Please note: Refunds are no longer available but you can still transfer your bookings to another date, as long as you transfer up to 3 days before the event that you originally book on to. If it is 3 or less days until your original booking then unfortunately it is too short notice to transfer. We feel that we keep our prices low in comparison to other Forest School companies who charge double and more. We also allow you to transfer your booking if you can’t make a session that week. The admin of refunding bookings would mean we would have to raise our prices in future.
