FIELD TRIP IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The Enrollment Forms include Field Trips and pricing information. Typically 50 – 65 % of campers attend the Field Trips. Campers who do not attend the Field Trips will stay at the facility and enjoy the scheduled activities for that day. Field Trips are an additional activity and require an additional fee. The fee includes admission, busing, and extra staffing needed to ensure all campers’ safety.
Field Trip Policies
We cannot, under any circumstances, add campers to the trips on the day of the trip.
Campers attending Field Trips must arrive at camp by 9:00 am. No Exceptions!
Campers who arrive after 9:00 am cannot attend the trip that day and will not be refunded or receive credit.
This policy is for all trips that leave the building.
Campers can only attend trips with their specific grade.
The deadline to guarantee enrollment for Field Trips is April 20, 2023. At this time, we order the buses based on the number enrolled. We will continue to take enrollments until the buses are full. We will list any trips that are full on the camp website.
Field Trips must be paid in full by April 20, 2023. You can pay by check, cash, MO, or we will automatically run your credit card on file on April 20, 2023, for all trips you have selected.
After April 20, 2023, all Field Trips must be paid in full at the time of enrollment.
There are no refunds, credits, cancellations, or substitutions if you miss your Field Trip for any reason.
Parents are not permitted to attend Field Trips with our camp. Our policy is for the safety of your child, as well as the other campers.

CANCEL/ADD FIELD/SWIM TRIPS
If you do not want your child to attend a Field Trip they are scheduled to attend, you must fill out the Field Trip Cancellation form located on our website and at the camp front desk. You can cancel until 9:00 am on the day of the trip. After 9:00 am our trip list is set, and we are unable to make any changes. If we do not have a signed form from the camper’s parents/guardian by 9:00 am, they will have to attend the trip. You will not be credited or refunded if you remove your child from a Field Trip for any reason.
If you would like to add a Field Trip to your child’s schedule, go to the Bulletin Board on our website and see if the trip is listed as full. If it is not, simply fill out a Schedule Addition Form and submit it. These are located on our website and at the check-in desk. Additions must be submitted by 9:00 am on Wednesday for the following week’s trips. We will approve additions based on availability. After April 20, 2023, all Field Trips must be paid in full at the time of enrollment.
Cancellation of Field/Swim Trips by XL Mount Laurel
Occasionally, we will cancel a Field or Swimming Trip if we believe the weather is unsafe or if there is some other unforeseen reason. We will make the decision by 9:00 am on the day of the trip and will send out an email notification. If for any reason a Field/Swimming Trip is canceled:
Where possible, we will provide the camper with the entry ticket to the Field Trips destination. No refund or further compensation will be provided.
If this is not possible, we will apply the amount paid as a credit towards the camper’s upcoming tuition charges. If the camper has paid in full or the trip is canceled during your child’s last week of camp, a credit will be applied to the camper’s camp account in DASH. This DASH credit will not expire and can be used towards any future XL program. No refund or further compensation will be provided.
