Payment/Cancellation/Refund Policy

Payment is due at the time of registration to hold a space in the camp. Any cancellations made before May 23, 2014 can be refunded if the cancellation is within 30 days of your payment/registration. Any cancellations between May 23-June 1 will be subject to a $100 administration fee. Any cancellations after June 1 are non-refundable.


Rainy Day/Bad Weather Policy

While we wish every day was sunny and beautiful, inevitably we will experience summer showers here and there. Luckily our area has plenty of fun and engaging in-door activities that our guides will incorporate into our camp schedule. Safety is our number one priority so there may be days when we cannot do our planned activity. For this reason, we keep our weekly itineraries flexible so that we can maintain our commitment to re-scheduling missed activities for later in the week, weather and time permitting. We do not offer refunds or credits for missed activities.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. 

You may call us at 910-458-9171 or email sarah@kayakcarolina.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
