Refunds and Cancellation Policy
SCOUTS New Zealand reserves the right to decline an application without giving a reason.
If your application is accepted, your deposit is not refundable but may be transferred to a new applicant. You will be entitled to a refund of your fees paid to date (less the $150, non refundable deposit) if the Venture is canceled for any reason or you are prevented from attending through an accident or sickness, providing a months notice is given to the Venture organising committee and a medical certificate provided.
The Venture fee is based on anticipated attendance. Should applications fall short of this number or the cost of services or supplies escalate to the extent that a loss may occur, SCOUTS New Zealand shall have the right to adjust the fees accordingly. In this event, a participant may withdraw and receive a refund – less the non refundable deposit of $150.
