General Refund Policy of the Cherokee Area Council, BSA

All individual refunds are to be requested in writing, no later than one week after the end of an event, and can be sent by mail, email or fax.  When the request is received in relation to the start of the event, camp or activity will determine the amount of the refund.  Fees may be applied to another individual attending the same event, camp or activity if arranged prior to the event.  Fees cannot be rolled-over to a camp, event or activity to occur at a later time.

A $5 cancellation fee, per person, will be subtracted from all refunds to cover bank fees and processing costs. 

This General Refund Policy applies to all camps, events and activities of the Cherokee Area Council, BSA unless otherwise stated.  Refunds requested due to medical reasons and other unforeseen circumstances will be considered and may require additional documentation.
