Gaia Passages depends on the income received from program tuition. Our program budgets include payment for staff, sites, insurance, and materials before the season even begins. Within 6 weeks of the program start date, we have already made commitments to spend the majority of program income.
Refund policies apply to all tuition tiers and payment plans.
IF A PROGRAM IS CANCELLED: If a program is cancelled to keep all safe, due to increased shelter-in-place directives, 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:
We can only offer 80% refund because funds are spent before the program even begins on preparatory staff time, site fees, insurance, and supplies.
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 circle not permitted to attend in-person programs until a 2-week period has passed with no symptoms or no other Covid-19 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.
