Since we have made purchases in advance based on the number of tickets booked, we are unable to provide full refunds. We would love to see you join us - please try to make it! If extremely urgent, we suggest finding a replacement for your ticket on the trip and sorting out costs with them extraneously. Please reach out to the above contacts to sort out such scenarios if you are unable to find replacements. We will process refunds in exceptional cases only and we would still only return   Can I drive directly to the site using my car? There is no space for extra cars at the campsite. You would be charged extra for bringing your own car. Reach out to the organizers if you would like to volunteer your car to carry food, snacks, coolers, gas stoves etc. in case you really want to come by car so that the folks in the vans get more space. Can I come and go anytime during the event? We highly recommend driving with us and spending the whole 3 days with us - we are an awesome set of folks to hang out with!

In the situation that urgent scenarios emerge, please reach out to us at gtbhaktiyoga@gmail.com.   Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable? Yes - although we would love to see both you and your friend join us! The transfer would be a matter between you and the person you are transferring it to and removes any liability to the Bhakti Yoga Club at Georgia Tech or Georgia Tech in anyway. Is there anything that I need to know? This is a spiritual retreat, so there is emphasis on yoga, meditation, yoga philosophy discussions, reading, waking up early etc. But we will have LOADS OF FUN DOING THEM!

We welcome pets provided they are well behaved, kept on a leash when on the move, and don't create nuisance when we eat/do yoga/read/discuss etc. Reach out to the volunteers in case you need to bring a pet. There is no extra cost for the pet but its' care and diet etc. is your responsibility. On the trip, you will be asked to help with cooking and cleaning once each in a team of 6. This helps us keep the camp organized and a memorable experience for all!
