Unable to attend CAMP 2016? Good news! Your registration is transferrable. Please consider gifting your CAMP registration to someone who would not otherwise be able to attend and has requested financial assistance. To do so, contact Roxanne Foster at operations@jaws.org.
If you have to cancel your registration, you are eligible for a full refund before Oct. 15 and a partial refund (50%) if you cancel Oct. 15-30.

Failure to communicate with JAWS about your cancellation prior to the end of CAMP forfeits any refund you may have been eligible to receive.
