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).

Frankly, it's the cost of doing business, and a risk you run every time you charge for a service before actually providing that service.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

Smart. Get the goodwill of full refunds, avoid the costs of disputes, and maybe get some donations from those who can afford it.
I wonder how much they will get back from parents? I would guess some but not an overwhelming amount
Many camps are privately owned and would have a much harder time asking for donations

Some is better than nothing, and it should help offset the CC processing bills and some other admin costs. A camp like CGI Montreal has many alumni who hold it in high regard, with some campers there for a third generation. I think you'd be surprised at what they can fundraise, especially on the back of this goodwill gesture.

Pocono or upstate NY?
I understand that the consortium of upstate NY camps are applying lots of pressure to get their seasonal permits but haven't heard if any actually received
It's a large group and doesn't only include frum or chassidish camps
There are many that aren't as well

My daughter’s camp is based in Indiana part of AI Camps network. Rumor has is that they are using in Indiana camp grounds for their larger more established Michigan camp. Their email to us was as follows, which makes me feel that they are breaking the news that we’re screwing you over.....

“We hope this update finds you and your family healthy and well.

As we have mentioned in our previous correspondence, summer camp is an ongoing saga for camps all over America.

We have been working very very hard to open MTM this summer.  Our amazing head staff,  and staff are eager and excited to make the MTM dream a reality for this summer.  All year long we've been preparing and gearing up, and it is with tremendous siyata dishmayah that we have such a wonderful group of staff and campers. It would be with a very heavy heart if we would not have the opportunity to get to know each other  personally

The current goal of AI Camps is to give as many campers as possible the summer experience they hoped for under the guidance of our rabbonim and medical advisors.  The camp administration is working with the head staff members of each camp to make summer 5780 a reality for our children.
   
We will IYH be maintaining regular correspondence.

We wish one and all a good Yom Tov.”

As Klal Yisroel is suffering from the effects and aftereffects of the virus, one thing extremely necessary, is to prepare to restart the Kol Torah. This summer we are hoping to be able to restart Yeshiva of Staten Island at its’ upstate location by the parameters set by health experts. Camp YSI has always been a yeshiva away from home where the learning continues at the highest levels, befitting the place where Rav Moshe Feinstein Zt"l would lead klal Yisroel during the summer months.

This past year Hagaon Harav Reuven Shlit”a, decided that it was time to rebuild the camp Bais Medrash. The old building was taken down immediately after the summer, and the work was moving right along until the virus started. After that, the work was interrupted, and equally important, we had to stop meeting people for financial help. Right now the shell is up, but the inside is empty and unusable. In order to get this Makom Torah to be able to get up and running as quickly as possible we need your help. Please help restart the Kol Torah in America by making this new building a reality.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
