Due to limited seating, we request that you cancel at least one week before the event. This gives us the opportunity to offer the event to others. For these cancellations, 50% of your payment will be refunded.

If you cancel in less than 1 week before the event, there will be no refund.

Our cancellation policy applies in every instance and there will be no exceptions for any reason. We will not issue a refund for arriving late or leaving early. We are not responsible for any expenses incurred due to travel delays, flight cancellations or illness.


We reserve the right to change the scheduled itinerary at our discretion. It will sometimes be necessary to change plans and itineraries due to technology issues, acts of Mother Nature, or situations beyond our control. If changes are required, we will do our best to substitute a quality experience, and try to provide you with an event that exceeds your expectations OR reschedule the event.

We recommend purchasing short-term travel, cancellation and accident insurance before your trip. You can purchase policies that will cover the length of your vacation and provide short-term coverage in the event of loss of luggage, a personal accident or the loss of personal belongings. Your individual homeowners policy may cover some of these items also (it’s a good idea to check in advance). We suggest these travel insurance agencies:

Some of the most difficult situations include sudden onset of health problems for our participants or their family members, or catastrophic events. In these situations, we generally do not have time to refill the space, yet we have already spent considerable time, money, and energy preparing for your participation. Because of our very limited number of available spaces, we cannot afford the financial loss that cancellations cause. Therefore, in deciding whether or not to buy this insurance, consider the investment you are making and whether or not you could afford the loss if you did have to cancel.
