None of those you listed are out of the kindness of their hearts. Landlords would much rather give a tenant a discount and he pays now that need to wait until they start allowing evictions again for example.
they were examples and there are plenty more... everyone has been impacted to some extent.
the camp wont be able to provide the service which was applied for - that is 100% certain 
so whether out of the kindness of their hearts or not, they should be forthcoming with their thinking etc... not just say were not depositing checks or charging cards until.... and we'll keep you posted....
transparency
thats what i'm saying.. so parents can know what they are dealing with... then, they can discuss refunds of a deposit if they arent comfortable or wont be able to pay in full on short notice

1) its boys over 18 possible they got some sort of residence permit
2) if the state bans camp the permit is void
3) does anyone know if they actually got permits or just a promise that they will get a permit  usually camps dont get permits till june

As for summer day camps, the governor said if the camps can prepare guidelines and the DOH believes they can do camps safely, there is the possibility they could happen.

However, the governor also said that until we have more information on the illness, he would not send his children to day camps.

Which is a nice way of saying no

CGI montreal sent an email cancelling camp and issuing refunds
the following is an excerpt of said email which seemed interesting:

Although we are forced to cancel camp, we will refund 100% of your payment. We make this offer knowing that the financial impact on camp is challenging, as we have, and continue to incur huge expenditures anticipating campís opening and ongoing expenses.

Attached is your record of payment to date. We take the liberty to request your support to assist us with our current cost and losses. Please consider donating the deposit and perhaps some of your payments towards camp, for a donation receipt (US receipt option as well).

Smart. Get the goodwill of full refunds, avoid the costs of disputes, and maybe get some donations from those who can afford it.

They should mention / give option to at minimum deduct credit card processing fees. People pay by credit card for personal gain / benefits (earn points AND avoid instant payment (cash / check / transfer).

Now the company is potentially taking extra losses due to this (if processing 100% refund).
