PAYMENT AND CANCELLATION POLICIES


At the time of registration, a $250 deposit per program is required to save a registrant’s spot. This deposit is fully refundable through March 1, 2022.

Full payments are due by April 5, 2022 and after that day, payments are non-refundable and non-transferable. All payments made after this day are subject to a $75 late fee.

Due to the popularity of our Summer Experiences and to prevent disruption to program planning late in the season, no refunds or transfers will be issued after the final payment deadline date. This policy applies to cases of homesickness, dismissal, and voluntary withdrawal.

For BBYO International Immersive Experiences:  After participants make their initial $250 deposit, they will have the option to pay the outstanding funds either by credit card or e-check. If a credit card is chosen, participants will be charged a 3% fee that BBYO incurs from the credit card companies. This fee is non-refundable. There is no fee, however, if participants pay their balance by e-check. For additional questions, please contact  [email protected].

PAYMENT PLAN
For CLTC, ILTC, Kallah, and Camp BBYO, the payment plan is as follows:

  • A $250 deposit is due at the time of registration

  • Half of the payment is due by March 1, 2022

  • Final payment is due by April 5, 2022

We are glad to accept registrations initiated after the final payment deadline. In these cases, fees  must be paid in full within 15 days. If teens register within 15 days of the start of their summer program, their balance must be paid in full before they arrive.


HEALTH AND SAFETY

COMMITMENT TO SAFETY
The well-being of our participants is our number one focus, and we treat every participant as a member of our own family. Safety and security always come first.

We'll be sharing detailed information for summer 2022 as it becomes available.
