It is important that every student and at least one of their parents sign the Conditions of Registration & Attendance in order to attend RYLA. This is required as most cancellations are the result of students and/or their parents decide that another activity is more important. Often it is not understood by the chosen students or their parents that they possess a highly coveted space at RYLA and giving up that space should not be taken lightly. Students and their parents must consider that in nearly all cases, there is a list of alternates waiting for a space to open up for their benefit. It is also important that Club RYLA chair from each club remain in constant contact with their chosen students and alternates.
See the table below for receiving refunds for cancellations:
Club Cancels prior to February 15th
Club Cancels between February 15th & April 1st
Club Cancels after April 1st
Students who do not show up for RYLA or who inform RYLA District staff that they are not attending are considered a “Cancellation” unless there is an Alternate who can fill their Reserved Space (See RYLA Alternates) according to the schedule for Alternates.
The Donation to the Scholarship fund may be refunded in the event that a Club sends no students. The refund to the club can be requested by the RYLA Club Chair but the spirit of this arrangement is to build the District’s ability to contribute to the education of our Youth. (See Scholarship Donations).
In the event a Club cancels at any time prior to April 1st, the club at its option may instruct RYLA Staff to convert all or a portion of their Tuition to a Scholarship donation. This would still list the Club as participating in RYLA in District records.
All refunds due under the cancellation policy will be delivered in the form of a check to the Club 30 days after the event ends.
