Refund Policy

Due to staffing and displacing someone else due to the limited number of accepted participants, there is a no refund policy, with the exception of a medical problem. If you need to cancel, an account credit will be issued that can be applied towards any future program.

If inclement weather or field conditions force us to cancel a session, we’ll try to make it up at the end but it’s not guaranteed depending on availability of fields and participants.
