Cancellation Policy

If for any reason you need to cancel your retreat reservation our cancellation policy is as follows:

Time Frame: You receive:
Up until 45 days prior to trip departure Refund of what you have paid minus a $150.00 fee
44-31 days prior to trip departure 50% of your payments and $150 processing fee per person
30-15 days prior to trip departure 15% of your payments and $150 processing fee per person
14-0 days prior trip departure No Refund

In order to keep our retreats affordable and provide proper notice to our lodging and activity partners, we must adhere to this timeline, no exceptions. After our refund deadline has passed we cannot provide a refund for any reason, including circumstances beyond your control such as weather-related travel delays, family emergency, or injury. There is also no partial refund if you arrive late to your retreat or depart early. Insurance agencies however, offer a full or partial refund in many circumstances if you purchase travel insurance to cover your retreat.

If for some reason you cannot attend the retreat for which you registered, you may:

Transfer Your Registration
Transfers are available only when retreat has been paid in full. You may apply this payment to another retreat or person subject to the following guidelines:

Transferring to Another Retreat

You can transfer your registration one time to another CBYR Retreat at a later date with these guidelines:

  • The fee for each transfer will be $50.00 USD. The transfer fee will be waived if the transfer is to a retreat that occurs at an earlier date.
  • Your request for a transfer needs to be made at least 14 days prior to the start date of the retreat for which you originally registered and will be granted subject to availability.
  • You can transfer only into a retreat that occurs within six months from the start date of the retreat for which you originally registered.
  • If you registered for a retreat with a discounted tuition, you may transfer one time and retain the same discount though the retreat prices are not likely to be the same.

Transferring to Another Person

You may request that your registration be transferred to another person by contacting a CBYR Retreat Coordinator. Transferring online to another person is not available. Note the following:

  • Your request for a transfer to another person needs to be made at least 14 days prior to the start date of the retreat for which you originally registered and will be granted subject to availability.
  • You can transfer your registration to another person only for a retreat that occurs within six months after the start date of the retreat for which you originally registered.
