Many times the fun and excitement of camp is interrupted by unfortunate circumstances such as a family emergency or sickness, bags are lost or stolen or you may need to cancel due to other unforeseen circumstances.
Charis Hills Camp continues to be committed to discovering new programs and options to increase value for our camp families. We are very excited to announce the availability of Program Protector. The Program Protector Protection Plans are now available for purchase during the online registration process.
Standard Plan F530S is 5% of your session fee, and includes a package of benefits including Program Cancellation and Interruption, Travel Delay, Medical Expense/Emergency Assistance, Baggage, Baggage Delay and more.
Enhanced Plan F530E includes all of the benefits of the Standard Plan plus a Cancel For Any Reason benefit that allows you to cancel your Program for any reason up to 2 (two) days before your scheduled departure, and pay your premium with or before the final payment for the Program.
