Even with the best intentions, sometimes things get in the way of your Scouts’ coming to camp. Family emergencies and medical emergencies can stop even the most diehard Scout from completing Swimming Merit Badge and singing songs at campfires. Things happen and Ockanickon recognizes this. So, while unable to protect your Scouts’ and Scouts’ Parents time investment in camp, there is an option to protect the financial investment. By teaming up with TravMark, a leisure insurance specialist, parents can now purchase protection against their child’s inability to attend Summer Camp. This coverage does not include everything. If your Scout suddenly doesn’t want to go to camp or is restrained by certain obligations like Summer School this coverage will not take effect. Please read the TravMark Policy Specifics Here to get exact details as to what is covered and what is not. (TravMark Cancellation Insurance Program Details) Additionally, this coverage extends to emergencies that happen while a covered Scout is in camp such as medical evacuation and also covers lost and stolen personal items.
If a parent chooses to invest in a policy with TravMark, that parent will need the following information:
- The dates of the protected Scout’s stay
- Organization Name: Ockanickon
- Organization ID: ocka11
- Program Name: Summer Resident Camp
If you or a parent have questions about this program, please do not contact Ockanickon but TravMark’s Mark Ceslowitz at 800.358.0779 x221 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that this program in not administered in any way by Ockanickon Scout Reservation. This is not an exception to Ockanickon’s no refund policy nor does this program constitute a subrogation for camp fee payment.
