Cancelation by Capitol Debate: All payments are nonrefundable. Payments referred to herein shall not be refundable under any circumstances, including but not limited to the termination of this Agreement for whatever reason. Should cancellation for reasons outside of our control become necessary which include but are not limited to host campuses canceling camps, compliance with local, state, and national regulations that require closure, pandemics, or acts of god (see Force Majeure clause), camper’s sole remedy shall be to receive credit to other Capitol Debate programs in the amount equal to the amount paid by such camper to attend program. Capitol Debate account credit will be provided for use up to 2 years from the final date of the program originally purchased. If the camp must be canceled, Capitol Debate has the right to make suitable accommodations including but not limited to holding the camp at another location, date or providing alternative camps in the future at no additional cost.
Force Majeure: In the event anything happens at camp or camp is cancelled, directly or indirectly as a result of an any act of god, natural disaster, inevitable accident, fire, strike, lockout, or other labor dispute, riot or other civil commotion, act of public enemy, enactment, rule, order or act of government or governmental instrumentality (federal, state or local), failure of the Facility, or other cause of a similar or different nature not within Capitol Debate’s control, Capitol Debate shall not be responsible in any way for anything whatsoever, including without limitation, death, injury, property, and travel. The aforementioned notwithstanding, with respect to a Force Majeure cancellation of the camp, Capitol Debate, in its sole and absolute discretion, may provide Campers with a comparable substitute event to attend as scheduled by Capitol Debate at the original location or a replacement location as determined in the sole discretion of Capitol Debate.
Consideration: Capitol Debate plans all year for the summer experience, and we incur huge costs before any student arrives for the first day of camp. We rely on the revenue that comes in throughout the year to cover all of our preparation expenses for camp. For example, our year-round staff are essential for planning the summer. They hire and train our summer staff, coordinate with the university, develop the program, design the curriculum, plan with our families, and take care of countless other essential projects in the winter months. Likewise, we have year-round rent payments, utilities, and many other large expenses. In return, campers receive early bird discounts below the full price in consideration of our credit only policy.
