Camp Refunds – If you need to cancel prior to 4 weeks of your week beginning, we can issue a full refund with no cancellation fees. Within 4 weeks of your week beginning and at least 48 hours notice, we can issue a makeup for future camp dates, if space is available. Please note that camp does sometimes sell out for certain weeks, so makeup dates are not always available and can be limited. We post on our website as soon as weeks sell out and will add you to a list of dates for makeups that become available. Within 4 weeks notice for cancellation if you are not available for a make up, we can issue a refund with a $100 cancellation fee. If you cancel with at least 2 weeks notice, we can issue a 50% refund. Cancellations 48 hours before your week begins, we do not issue refunds.
Scheduling – Students who sign up for a week come to camp consecutively for the week M-F. If students can not make camp everyday during the week, make ups are allowed during future camp days, if room is available and with at least 48 hours notice. Please note that camp does sometimes sell out for certain weeks, so makeup dates are not always available and can be limited. We post on our website as soon as weeks sell out and will add you to a list of dates for makeups that become available. We do not issue refunds for days missed that were reserved prior to camp starting. All students should complete their enrolled camp days before the summer is over to avoid losing the days completely. No make up camp days can be carried over into the new year.
Substitutions – We do allow substitutions prior to your student starting their week of camp and we do ask for at least 24 hours notice for any substitution with new name and email. Any payment arrangements must be handled outside of Summa Love processing, we will only substitute the student and do not issue a refund. Once the student starts camp for the week, we do not allow substitutions. We do not allow substitutions for multi week sign ups or sibling substitutions once the student starts their surf camp.
Communication- When signing your student up, please make sure your email is included and accurate. We send out a weekly email with important information 48 hours before the week of camp begins. We also use email to alert for weather events, time changes, and additional important information. Please check your email regularly and always before heading to camp.
Poor Weather – We will make the final call the morning of camp. If we cancel or delay camp, we will email everyone reserved and also post on the website on the bottom left of summalove.com with at least 2 hours notice. If we cancel camp, we issue a designated make up camp on the Sunday directly after the surf camp week. If you can not make the designated make up date, you will lose the day completely. No make ups will be permitted outside of the designated make up camp date. If thunderstorms hit 1/2 way through the surf camp, we evacuate the beach immediately and wait until the storm passes to resume surfing or we cancel completely and extend camp the next day for additional surfing time. Make ups will not be issued for thunderstorms/ weather related issues outside of our offered makeup or extended camp.
NOTE – WE OPERATE RAIN OR SHINE! Some of the best surfing conditions happen when it is raining. If rain is in the area with scattered showers and overcast skies, we will most likely be surfing with surf camp OPEN. We have plenty of wetsuits to keep the kids warm. If rain is heavy/drenching, it’s cold out and very windy with rough seas and the forecast calls for the whole day to be like that, we most likely will cancel. Year to year we only cancel surf camp due to poor weather 0-2 times the whole season! Just because rain is in the forecast does not mean we will cancel surf camp or lessons. If your student misses camp due to the weather and camp is ON, your student will not be given a makeup. Please send Summa Love and email with any absences.
Rip Tides – The ocean may also be too rough to run a surf camp with strong rip tides. We will email and post updates on the website if we need to cancel due to strong rip tides. Majority of the time if the surf is rough, we will not cancel and take the kids out 1 at a time with rotation closer to the beach. Camp counselors will make a collective decision about canceling camp if the surf is too rough.
