ADTC Policies

Please be sure that you understand all of the information below for a worry-free overnight camp experience! Call 866-383-ADTC (2382) if you have any questions.

General Info: ADTC overnight dance camps are open to girls ages 8 - 17. The ADTC Counselor-In-Training ("CIT") program is open to girls ages 16 & 17 who have attended camp for a minimum of 2 prior summers. No dance experience is necessary to attend any ADTC dance camp.

Groups: Groups of four or more girls attending ADTC together qualify for an additional $100 OFF tuition per-camper. Seven or more girls attending ADTC together qualify for an additional $200 OFF tuition. Dancers do not have to attend the same ADTC session. 

Day Campers at Overnight Camps: We welcome day campers at ADTC overnight camps (though 99% of campers choose to stay overnight). Day campers must choose a meal plan. Day campers participate in all dance classes and activities with overnight campers from 8:45am warm-up through 9:30pm pick-up after all-camp night activities.

Space Availability: ADTC cannot guarantee space in any given camp session prior to receiving your online application. Registration is first-come, first-served.

Session Confirmation: Online applicants will receive confirmation of their registration via email within 30 minutes of submitting their application. If you do not receive an email within 30 minutes, please call 866-383-ADTC (2382).

Disclaimer: ADTC reserves the right to refuse an application and/or dismiss, without refund, any camper at any time for reasons which, in its sole discretion, are in the best interest of its business, campers and staff.

ADTC tuition includes all core dance classes & electives (4 - 5 classes per-day), our unique Friday Night Show and most on-site activities (team events, night activities, etc.) Rates are quoted on a per-session/per-family basis. If your family is sending two girls for one session each, you pay the two-session rate. All ADTC campers (both overnight & day) must pay in full by the deadline to receive the discounted rate.

Overnight campers must pay the "Room, Board" fee for their number of sessions. The "Room & Board" fee includes lodging, supervision and three meals per-day from Sunday night dinner through Saturday morning breakfast. The multi-week fee also includes Saturday night lodging & supervision between camp sessions, Saturday lunch & dinner, as well as Sunday morning brunch..

Day campers must pay the "Meal Plan" fee for their number of sessions. The "Meal Plan" fee includes three meals per-day from Sunday night dinner through Saturday morning breakfast. 

Multi-Week Overnight Campers: Multi-week campers are welcome to check-out with their parents (or another authorized person) on Saturday from 9 - 11am, but they must check back in on Sunday by 3pm. The majority of multi-week campers stay with us between sessions and participate in a Saturday field trip (like to a movie). Multi-week campers must confirm whether they will stay over with us & pay for the Saturday field trip at check-in.

Optional Activities Fees & Requirements: Please note that most optional activities require parental consent and/or additional fees (see above). Additional fees & waivers for optional field trips & activities requiring them will be detailed at check-in for your session - all campers register for activities during check-in.

Fees cover any necessary transportation, professional guides (where applicable) & supervision by ADTC staff certified in First Aid & CPR. Optional field trips generally take place during afternoon free time with the exception of a few evening offerings. Most activities are only offered once per week, though some are offered two or more times per week.

Note that there always are included (fee-free) activity options available to campers who do not participate in the optional field trips & additional fee activities. Also note that the activities described on website are subject to change (including price change) or cancellation without notice.

You may choose to open your daughter's Activities Account at registration to save on your total activities fees at camp. If you pay a $100 Activities Account deposit per-week at registration, you'll save 10% on total activities fees at camp. If you pay a $200 deposit per-week at registration, you'll save 20% on total activities fees at camp.

Due to weather, availability &/or scheduling conflicts, we may be unable to offer all activities during your daughter's session. Please note that if your camper does not report at her assigned time to participate in an activity for which she is registered, her participation fee is non-refundable. However, if an activity must be cancelled by ADTC (for example, due to weather), the activity fee will be refunded.

Once your session dates have been confirmed by ADTC, any desired changes or cancellations must be requested in writing by emailing Session changes are granted at the sole discretion of ADTC based on availability. If a change to another session cannot be accommodated, the camper may cancel according to the following policies:

  1. Prior to February 20: Any camp tuition paid is refunded.
  2. After February 20 & prior to April 20: Any camp tuition paid, less the $350 per-session deposit is refunded.
  3. After April 20 & up to 30 days prior to your camp session: 50% of the total tuition due will be refunded.
  4. No refunds can be given if a cancellation is within thirty days of the session start. No exceptions.
  5. No refunds can be given if a camper withdraws at any time after arriving at camp. No exceptions.
  6. There is no reduction of fees for late arrival or early departure. No exceptions.

By submitting an application, parents acknowledge that they have read the ADTC registration policies & terms and conditions, and understand and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions outlined therein regarding ADTC's payment requirements and deadlines, medical and insurance requirements, and refund restrictions. They further certify that all information given in the application and on subsequent required camper forms will be accurate and complete.

We also promise never to sell your information to anyone.

The terms "ADTC," "we" and "our" refer to American School of Dance, LLC (dba "American Dance Training Camp"), a California company, and a member of the American Camp Association, which offers and operates all the camps and services listed herein. All camps are offered subject to ADTC's standard terms and conditions, which are found in our Parent-Camper Handbook, Forms & Waivers, on our website here and by request. Please review the terms and conditions carefully prior to completing your registration. Some of these terms and conditions are set out below to draw your attention to the fact that our obligations to you are limited.

Cancellation by ADTC: ADTC reserves the right to cancel any camp at any time for any reason determined in our sole discretion, including if there are too few participants, or if the quality of the camp or the safety of participants is judged by ADTC to be compromised. In such a case, refund of payments received by ADTC shall constitute full and final settlement. In the event of cancellation, ADTC is not responsible for any loss incurred on account of non-refundable or non-transferable air tickets or other unrecoverable travel costs.

Preparing for Your Camp Session: Our camps entail risks - and rewards - beyond those encountered at home. We count on our campers to ensure they are healthy and fit; to read our pre-camp materials about clothing, training and medical requirements; and to appreciate that in some regions of the US and other countries, local living standards, practices, services and accommodations may differ.

Travel Documents & Passports: The visa and passport requirements of countries to which we travel vary according to the nationality of each traveller and may change at any time for reasons beyond our control. Although we endeavour to provide you with accurate information about these requirements, it remains the responsibility of each camper to verify that she has the appropriate travel documents for her nationality. ADTC is not liable for any expenses or costs arising from any camper being prohibited from entering a country scheduled to be visited on a trip.

External Travel Services: ADTC may recommend the services of external travel companies or other support services in response to requests made by campers for services outside the scope of an ADTC trip. Although we endeavour to recommend only companies that provide the highest levels of service and work closely with them to try to obtain special treatment for ADTC campers, we do not guarantee the services provided by third parties. ADTC is not liable for any injury, expenses or costs arising from any services, or lack thereof, provided by any third party nor the standards of care which travelers experience when using those services.

Health & Insurance: By registering for camp, you certify that you do not have any physical condition or disability that would create a hazard for you or other campers and that you have received all appropriate or necessary vaccinations indicated by your proposed camp. All campers must be covered by their own medical insurance. Prior to check-in, all campers must have on file a completed ADTC Registered Camper Form, which requires a physical examination by a licensed health professional dated no earlier than two years prior to attending ADTC. Required forms are available online here.

Limitation of Liability, Release & Indemnity: We strictly and expressly rely on each camper to read, sign and return our form by NO LATER THAN JUNE 1.
