Refund and Cancellation Policy

A minimum number of participants are required to hold classes and take trips.

It is highly recommended that you pre-register as early as possible to avoid programs being cancelled due to a lack of enrollment. Refunds are provided only if the class is cancelled. Refunds are not provided for illness, change of plans, or any other reason. “Credits” or “Exchanges” are also not accepted.
