Frequently Asked Questions
We put our Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) on all our receipts, so check there. The receipt may be all you need for reimbursement. If you can’t locate your receipt. Please send a request by email.
If you need forms signed, you can personally get them signed by any of our lead instructors on the day of camp or you can leave them with a pre-addressed stamped envelope for return.
If you will attend a subsequent camp or class, it may be possible to have them left for you to pick up. Unfortunately, we can’t arrange pickup times for forms outside of camp/class times because we are only open when programming occurs.
If you need to mail your forms for signature, please send them with a with a stamped envelope for return to: Breathing Space, 713 14th Street SE, Washington DC 20003
Please do not email forms.
School Year / Day-off Camp registration may be credited to a future camp or refunded (minus $10 processing fee) until 14 days before a scheduled camp.
Within 14 days of a camp day, refunds/credits are only available if a waitlisted camper takes the spot (processing fee still applies) Camps often sell out well in advance. The further in advance you tell us about your camper’s change of plans, the more likely it is that we fill your spot.
Summer Camp registrations cancelled before May 31 will be issued minus the $100 non-refundable portion of tuition or switched to any other available week at no charge. Refunds will only be issued after May 31 if a waitlisted camper takes the available spot, but switching weeks is still be option, space permitting.
Why do you have a processing fee and a refund deadline? Managing changes to camp rosters, waitlists and refunds actually takes up a lot of staff time. We sometimes fill cancelled spots, but sometimes don’t. While we understand that life isn’t always predictable, we don’t want clients registering for camp to “hold their spot” while they firm up plans. When we hit our refund deadlines (14 days for school year camps and end of May for summer), the vast majority of possible campers – even those who put themselves on our waitlist – have made plans and filling vacant spots can be challenging. At that point we are counting on our registration numbers to cover our costs. If we allowed last minute refunds, we’d have to raise the price of camp for everyone to compensate.
Summer Camp costs $400 per week. Games Club is an additional $18 per day for summer campers.
Registration Policies: Payment in full is required to hold space in camp. The first $100 of tuition is non-refundable.
- Families that pay in full before February 28 are eligible for a $20 early bird registration discount (prorated for early childhood week partial registration). No other discounts apply.
Multi-camp Discount: Signing up for multiple weeks of camp after the early bird discount has passed? Use discount code at checkout “MULTICAMP” to take $20 off each. (Note: discounts do not combine and multicamp does not apply during the earlybird registration period.)
The first time you enroll a child in camp, a signed liability waiver and photo release for each camper. This is a longer version of the waiver you complete when you register via YogaReg. If you haven’t ever filled one out, please bring a copy or plan to fill it out in the morning.
We also need a participant questionnaire every summer and for each new school year. Just once per season unless important information changes. However, please remind us about food allergies every time.
