Frequently Asked Questions
When will I know that my child's spot is confirmed?
Applications are processed upon receipt and a confirmation letter is emailed. The process maybe slowed down if there is a waiting list for that particular camp, or a problem with payment. If there is a waiting list for a given camp we will contact you before processing your application.
When do you send out the Pre-Camp Training Program?
The HMI Conditioning Program is sent out 4 weeks prior to camp.
Will my roommate request be honored?
We will try to accommodate all roommate requests provided the campers are the same age. We cannot guarantee this will be possible at all locations. Note that room assignments are done by the local Camp Director 1 week prior to the camp start date.
Can campers choose their own roommates?
Campers may request a roommate (see above).
How many campers are there per room?
At least 2 but it varies according to the facilities at each camp location.
Can I register my son/daughter over the phone?
Unfortunately, no. We need to have a completed application form with your signature on the Release & Indemnity form. Registration can be done online, by mail, or by fax.
If I am a U.S. resident sending my child to a Canadian camp, must I pay the camp fees in Canadian dollars?
Yes. All camp fees are payable in the currency of the country in which the camp is located.
What is a money order?
A money order is the equivalent of cash but is more secure because it's made out to the receiver, like a cheque. The funds are available to the recipient immediately so there is no delay in processing.
Is it possible to receive sponsorship for my child to go to camp?
Sponsorship is available for campers in certain situations. We request that campers with financial needs send in an application form along with a deposit for camp and a letter indicating their unique financial situation. Sponsorship will then be discussed and given depending on the funds available and amount of requests received for any given camp. Generally, sponsorship is given for up to half of the cost of camp. Please note that not all camp locations provide sponsorship. Generally, campers are not permitted to receive sponsorship for 2 consecutive years.
What happens if I need to cancel my child's registration?
HMI has a $70 non-refundable cancellation policy. This portion of the payment is refundable only in the case of medical injury and a physician's signature must be provided in such a case.
How do you process refunds?
Upon cancellation, we will issue a refund by cheque or credit card. If you so choose you may also donate the portion paid to the camp sponsorship fund and be issued a tax receipt for your donation.
