+ How do I pay for a camp?

We will soon be able to allow individuals and families to use PayPal to register for classes directly from our website. But for right now, please contact April for information on how to pay online, or simply mail paper checks or money orders (made payable to "Camp Tonkawa") to:

Camp Tonkawa
1036 County Road 203
Collinsville, TX 76233

+ Can I use a credit card?

Sadly, no. Once PayPal is available, it will allow you to use a credit card, but we're not yet equipped to handle credit card transactions directly.

+ Can I pay using PayPal?

PayPal can be used only for payments in full, and only for individuals and families. Large groups, scouting troops, etc. cannot use PayPal. Also, if you're receiving a discount or group rate you cannot use PayPal at this time. Payment by PayPal is only for camps that have met the minimum number of campers required in order to hold the camp. You must call April at 940-440-8382 for verification before you pay with PayPal. If you pay with PayPal without first checking the status of the camp, you will be issued Camp Credit toward another camp.

+ Where do I send my payment and permission slips?

Please make checks or money orders payable to "Camp Tonkawa." You may mail permission slips, or you can scan them instead and email the forms to april@camptonkawa.org.

+ What is your deposit and refund policy for individuals?

Half of the price of the camp or event is a nonrefundable deposit. Full payment is due 14 days prior to the start of the event, or at the time of the booking if the event is less than 14 days away. In case of attendee-initiated cancellation, 50% of the amount paid (less the nonrefundable deposit) will be refunded if you cancel 29 to 15 days prior to the event date. If you cancel on the 14th day before the event date, 25% of the amount paid (less the nonrefundable deposit) will be refunded. Because supplies and materials will be purchased at that time, no refunds will be given for a cancellation within 14 days of the event start date.

+ How do groups register?

Fill out the registration form for your group. Please see the FAQ regarding the deposit and refund policy for large groups or the deposit and refund policy for troops/small groups below; your deposit will vary with the size of the group. Deadlines for remaining balances are listed in the deposit policies of the FAQ. Mail the deposit with the registration form to secure the date for your group.

Bring the Permission Slips to camp with you or email them prior to your arrival, one per family group.

Forms and deposits should be sent to:

Camp Tonkawa
1036 County Road 203
Collinsville, TX 76233

+ What is your deposit and refund policy for large group events?

For Girl Scout Service Unit or similar multi-troop events: $50 nonrefundable deposit per troop at time of booking. Full payment is due 45 days prior to start date of the event. In case of attendee-initiated cancellation, 50% of amount paid (less the nonrefundable deposit) is refunded if you cancel 30 or more days prior to the event date, and 25% of the amount paid (less the nonrefundable deposit) will be refunded if you cancel between 30 to 15 days prior. No refunds after 14 days prior to the event.

+ What is your deposit and refund policy for troops/small groups?

Troops/small groups: $100 nonrefundable deposit at the time of booking. Full payment is due 30 days prior to start of the event. In case of attendee-initiated cancellation, 50% of the amount paid (less the nonrefundable deposit) is refunded if you cancel 29 to 15 days prior to the event date, and 25% of the amount paid (less the nonrefundable deposit) will be refunded if you cancel 14 days to the event. No refunds after 14 days prior to the event.

+ Can I use PayPal for scouts, discount, or group rates?

Not yet.

+ What is your inclement weather policy?

Camps and events go on, rain or shine. We only cancel in the event of severe weather, as defined by the National Weather Service for Collinsville, Texas. In the event of a cancellation due to severe weather, we will work to reschedule your event or camp.

In case of horsemanship camps, we reserve the right to cancel in the event of rain. Our decision to cancel will be made the day before the event. In the event of a cancellation due to severe weather, we will work with you to reschedule your event.
