Terms and Conditions

 I hereby state that I have read and agree to the following:

All requests to cancel or transfer must be made in writing, email: info@ritesofpassageinstitute.org

PAYMENTS Cancellations (including transfers to other camps) made more than 6 weeks before the start of a camp will be refunded fees, less a $250 administration fee. Cancellations (including transfers to other camps) made between 4 and 6 weeks before the start of a camp will be refunded fees less 50% of payment made. Cancellations (including transfers to other camps) made less than 4 weeks before the start of the camp are usually not able to be filled, for this reason, they will not be refunded unless there is a serious medical issue or death in the family. This is at the discretion of the Rites of Passage Institute who may refund a part of the fee depending upon circumstances. No refunds are given for no-shows. We cannot always offer a place on the next camp, but we will transfer to the next available camp upon written request.

PHOTO RELEASE I give permission to the Rites of Passage Institute to use any images, audio, or video taken at the event for promotional purposes.

RESPONSIBILITY I declare that I am taking part in a workshop, or training, offered by The Rites of Passage Institute of my own free will. I agree to follow the rules and instructions of the workshop, or training, given by the facilitator, and I agree to take full responsibility for my actions during my attendance.

HEALTH & SAFETY I hereby declare that I am not suffering from any psychological, or physical illnesses that could put myself, other participants, or the facilitators in any danger, or harm’s way. The Rites of Passage Institute has a Health and Safety protocol including a COVID safety plan in line with government recommendations. I agree to follow the directions of the Rites of Passage Institute.

CONSENT (where applicable) 

I, being the parent/guardian of the child attending a camp, declare that I understand that the activities may involve running, jumping and water as well as being in the bush, thus exposing my child to situations and physical activities that have an element of risk. I acknowledge that there will be every reasonable effort made to minimise exposure to known risks. However, all hazards and dangers associated with these activities cannot be foreseen or may be beyond the control of staff. I acknowledge that this camp will be held in a bush environment and while every effort is made to ensure the safety and well being of my child, there is always a possibility of sickness or injuries occurring. There will be trained first aid staff on the camp but for any serious medical issues that may arise, there is an evacuation procedure which includes any affected participant being transferred to the nearest hospital. In the event of an ambulance being required or extra medical fees arising, they will be the responsibility of the participant.

CONFIDENTIALITY  To protect the privacy of all participants, I agree to maintain confidentiality about the process and information I come to know during this event. I will respect the identity and privacy of all individuals attending this workshop, or training.

In the event of unforeseen circumstances, The Rites of Passage Institute reserve the right to change or cancel camps.
