No, a paper ticket is not necessary! What is the refund policy? Refunds can be issued up until one day before the event starts.  No refunds will be issued after this date. Is there any food for purchase at the Tiffin Centre? For those eating lunch at the Tiffin Centre, please note that there is no food available here for purchase.  We also ask participants to be mindful of our litterless lunch policy and deposit any food-related garbage or recycling off-site (donations to our compost, however, are always appreciated!).  Water fountains are available to fill up re-useable water bottles. Do I need to accompany my (teenaged) children to this event? We do require that all children have an adult supervisor on-site and participating in our programs in case of unforeseen incidents (sickness, injury, etc.).  If you would like to assign supervision of your children to another adult who will be participating, that would be fine.  We simply ask that they be registered with the individual who has accepted this responsibility. What if I pay extra to drop-off my teenaged children to this event? If you would like to leave your children on-site and under the care of our educators for the day (no half-days) we will send you a more thorough registration form for safety reasons and there is an additional fee. You can drop off as early as 9:45 and pick up no later than 3:15. What if it rains or snows? All of our programs run rain, snow or shine.  Please come prepared for outdoor activity and dress appropriately for the weather. Can I bring my dog to this event? While leashed dogs are allowed on NVCA trails, we ask that they do not accompany you during programming times. My friends will also be attending this event.  Can we request to be placed in the same group/class? Due to the number of participants and the nature of our programs, we cannot guarantee placement with other registrants.
