In the event of severe weather such as a hurricane, students will be sent home with as much notice as possible. Any residential student who cannot be picked up will be provided emergency shelter with a host family. If the program is canceled prior to check-in a refund less a processing fee will be issued. If cancellation occurs after program has started, we will issue an appropriate refund that takes into account the activities already completed.
