4. No refund requests will be accepted after ten (10) days following the end of the applicable activity.

 

5. Approved refunds will be processed within thirty (30) days of their receipt in writing and made either by check or by credit card reversal, at the discretion of our council staff, to the original payer for individual registrations or the unit, in care of the reservation contact, for group reservations (Summer Camp, Winter Camp, etc).

 

6. If an activity is cancelled or postponed by our council or a district and the participant cannot attend on the alternate date, the payer may ask for:

  • a refund of the full fee, or
  • a voucher for the full fee paid, which may be applied towards the cost of future events. Any voucher issued is to be used during the same calendar year for other events. The voucher must accompany the registration paperwork for the future activity.
