Camp Cardinal cannot be held responsible for weather, illness, work schedules, or other situations impacting Camp Cardinal guests and, therefore, enforce Camp Cardinal cancellation policy regardless of circumstances.

Reservation Policy:
  • There is a 2-night minimum on all advanced reservations (a 3-night minimum on all Holiday reservations).
