Therefore, we are requesting that you let us know as early as possible if you no longer intend to attend the program so others can make the necessary arrangements to attend the program.
A cancellation fee of $100 for Indoor Housing, or $50 for Tent Housing, applies to all cancellations.
If you cancel more than 30 days prior to the program start date, you will receive a refund less the cancellation fee. If you cancel between 14 and 30 days prior to the program start date, you will receive program credit for the amount paid less the cancellation fee. If you cancel within 14 days of the program start date, there is no refund or program credit unless all rooms/tents for the program are filled.
