Summer at KEY Policies

Registration, Payments & Refunds

All families must register online through the Summer at KEY website. Registration will open to past camp and Key School families 48 hours before it opens to the greater community. Registrations are processed on a first come, first served basis. To create a new account, access an existing one, or make a payment, select the yellow "Register" icon that can be accessed throughout the website.

  • Registration for camp sessions and aftercare will close two Sundays (at 11:59 p.m.) before the start of each camp week. Registrations and changes to existing registrations will not be accepted after this time. Below are the closing dates for each week:

  • A non-refundable deposit of $100 for each full day camp and/or $50 for each half day camp is due upon registration. Deposits are required to reserve space and will be applied to the total cost of the camp. 
  • Final payments are due on or before June 1. If registering after June 1, full payment is due upon registration. Campers may not begin a camp if there is a balance due.
  • All payments are non-refundable after June 1. Refunds will not be given for any reason for cancellation or withdrawal, including changes in employment or residence, illness, vacation, or other issue. Lost payments cannot be carried over to next year’s summer program or transferred to a sibling's balance or another account.
  • Camp fees will not be prorated for partial attendance.
  • If your family needs additional time to pay, we do have payment plan options. To set up a payment plan, register for your camp(s) and make the deposit payment(s) to secure space in the camp(s). Then, contact the Camp Office at 443-321-2575 to discuss plan options. Payment plans must be established by June 1. Please keep in mind, in accordance with our refund policies, you are responsible the payment of all camps registered for by June 1 even if you withdraw from a camp at a later date.


Camps that reach capacity will move to a waitlist in the online registration system. Families have the option during the registration process to add to the waitlist once a camp fills.

  • Complete all of the information requested when adding to a waitlist. The camp will show a "Waitlisted" status once you have finished the process.
  • No payment is required for a waitlisted camp.
  • Should space become available, families will be contacted via email in the order in which they are recorded on the waitlist. Families will have 24 hours to accept the spot and will need to make the appropriate payment required to register.
  • You can add to a waitlist for a camp that has filled and also register for an available camp within the same week. You will be contacted as described above if a spot in the waitlisted camp opens.


Families can switch to an available camp session before the registration closing dates (see Registration section above) by completing a Change Request Form.

  • A $10 fee will be applied per camper each time a change is made to a registration and be automatically processed to the credit card on file.
  • The deposit or full payment made for a camp that is being dropped can be transferred to a new camp being added, but it cannot be transferred to an existing camp registration.
  • If switching to a higher priced camp after June 1, the difference in cost and the change fee will automatically be processed on the credit card on file.
  • If switching to a lower priced camp within two weeks of the start date, refunds will not be given for the difference, and additional charges beyond the change fee may apply.
  • Withdrawing from a camp completely before June 1 will result in the forfeiture of the non-refundable deposit and after June 1, forfeiture of the full payment. Payments lost due to withdrawl cannot be carried to next year's program or transferred to a sibling's balance or another account.


Summer at KEY is a “nut-restricted” camp. No foods containing any types of nuts are allowed. Please carefully check the labels on the foods you send in.

  • Sharing of food between campers is not allowed.
  • A camper's birthday is very special, and we understand children love to celebrate with friends. Unfortunately, due to safety protocols, campers will not be permitted to bring in food to share.
  • In accordance with our nut-free policy, all cooking themed camps utilize nut-free ingredients. Please understand that these camps incorporate a variety of food groups, and we cannot accommodate other restrictive food issues or allergies. We suggest you contact us before you register to discuss any other food allergies or restrictions that may be of concern.
