and fees for all JRA programs are due in full prior to the start of each program. Early registration is encouraged, as program sizes are limited.
  • How can I tell what is my child registered for?

    When you registered you received an attached invoice that outlines the programs your family is registered for. You can log back in to the registration platform at anytime to update family information and view current registrations.
  • What is the deadline for registration?

    You can register for JRA Camps until 5 p.m. on the Thursday before a session starts (pending availability). Pending camp availability, registrations after the Thursday 5 p.m. deadline are subject to a $50 late registration fee. Please contact our camp office via telephone (772 492-2106) to inquire about late registration availability for a particular camp. Unfortunately, in the interest of keeping campers safe and due to camp logistics, we are not able to accept same-day on-site registrations.  
  • Many camps fill their enrollments very early in the Spring. How do I know if a camp is full already and how does the waiting list process work?

    If you are trying to register online and a camp is full, the system will notify you that you are being placed on a waiting list. If you are placed on a waiting list, no payment is required. If space becomes available in the camp your child is waiting on, the Jolly Roger Adventures Team will call you to see if you would still like to fill the opening or if you would prefer to pass the opening to the next person on the waiting list.
  • My camper will not be able to attend the full week of camp, is that OK?

    Because our camp curriculum builds upon itself over the course of a week, we do not recommend campers missing days of camp. That said, we understand that summer schedules can be very busy, so if your camper needs to miss a portion of a camp program, we can accommodate that. We cannot, however, prorate the cost of camp programs, and we are not able to offer makeup days for missed portions of camp.
  • I’m on a waitlist; what happens if a space becomes available for my camper?

    If a space becomes available for your camper, you will be contacted by our office and you will be given an opportunity to enroll in the program. 
  • What is your cancellation/refund policy?

    Cancellation requests that are submitted in writing by May 1 are eligible for a full tuition refund minus a $50 cancellation fee per camp enrollment. Tuition is nonrefundable after May 1. Camp fees cannot be refunded or prorated for missed days, including unexpected absences.
  • Can I transfer to a different JRA camp?

    Pending availability, you can transfer your camper's enrollment to another JRA camp by submitting your request via writing to Tuition differences from one camp to the next will be applied to your credit card on file, and a $10 fee is applicable for each transfer. Transfers are not available after 5 p.m. on the Thursday before your camp week. 
  • Is financial aid available for Jolly Roger Adventure Summer Camps?

    At this time, financial aid is not available for Jolly Roger Adventure Summer Camps.
