Change of numbers

Refund / cancellation policy
Adventure Bound NTs’ cancellation / refund policy exists to encourage commitment when applying for a program.
It is to cover costs incurred by ABNT and also reimburses lost income due to refused bookings when an organisation either cancels or postpones a booked program.
Cancellation of booking – no refund
Cancellations between 28 and 60 days prior to the commencement of the program: 50% of Camp deposit will be retained.
Cancellations between 5 and 28 days prior to the commencement of the program: full Camp deposit will be retained.
Cancellation of less than 5 days prior to commencement of the program: 75% of the full amount will be charged.
If the program has been cancelled by ABNT for any reason, refunds will be in full.
Students sent home
If throughout the camp, any person is sent home because of illness, injury or unforseen circumstances, a refund will be given for the days not attended at the camp. If a student is sent home for disciplinary reasons, no refund will be payable.
Damage to camp facilities or equipment
Damage that occurs through normal wear and tear will not incur a cost, however, if wilful damage to the facility or equipment has occurred, an assessment of the cost will be made by ABNT and school staff. The person damaging the facility or equipment will be billed through the school.
As most schools have excursion consent forms and medical history forms etc, already in existence, the medical / dietary forms provided is formatted as a summary to be completed by school staff for reference purposes by ABNT.
As members of a professional association, ABNT has an administration responsibility in the form of a ‘Liability Release and Assumption of Risk’ form. This form is to bring to the attention of participants not only of the nature of adventurous activities but of the specific risks involved. It is required that a photocopy be sent to each student for his or her parents or guardians to read, sign and return to ABNT prior to commencement of the program.
Participants who fail to provide the signed form will be unable to participate in the adventurous activities, as they will not be legally covered by ABNT insurance.
A parent consent form also gives consent for ABNT staff to administer first aid if required. Consent for use of participant particulars for advertising purposes is also asked for. If these points are addressed in an existing school document, a copy may be provided in lieu of the ABNT consent form.
The following attachments need to be completed and returned to ABNT:
- Confirmation of camp booking fax/email back sheet (Appendix 5)
- Medical / dietary summary (Appendix 6)
- Consent form (Appendix 7)
- Liability release and assumption of risk form (sample only Appendix 8)
ABNT will email forms once program is finalised and activities know.
