Payments for Child Care services must be made in advance and are not accepted at the school sites. You may pay by any of the following means:

Payments may be made on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis, but must be received at the Camp Fire office by the Friday before services are rendered.

Program services for any child may be immediately suspended if account charges are not paid in a timely manner. Clients will be charged $35.00 for returned checks and may be put on a "cash only" basis for more than one returned check or auto debit. If Camp Fire's efforts to collect past-due accounts fail, account information will be turned over to a collection agency.

Parents will be notified of applicable rate changes for weeks in which extended care is offered. Applicable fees for these programs are also due in advance.
