Deposit and Tuition Payment Information

At the end of the application process you will be asked to specify your preferred payment method for the DEPOSIT and your preference for the future TUITION INSTALLMENTS. The choices are Check, eCheck Bank Draft and Credit Card. (see below)

You may pay the deposit one method, and select another payment method for the remaining tuition. This is explained on the application.

Check: For families electing to pay by check, you can mail it to PO Box 98, Tuxedo, NC, 28784. Please contact the office for UPS or FedEx delivery options. The deposit is due with the application. If you select to pay the remaining balance by Check, you will be billed for two installments due on January 15th, 2014 and April 1st, 2014.

eCheck Bank Draft: For families electing to pay by eCheck Bank Draft you will be asked to enter your checking account information (including your routing number and account number). If you elect to pay the $750.00 deposit via eCheck, your account will be drafted for the deposit within 72 hours of submitting the application. If you elect to pay the remaining tuition via eCheck you will be billed for two installments, and your account will be drafted for the installment amount on January 15th, 2014 and April 1st, 2014.

Credit Card: Falling Creek now accepts credit cards as a payment option, however, a surcharge will be applied to any deposit and tuition payments made by credit card. The surcharge is per deposit and per tuition installment. The surcharge is non-refundable and does not count toward any camper balances.

Credit card payments are offered as a convenience and you may certainly always make payments via eCheck ACH bank draft or mailed check to avoid the surcharge. See the application terms and conditions for the surcharge amounts.

If you elect to pay the deposit via credit card will be charged for the deposit and the deposit surcharge within 72 hours of submitting the application. If you choose to pay the remaining tuition by Credit Card you will be billed for two installments, and your card will be charged for the installment amount plus the applicable credit card surcharge on January 15th, 2014 and April 1st, 2014.

Applications will not be considered complete until we receive your $750.00 deposit.

If your son is placed on a wait list, the deposit is fully refundable at any time you wish to come off of the wait list. If you paid the deposit via credit card, however, the surcharge is non-refundable.

Camp Store Deposit

The final April 1st tuition installment will include an additional $60.00 (one or two week session) or $80.00 (three or four week session) camp store deposit. The amount covers incidental purchases such as water bottles, toothpaste, stamps, t-shirts, and post cards. No food or beverages are sold. The unused portion of the deposit will be refunded at the end of the camp session.
