Frequently Asked Questions

  • For a full refund you must cancel your childcare reservation 48 hours ahead of your visit.  All other cancellations inside 48 hours of your visit result in forfeiture of the registration fee, including cancellations due to illness.  Please keep in mind cancelling your lodging reservation does not cancel your childcare reservation.  You must contact us directly to cancel. 

    Exception: if the SuperQuad is unable to operate due to wind and a cancellation call is made to childcare by 9:30am, there will be no charge.

    Each day of your stay, you will be given a numbered security pass. Please expect to present and return it each day at pick up time. If someone other than the person who checked the child in will be picking the child up, we must know ahead of time.
