Frequently Asked Questions & Policies
How do we register?
Registration is available online at www.vc.bc.ca/finnegansummer. If you are having technical difficulties, a printed form is available at the school’s Main Office (5400 Cartier Street). Full payment must be received in order to reserve a spot. Space is limited so we strongly recommend that you register and pay as soon as possible.
What happens if the participant has to miss some of the classes because of family commitment or schedule conflict?
Special circumstances may be taken into consideration provided our office is given advance notice.
Is there before or after-camp care?
We are unable to assist families with before or after camp care. However, for those registered in a morning and afternoon session, campers will be given time to have their lunch in order to attend the next camp.
Where do campers have lunch?
Campers can eat their packed lunch in an area within the school grounds (e.g. cafeteria or breezeway). Please note that the school cafeteria service does not operate in the summer months. Campers attending different morning and afternoon half-day camps will have a 30-minute lunch break coordinated by the teachers.
What if my child wishes to participate in a camp outside of their age group?
Please contact Finnegan Summer Director, Ryan Shams to see if special arrangements may be made.
Refunds are available if the withdrawal is communicated in writing at least 14 days prior to the start date of the camp. An administrative fee of $50 will be applied for camps $200 or more and $35 for camps less than $200. No refunds will be given if the withdrawal is made within 14 days of the camp start date except for medical reasons with a physician’s note.
Request to transfer from one camp to another will be accommodated provided a written request is made at least 14 days prior to the start of the camp. If the request is made within 14 days of the camp start date, the request will be handled on a case-to-case basis.
Should we need to cancel camps, we will do our best to communicate this as soon as a decision is reached. However, we reserve the right to cancel any camp up to 7 days prior to the camp start date. In such situations, a full refund will be processed accordingly.
We reserve the right to substitute a camp instructor for all Finnegan Summer programs than that listed in the camp offerings.
