For all camps: cancellations made within two weeks of the program will be charged in full for the program and no refunds will be provided.

Mote reserves the right to cancel or modify any program or schedule. Modification of a program schedule by Mote does not constitute grounds for a refund.

Mote Camp staff continuously monitor weather and other water-related conditions that may impact the well-being of our participants, staff and volunteers. Families will be notified via email if camps are cancelled due to inclement weather (i.e. a hurricane). Refunds are only given if Mote cancels a camp and will be prorated if the camp is not cancelled for the entire week. In the event of other environmental factors (such as red tide), camps will not be cancelled but activities may be altered. Mote Camp reserves the right to change camp activities for the health and safety of participants. This does not constitute grounds for a refund.

About Florida red tide: This type of harmful algal bloom is caused by the naturally occurring, microscopic, plant-like organism Karenia brevis. Florida red tides produce toxins that can irritate the skin, eyes and throat of people on shore and in the water. The toxins can also affect the breathing of some people. People with severe asthma or chronic lung conditions should avoid areas with active red tides. Red tide-focused health information and resources are here.

Please refer to your confirmation email for our camp behavior policy.
