Summer Camp Deferred Payment Plans
Whitemarsh Township provides the option of deferring your camp payments into monthly payments at the time of your registration. Your total balance is divided by the amount of months between your registration date and August 1st. All payments must be made on the first of each month. Your first months balance is due at the time of registration.
Please note that there is a one-time administrative fee of $25.00 to utilize a deferred payment plan. This fee is added into your monthly payments. After a deferred payment plan is setup, no additional registrations may be added to the plan. One deferred payment plan per account.
Those individuals entering into the deferred payment plan agreement will solely be responsible for all payments until completion of the payment plan. Otherwise, the participant will be withdraw from the program.
Whitemarsh Township recognizes that there are some cases in which parental custody may be shared, or one person has been granted sole custody. The parent/guardian registering the child for a program, or entering into a deferred payment plan, is solely responsible for payment of the program. Any payments to be made between parents/guardians are to be handled outside of the Township payment plan process.
If your card expires or is declined on the first of the month, you have 7 business days to provide an alternative card for payment. Payments not received by the 8th day of the month will result in your child’s registration being removed from the program. If the decline occurs during camp operational months, your child will not be able to check into camp past the 8-day grace period.
