Blue Grass Council Refund Policy for Activities and Events*

Individuals or groups that cancel an activity/event reservation are subject to the following policy. All refund requests must be made in writing and submitted to the council service center via mail or email to the appropriate event chair or support person. Requests submitted at least 30 days prior to the date of the event will receive a refund of fees paid, less 15% administrative charge.  Refund requests made between 14-29 days before the event may be eligible for a 50% refund, and refund requests made between 7-13 days before the event will be eligible for a 25% refund.  NO refunds will be made for requests made less than 7 days before an event or any time after an event.  Approved refund requests will be paid within 30 days of written request. Some events, for example the National Jamboree or Philmont, have more stringent refund guidelines.  See individual event guidelines for details.

*The event chair/staff advisor will have the final say on the amount of refund as it affects their budget.

Summer Camp Refunds

The refund policy for summer camp is different from other events. The summer camp refund policy can be found in the Leader’s Guide to Summer Camp which can be found on the Camp McKee Summer Camp page.
