Cancellation Policy

Whilst being mindful of individual circumstances, the Policy of Charnwood 2019 International Scout and Guide Camp is that all Deposits and Payments are Non-Refundable.

The camp will however entertain replacement participants in the event that a particular person is unable to attend. These alterations will be dealt with on an individual basis and it should not be assumed that all requests for alterations of personnel will be sanctioned. In particular – last minute replacements will not be allowed.

In respect of those persons who have paid the full amount who are unable to attend and are unable to find a replacement – the camp will consider requests for refunds – but these will again be dealt with on an individual basis – after the camp has finished, and only if there are sufficient funds available to make the payment.
