If cancellation notice is received at least 21 days prior to the start of a program, a refund will be given less an administrative fee of 25%. If notice is received less than 14 days prior, no refund will be made. If the KVR cancels a program, there will be a full refund. Scholarships are available for financially disadvantaged students. Contact the KVR for more information. Confirmation of registration will be emailed within a week of receipt of your registration. Registration implies permission for photos to be used on the KVR website or other publications (student’s name will not be used) unless the KVR receives notification in writing prior to the program.





Camps fill quickly.  On the registration form, green camp dates indicate available space in camp. Red camp dates indicate camp is full and we are maintaining a waiting list. If enough children sign up for a waiting list, we will make every effort to offer a second session of that camp, so be sure to put yourself on the waiting list of the preferred camp. 
If you choose to be on a waiting list, please do not pay for that camp until we contact you to confirm enrollment.

Scholarships available.
