Central Georgia Council, Boy Scouts of America

Activities and Training Refund Policy

Adopted January 28, 2016


The Central Georgia Council will process refunds for fees paid for activities and training under the following conditions:

  • Requests must be made in writing to the Council Service Center via mail, fax, or email. All emails must be sent to Kim Grant at kimberly.grant@scouting.org
  • All refund requests must be received by the event date. Requests received after this time will not be processed.
  • Requests for refund made:
    • Two weeks or more before event = 85% Refund
    • Less than two weeks and until event = 50% Refund
    • After the event date = No refund
  • Reasons for requesting a refund:
    • Serious illness or injury preventing attendance
    • Death in family preventing attendance
    • The event or activity is cancelled or rescheduled
    • Family Emergency
  • Refunds for fees of $10 or less will not be issued.
  • Refunds are not given for no shows and for bad weather that does not warrant event cancellation.

For Council High Adventure Contingents, National Jamborees, and other similar events, refunds will be given if a paid participant has replaced the Scout that has cancelled. The refund will be less any costs incurred by these changes (airfare, activity fees, transportation)

Refunds for Order of the Arrow events are subject to all of the above and will be issued only with the approval of the Lodge Staff Advisor.
