Summer Leadership Camp Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) –
Q: My school is paying for part of my camp and it will only let me pay in full by credit card online?
A: Please choose the “BILL ME” option from the drop down menu (default is credit card). You may then send in your part by check or call (503.480.7208) with credit card. Your adviser must submit a school payment form in order to let us know what part they are responsible for. Ultimately, the registration is under your name and it’s up to you and them to communicate with us. We do not bill schools separately for camp.
Q: I chose “BILL ME”, when is my money due?
A: You must pay in FULL by June 8, 2017 in order to get early bird pricing and June 29th for regular pricing. You may pay in full online with credit card or mail a check to OASC, 707 13th St. SE, Suite 100, Salem, OR 97301. For partial payments, please call Sue Scott, 503-480-7206.
Q: How do I pay online with credit card later if I chose the “BILL ME” option?
A: Login at www.oasc.org once you are logged in, click on My Information then My Transactions. At this point you will see your registration and you will have the option to “pay open orders”. This option is only if you are paying the entire balance. Again, this must be paid by June 8th if early bird pricing and June 29th if regular pricing!
Q: When will I get a confirmation letter with directions, packing lists and emergency contact information?
A: This letter will be emailed to you shortly after June 12th. It will be emailed to the email you registered with and a copy will also be posted online.
Q: What is the OASC Summer Leadership Camp cancellation policy?
A: Registrants may cancel their spot with OASC Summer Leadership Camps until June 8th with no penalty and a full refund. After June 8th – campers are eligible for partial refund of camp cost minus $100 cancellation fee. No refunds are made after June 29th, 2017. Substitutions are encouraged. Cancellations must be made in writing by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If a camper fails to show up on July 9th or July 16th and no communication has been made, the full amount is non-refundable.
Q: Can I request a roommate? How are roommates selected?
A: OASC Leadership Camps strive to make our students as comfortable as possible. We staff our camps with compassionate and trained individuals to deal with a number of issues from homesickness to health issues. We are unable to accommodate rooming requests, and hope that our students see this as another opportunity to grow in their leadership skills. We attempt to room each student with someone from a different school and of similar grade. Students are often in the same hallway or near fellow classmates. Please do not pack as “pairs” or plan to share personal items. We would like each student to have an equal and amazing experience, and this policy assists us in creating this. If there is a medical or personal need that requires rooming attention, please contact OASC Director, Sara Nilles.
Q: What is your arrival and departure policy?
A: OASC camps are very dependent on the full experience to teach the ideals and lessons that we value. It is VERY difficult for students to arrive late or depart early, not only for the students themselves – but also the group dynamics that they leave behind. IN ALL CASES contact with OASC director and camp coordinators is imperative. Reduced camp rates due to partial attendance are not available.
Q: Can my student drive himself or herself to camp? (Transportation Policy)
A: Students are not required to have a parent or guardian present to check them in or out of camp. Many schools arrange for groups to travel together, with the ride responsibility split among family members of campers. Students may drive themselves and park their car on campus (in a designated area). Once their car is parked they are not allowed to go back and forth to their vehicle. It is NOT SUGGESTED that students drive themselves due to emotional and physical drain that students coming to camp will experience over the course of the time together. Vehicles parked on-campus are parked at their own-risk. OASC is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items during or after the camp schedule.
