Explanation of our Refund Policy:


Gaia Passages is thankful for and depends on the income that we receive from program tuition fees. Our program budgets include paying for staff, sites, insurance, and materials before the season even begins. Therefore, within 6 weeks of the program start date, we have already spent and allocated the program income.



  • 6 weeks or more before program start date: Full Tuition is Returned (minus processing fee of $55 plus credit card fee)
  • 2 to 6 weeks before program start date: 50% of Tuition is Returned (minus processing fee of $55 plus credit card fee)
  • Less than 2 weeks before program start date or after program has already started: No Refund Available, however 90% of your payment can be rolled over to any Gaia Passages program within the next year.

All policies apply to folks who pay in full and to those who have opted for a payment plan.




IF CHILD IS UNABLE TO ATTEND DUE TO COVID-19: Anyone who has been exposed to Covid-19 or is exhibiting symptoms within 2 weeks of a program is asked to not attend in person programs until a 2 week period has passed with no symptoms or other Covid contact. If you are unable to participate in a FULL program because of this (i.e. a week long summer camp) we will offer your family 80% credit for a future GP program within the next 2 years.


IF PROGRAM IS CANCELLED: If a program is cancelled to keep all safe, due to increased shelter-in-place regulations, in response to a wildfire, or other unforeseen circumstances, we will do our best to reschedule with all participants.

If circumstances do not allow for rescheduling to take place the following will occur:

  • For single days within a larger series, there will be no refunds or credits.
  • If the entire program is cancelled, i.e. a week-long summer camp, we will either return 80% of program income OR credit 90% of funds towards a future program within 2 years of program date.

We can only offer 80% refund because funds are spent before the program even begins on preparatory staff time, site fees, insurance, and supplies.

Join one of our fundraising nature wanders this fall! Your support will plant seeds that will bloom far into the future…
