Purchase Day Camp reserves the right to refuse the enrollment of any child or to cancel this enrollment agreement at any time based on its sole and exclusive determination that the child's physical, mental, or emotional condition, would prevent that child from participating safely and satisfactorily in the programs offered; would prevent the child from interacting positively with other campers or TEAM Members; or would negatively impact on Purchase Day Camp's ability to offer its fundamental services. The Camp can initiate the cancellation of this agreement and the dismissal of the child if, during the camp season, the child or his/her agents exhibits unacceptable behavior which prevents our TEAM Members from safely supervising him/her or proves detrimental to himself/herself, other campers or TEAM Members as determined by the Camp Director.
