About Refund Policies

Both our summer and forest school programs have limited room in groups to ensure quality mentoring. If someone leaves a program, we still have the expense of them attending due to commitments such as paying our educators. When we fill a camp and someone decides not to attend, it is often too late to find a student to take their place as waitlisted students have frequently chosen another program.
