Agreement To Contract Electronically
Our trips are carefully planned and we must cover fixed operational costs. If you wish to cancel your child’s participation in a trip, your cancellation notice must be received in writing (email) no less than 30 days prior to trip. A $50 fee will apply and be subtracted from any refund. Cancellations with less than 30 days notice of the scheduled trip incur a $75 charge to be subtracted from the refund. Cancellation within 7 days or less will not receive any refund. To receive any refund upon a cancellation within 7 days or less, the situation must be a verifiable special circumstance or emergency. Please Contact Us to discuss.
