FAQS

Registration closes when sessions fill at a maximum of 125 campers or May 31st, whichever comes first. If participants register late, all pertinent camper information forms are due at the time of registration.
You are welcome to fill out a University Recreation and Wellness feedback form which is available at the Member Services Desk. You may also email your comments to mmires@umd.edu. We have received many wonderful suggestions that have been implemented in our programming, but please know that we may not be able to accommodate your request.
Registration is on a come-first served basis, and must be paid for as they occur. Early registrations are eligible for a discount within a specified date range. If you choose to register at a later date for additional sessions, the discount will no longer apply.
No. Camp activities are planned for all participants to enjoy on a daily basis. If you elect not to have your child participate, no fees will be credited for days not in attendance.
All required forms, including any forms specific to your child's needs, are due by May 31st, 2017. A late fee of $25.00 per camper will be assessed for all paperwork which is not turned in on time, or is incomplete. Any late fees charged to your account must be satisfied before your child can begin attending camp. Late registrants need to submit required forms upon registration. We are unable to provide a grace period.
A camper registration is not considered fully completed until the paperwork has been submitted. Your camper cannot attend camp until all paperwork has been turned in and reviewed by the Camp Director. The last date to turn in paper work without incurring a late fee is May 31st, 2017. No refund will be given for the missed day(s) due to incomplete records. To assist parents in meeting submission deadlines, we will provide several e-mail reminder notices regarding the due date and the status of submission. Please be sure the e-mail address used at the time of registration is accurate and checked frequently. Note that the information we are requesting is often mandated by the State of Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
We do not sponsor scholarships at this time, and will do our best to work directly with state or federal agencies as needed. Please refer any payment issues to Mary Mires 301-226-4409.
In order for your child to have the best camp experience possible, regular attendance is best. All children are placed in activity groups and irregular attendance makes it difficult for your child to bond with other group members. If your camper is dropped off after 9 am, then special arrangements will need to be made with the Assistant Director in advance. Activity Groups utilize a variety of campus venues, and your child will need to be escorted to the appropriate site upon arrival. This may result in a waiting time for the parent at drop off. More information on this can be found under the "For Parents" tab. Please note: TERP Quest is not responsible for parking violation fees.
We cannot distribute private information for campers. As an alternative, we can verify for you that a particular participant is currently registered. We will be happy to share your contact information with other camp families as a courtesy.
We cannot allow anyone who is not registered to participate, but you are welcome as a spectator. All site visitations can be arranged through the Assistant Director or Director. Our website is comprehensive and provides valuable information on the nature of our camp.
Personal items are not the responsibility of TERP Quest. Items left are done so at your own risk.
It is perfectly fine if you walk them inside, say your goodbyes, and drop them off at camp the first day, but we respectfully request that you do not remain on site for an extended period of time. If you have questions or concerns regarding this policy, please contact the Camp Director at mmires@umd.edu
