Privacy & Reimbursement Policy

Cancellation Reimbursement Policy

If Phinizy Center has to cancel a program or class due to weather or low enrollment, you will be given the choice of applying your registration to another class or program, receiving a full refund, or giving your registration as a tax-deductible contribution to Phinizy Center.

Individual Refund Request:

In order to receive a refund of fees paid, Phinizy Center requires a minimum notice of two weeks for any cancellation of a program, field trip, or class. If you make a request for a refund with less than two weeks notice, a refund will not be guaranteed and will be made on a case by case basis. Our Summer Camp Program requires a notice of at least four weeks for a full refund to be given. Note: Any refund will have a small processing fee deducted from the original purchase price.

Rental Refunds:

Rental refunds are based on the language of the individual agreement you sign at the time of rental confirmation.
