Dear 2020 Summer Camp Registrants,

First and foremost, on behalf of the Stanford Athletics Department we wish your family health and safety during these unprecedented times. 

As you know Santa Clara County issued a Shelter in Place Order that is in effect until at least May 3.  Because of the uncertainty surrounding our country’s efforts to combat the progression of the Novel Coronavirus, Stanford University has made the decision to cancel all 2020 residential summer programs.  This means that the residential portion of all summer camps has been canceled.  We regret the disruption this change may cause you, but this action was taken by Stanford in the interest of the safety of participants, and the community.  This decision was made now to allow registered participants as much time as possible to alter travel plans, an opportunity that might be lost if we waited until close to camp start dates.

Although the residential portion of camps has been canceled, there’s still a possibility that day camps may continue. No decision has yet been made regarding conducting day camps and, unlike residential camps, those decisions can be made closer to the scheduled camp start date.  Some sports may decide to convert a scheduled residential camp into a day camp.  Those decisions will be made on a sport by sport basis, and information for the camp for which you registered should be posted on your sports website within the next week or so.

If you are interested in a refund of your camp fee, please directly contact the specific sport through its website.  You will receive a full refund if requested.  If you are interested in possibly attending a day camp if it is offered, you can wait until decisions about day camps are made, and at that time request either a partial refund (of the portion attributable to the residential portion of a camp if a day camp takes place), or a full refund if no day camp is offered.  Waiting to see if a day camp is offered will not affect your ability to receive a refund in any way.  

We are all making adjustments in our lives, and we thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate through this evolving situation. It is our sincere desire that we will have the opportunity to see your family this summer, and provide your children an opportunity to grow both athletically and personally.
