Final payments are due no later than June 1st. You may pay up front in one sum, or set up a payment plan. Paying with a credit card through our online registration system is easy and convenient. BCAP also accepts checks or money orders made out to "Brooklyn Public Library," which can be dropped off or mailed to our office. We cannot accept cash.
If you must cancel your reservation, a partial refund may be granted up until six (6) weeks before the first day of your camp session. No refunds can be made after this date. The $50 deposit is non-refundable..
