Referral Rebate Program

Since we all know that young people have more fun at camp when they get to attend with their friends, Learningtech.org is delighted to announce our new camp referral rebate program! Hence, if your student is enrolled for one of our summer camps and your family refers one of her/his friends to enroll as well, we will be pleased to reward your family for the referral as follows: While enrolling, your friend should enter, "Referral from family of John Doe," in response to the question "How did you hear about our camp?" Send us an email to watch for their enrollment, and when it comes through we will issue a rebate check to you for 10% of the amount you paid originally. Referral rebates are limited only by the number of open seats left in the camp!
