Refund/Cancellation Policies

Tuition Policy

For expeditions of 3 days or less in length, the full expedition price is due at the time of tuition in order to reserve a space. For expeditions four or more days in length, a 25% (of full expedition price) tuition fee is due in order to reserve a space.  The balance for expeditions of four or more days is due two weeks prior to expedition departure. Some extended and expedition expeditions will require a larger tuition fee and/or an earlier final payment deadline. This information will be stated on the individual expedition information flyer.

Cancellation Refund Policy: Prospective expedition participants who cancel from a expedition will automatically forfeit a $25 tuition fee. This tuition fee CANNOT BE REFUNDED for any reason or under any circumstances.  Any participants who cancel before the sign-up deadline of the expedition will receive a refund of the expedition cost minus the tuition fee. ***Any Cancellation made after the sign-up deadline will forfeit the total cost of the expedition.**** Some expeditions will require an earlier deadline for cancellation and will be stated on the individual expedition brochure.  Refunds or transfers can only be approved and issued by the expedition leader for that specific expedition. If for any reason, we, ReCreation Adventure Ministries, cancel a expedition, a full refund will be issued (including the tuition fee).  If you have any questions regarding our policies, please call or submit an email.

Transfer Policy: All transfers from one ReCreation Adventure Ministries expedition to another are subject to the same conditions as the “Cancellation/Refund Policy”. After registering for an expedition, you may transfer that specific expedition one time only.

Medical Emergencies: In the event of a medical emergency and upon receipt of a written statement from a doctor attesting to your inability to participate on the expedition, the ReCreation Adventure Ministries will retain the $25 tuition fee as a cancellation fee and the rest of the expedition tuition will be refunded.

All refunds will be issued within 10-15 business days of the documented request. Documented requests can be received in writing or in an email from the email on file for the expedition.
