Rain Day/Bad Weather Policy
Our facility does provide an indoor loft space where we can hold most activities. However, some will take place outdoors regardless of weather, so please ensure children are dressed appropriately.
However, there may be some extreme weather days (which may include thunder & lightning, freezing rain, dangerous winds and temperatures -18°C before the wind chill) or COVID measures, where our facility has to close to ensure the safety and well-being of staff and clients. In the event that Earthbound has to cancel a field trip you will receive a credit for a make-up trip to be used on another date.
As an environmentally friendly facility we ask that students, teachers, helpers, volunteers and parents bring a litterless lunch and a reusable water bottle.
Earthbound Kids strives at all times to provide its programs, goods and services in a way that respects the dignity and independence of people with disabilities. We are also committed to giving people with disabilities the same opportunity to access our programs, goods and services and allowing them to benefit from the same services, in the same place, and in a similar way as other participants.
Please advise us of any children with special needs so that we can make appropriate accommodations in the delivery of our workshops. We also ask that if a child requires a helper at school then a helper is sent with him/her on the trip to Earthbound Kids.
Deposits are non-refundable. If you need to cancel, please provide at least 2 weeks written notice so that you may use your deposit towards a re-scheduled date in the current school year. Cancellations with less than 2 weeks notice will forfeit their deposit.
