Should I send my child with extra spending money?

This is at the discretion of the parent. Some parents will choose to send a modest amount for arcade games or gift shops depending on the destination. If you choose to send money, please keep the following in mind:

  1. Staff cannot hold or manage money for your child.
  2. Staff cannot be responsible for money that may be stolen, lost by your child or spent on or by other campers.
  3. There is no guarantee that they will get to spend the money. There will be cases that we may not allow gift shop or arcade visits, etc. based on trip circumstances such as overall group behavior, time constraints, etc.
