Coronavirus and WaQi Summer Camps

Dear friends and students,

We are continuing to closely monitor and evaluate developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health and government authorities in North Carolina, Pennsylvania and New York. Please rest assured, we will only hold camp if we believe it is safe. The CTQS-WAQI's highest priority is the health and well-being of all of our students, friends and instructors.

We are sure you are concerned about camp cancellations or postponements, and some of you may be hesitant to send in a payment for camp. In light of the current situation, these are our plans:

We will cancel the camp if local, state or national health officials recommend that we do so. We cannot say yet whether we will be able to reschedule for this year or whether we will have to delay camps until next year. If you have registered for camp, we will offer you two choices.

Choice 1:
If you allow us to hold your payment, we will guarantee your spot in that camp the next time it is scheduled.

Choice 2:
If you would prefer your money back, we will refund your payment. You would then have to register again for camp when the new dates are announced. If camp is rescheduled and you cannot make it for the new dates, you can request a refund and we will refund your payment in full. You do not have to make these decisions until we announce whether we are rescheduling camp or postponing until next year. We will let you know our decisions as soon as we make them.

We understand that the virus has caused some life changes that will make it impossible for some students to attend. At the same time, we would like to be able to offer available slots to people on the waiting list. For that reason, we would appreciate knowing your decision as soon as possible.

Below is our refund schedule:

If we cancel: We will issue you a full refund or offer you a credit towards the next camp.
If you cancel:
■ More than 1 month before camp: We will issue a full refund
■ Between 1 month and 2 weeks before camp: We will deduct a service fee of $75.00
■ Less than 2 weeks before camp: We will refund 75% of your payment.

This policy covers payments to WAQI, CTQS. we are working with the camp locations about their refund policy and will let you know as soon as possible.
