Acceptance and Participation
Rules for acceptance and partcipation in the program are the same for everyone regardless of religion, race, color, or national origin. Camp Susque does reserve the right to dismiss any camper who, by administration's judgment, consistently or grossly violates Camp Susque's regulations in a manner detrimental to the good or safety of any persons or property.

Cancellation Policy
Cancellations made up to and including March 31 are totally refundable. Cancellations made after March 31 must be made seven days prior to arrival. At that time, all monies except the deposit are refunded. If cancellations occur within seven days before the start of the Family Camp session, no monies are refundable.
