Be Prepared

Your camper will have the best experience if they're prepared for everything the day brings. Our gear list can be found here. Feel free to contact us with any questions about necessary gear.

Program Expectations

On the first day of MOSS camp, instructors lead students in understanding expectations for safety and respect. If a student's behavior presents a concern for their safety or the safety and enjoyment of others, they may be removed from all or part of camp. In such cases, no refunds are issued and the student may be precluded from participating in future MOSS programs.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Cancellations made up to 31 days prior to the program start date will be refunded, minus a $50 processing fee. No refunds will be issued for “no shows,” withdrawals, illnesses, or cancellations made within 30 days of the program start date. If MOSS must cancel a program due to unforeseen circumstances or not meeting minimum enrollment, refunds will be issued to all registrants.
