Policies and Procedures:

 

Beehive

The Beehive is our camp store that sells snacks, clothes and souvenirs to campers on a pre-paid account basis. We recommend $30 per week of camp to be deposited into your camper’s account. Wilderness program participants may want to consider less. This money is also used for crafts your child may make in the craft shop, as well as for any fines that may accrue. Unused balances will be sent to parents by check in September. Please indicate your Beehive deposit amount on your registration form, and it will be added to your bill. At the end of the session, balances under $10 will not be refunded, but will be deposited into our camper scholarship fund.

Payment Policy

A $150 deposit payment is required to complete your registration. After you register and pay your deposit you will receive an e-mail confirmation. Final payment is due in full by May 15, 2014.

Cancellations

Once you have received confirmation of registration, your deposit is non-refundable. It is our expectation that campers who attend camp stay for the duration of their program.

Roommate Requests

We do our best to honor all roommate requests, but cannot guarantee them. Roommate requests are strictly limited to a chain of three friends, with no more than one year grade separation. To be honored, requests must be received no later than one week prior to the start of the camp session. 

Waiting List

Programs at HoneyRock fill fast, so it is important that you register early. If you register for a full program or session and cannot move to an open one, you will be put on a waiting list. As spots become available, we will fill them from the waiting list on a first-come, firstserved basis. Throughout the year you may check back to see if you have moved up on the waiting list. HoneyRock reserves the right to fill openings at their discretion and is not obligated to follow the typical waiting list order.

Transportation

HoneyRock provides free transportation TO camp from WI and IL pick-up locations. This includes bus pick-ups at Wheaton College, Schaumburg (except for June 16 and July 21), Rockford, IL and Madison, WI, and a pick-up at either the Rhinelander, WI (RHI) airport or the Mosinee, WI (CWA) airport. Bus transportation back to Madison, Rockford or Wheaton College will cost $75. 

New in 2014, HoneyRock is offering a pick-up in St. Louis, MO on June 23rd and 30th. A $75 fee applies to anyone riding the bus from St. Louis. There will be no return trip to St. Louis. We encourage all parents to attend Family Day and pick up their children at the end of the camp session. If your child is flying to/from camp please contact the airline for restrictions or additional fees.

Behavior Covenant

To ensure a safe and positive learning environment for every camper, HoneyRock has instituted a behavior covenant that must be signed by each camper and his or her parents or guardian. This document will be included in your Parent Information/Camper Forms Packet.
