Cancellation policy

Unfortunately, deposits are non-refundable. Cancellations made prior to May 31 will receive a refund (minus the non-refundable deposit). After May 31, no refunds will be issued. However, if cancellation is due to medical illness or injury please contact the Director of Auxiliary Programs Nick Knauer at nknauer@bentleyschool.org. Bentley Summer Academy reserves the right to cancel a course for any reason, including lack of enrollment. In such cases, a full refund (including the deposit) will be issued.

Missing Camp

We understand campers may need to miss an hour (or day) of camp for a variety of reasons. In that instance, please send an email to summer@bentleyschool.org with the camper's name, camp, and details of the absence. We should note though we don't prorate or offer refunds for days missed.  

financial assistance

Bentley Summer Academy (BSA) is committed to creating and promoting a diverse community. To ensure programming that demographically represents the Bay Area, Bentley Summer Academy offers financial assistance to campers whose families apply for and demonstrate a need for the program.


While the BSA cannot guarantee aid, we endeavor to provide financial support to the widest socioeconomic range of campers possible. Just like during the school year, Bentley strives to be accessible and available to the entire community for the summer as well.


BSA financial assistance applicants must submit the following documents for summer aid consideration:

  • The most recent tax return

  • A detailed letter describing the family's need and reason for applying for financial aid

  • Two recent paychecks from all involved parents and guardians. If parents or guardians are not working, please remember to include this information in the detailed letter.

To apply, please send the required documents above to summer@bentleyschool.org with the subject line: “Financial Assistance Application.”
