Summer Program Policies

Ridgefield Academy and Landmark Preschool plan to conduct a full six-week summer program on campus and plan to be outside often so that children can explore and enjoy outdoor activities with their friends. While we recognize that the pandemic has required a fluid approach to planning, we remain optimistic for another great summer experience in 2022.
 
Registration
A $25 registration fee along with 25% of your total program charges are due at the time of registration. These charges are nonrefundable. If you are registering on or before April 1, the $25 registration fee will be waived and you will only be charged 25% of your total program charges. Prior to camp, an invoice reflecting the balance of your camp fees will be sent to you and must be paid on or before May 1, 2022. Registrations received after May 1, will require payment in full upon registration.
