Is there financial risk when choosing an Overnight Camp or Teen Summer Program?

The financial risk can be a simple as “not getting what you paid for”. Or worse, not getting anything at all.

Unfortunately, we have heard of overnight camps closing and sending children home in the middle of the summer or not opening at all after the family has signed up and made the payment.

Sometimes after signing up and making payment, the course or program of your choice at is no longer available. Your child is heartbroken and disappointed. Securing a refund can be challenging at best. You may never receive any compensation. You are rightfully upset.

No Camp Expert family has ever experienced this catastrophic ordeal.


The Camp Experts & Teen Summers team provides you with the necessary due diligence to minimize risk for your family. The Camp Experts & Teen Summers team wants you to be able to sleep well at night.

As parents, you perform rigorous due diligence in selecting a safe and beneficial school for our children. The due diligence includes balancing the potential benefits and if you are sending your child to private school, the cost. As we all know, a high-quality education can be very expensive. Even if you are sending your child to public school there are costs such as tutors, expenses for sports and school trips, etc. With an experienced guide you can cut the potential risk.

Overnight summer camp provides the same beneficial opportunities as well as the risks. As a matter of fact, Overnight Summer Camp & Teen Summer Programs are an extension of the same educational process you are currently supplying for your children during the formal school year.

We would like to offer you a quote by a very important institution:

“I have a conviction that a few weeks spent at a well-organized summer camp may be of more value educationally than a whole year of formal school work.”

— Charlies Eliot, the 21st president of Harvard University

True, camp sessions are shorter in duration than formal school. Think of summer camp and teen summer programs as Private School in the summer. The risks are the same. We strive for a safe and rewarding environment for your child as well as balancing the costs and protecting your investment.
