Cancellation Policy

Cancellations with at least two weeks notice are eligible for a full refund — minus a $50 handling fee — but only if the cancelled spot is filled. Cancellations with less than two weeks notice, or ones where the spot has not been filled will receive $50 per session. A $5 processing fee is applied to any Extended Care refunds. T-shirts are fully refundable.

Birds Connect Seattle Memberships and donations to Birds Connect Seattle Programs are NOT eligible for refunds.

There is no fee to transfer registrations to other weeks within the same summer season, if spots are available and if transfer is requested at least two weeks before the start of the camp session. Transfer requests submitted within 2 weeks of the start of the session may not be fulfilled, depending on the ability to fill the spot.

All cancellations initiated by Birds Connect Seattle (example: due to COVID,) will result in a full refund.
