Frequently Asked Program Questions
Q: How do I register for programs?
A: Watch for 2018 program registrations dates. Program registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. A deposit of 50% will be taken by credit card at the time of registration. The balance will be due 30 days prior to the program start. If you register within 30 days of your arrival date, full payment is required at the time of registration.
If you would prefer to continue your registration by speaking to a Naramata Centre staff member over the phone, you can contact us at 250-496-5751. Office hours will be posted when registration opens.
Q: How are program costs determined?
A: Programming has been priced comparably with what you would pay for a similar program in your community to ensure the program is sustainable for both Naramata Centre and the program leader. Program costs vary with the length of the program, the materials costs, and the program nature.
Q: I have children; is there programming available for them?
A: Some of our programs will be intergenerational, and some of our programs will be geared specifically to children. If a child or youth is not registered in a program and is staying onsite, parents/guardians are responsible for child care and supervision.
Q: Do I have to stay at Naramata Centre to attend a program?
A: We welcome everyone to attend our programs, whether or not they are staying onsite at the Centre.
Q: What times of day are programs offered?
A: Program times will vary by program. Some will be an hour, some half-days and others full days, the number of days may vary, and programs may be offered in the morning, afternoon or evening.
Q: If I don’t register for a program, will there be other community events I can participate in?
A: We will be providing facilitated community and worship activities that are open to everyone staying onsite (whether or not they are registered for programs) as well as the local community. We encourage active participation in our events and activities, as these help to build community among those staying on site.
Q: What is the cancellation policy for programs?
A: Should participants wish to withdraw from a registered program, they can do so with a full refund, minus a $25 administration fee, up to 60 days prior to their program start date. Program cancellations between 21-60 days prior to program start will be refunded, minus the initial 50% deposit. Cancellations less than 21 days prior to the program start are non-refundable.
The Naramata Centre reserves the right to cancel programs should attendance not meet required minimums for financial viability. Should a program be canceled, participants will be notified more than 21 days before program start time and their program fees will be fully refunded. If a participant also booked accommodation in order to attend a program that is canceled by the Centre, and they wish to cancel their accommodations as a result of the program cancellation, their accommodation will be refunded in full if requested within 3 days of the cancellation notice.
