Given the financial/resource commitments involved in delivering the camps and its programme, we cannot commit to providing refunds in the event of cancellation requests once you have paid, but will look at any such request on a case by case basis. You should refer to the terms and conditions for further information.
Once you have submitted your booking online, the payment you have made is non-refundable (unless we are unable to fully accommodate your booking). However, should you wish to amend the particular dates your child or dependant will attend, we ask that you email the camp staff (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible with the requested changes, ideally forwarding the original booking confirmation you received by email together with the requested changes. Please note that any changes to your original booking may incur an admin charge. You should refer to the terms and conditions for further information.
Each camp has a different capacity so we recommend booking early to save disappointment. Once a specific date is fully booked there will be a notification on the online booking form. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. A booking is not valid until the appropriate fee is paid.
The day I want to book is showing as fully booked/closed on the booking form - is there a waiting list or might there still be places?
Please do not book any dates online which are showing as 'closed'. If any spaces do become available due to cancellations, the date will become open for bookings again. We no longer operate a waiting list.
