THE INS & OUTS
RESERVATIONS & DEPOSIT POLICY
Groups can book into Camp Lakewood several years in advance. Booking at least one year in advance is highly recommended, especially for groups wanting accommodations in May or October.
Due to non-profit status of the YMCA, a membership fee of $75 will be charged to each overnight group and $25 will be charged to each day group. This membership fee is an annual group fee and cannot be waived. Individual or family YMCA memberships cannot be applied to group memberships.
The required deposit amount is 25% of the estimated amount due. Reservations are not guaranteed without a signed contract AND a deposit. The deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE.
In the event of a cancellation, a 60-day notification is required IN WRITING, or the group is responsible for payment of the total estimated amount due.
The group leader will be responsible for the total bill, which will be mailed within 2 weeks of the departure date. The group leader will provide a guaranteed number of individual group members no later than 60 days prior to the arrival date. This will be the number of people the group leader is financially responsible for (with a 5% leeway).The $75 group membership fee and all other charges will be charged to the group bill unless other arrangements have been made.
The group leader will be responsible for all paperwork and arrangements and must adhere to the deadlines given. Any special requests must come from the group leader. The group leader is also responsible for distributing the necessary information to the individual group members (deposit deadline, policies, etc…).
We recommend making a copy of the second page (or even both pages) of the contract to distribute.
