TERMS AND CONDITIONS 

Wonder Wanderful Enterprises, LLC reserves the right to update and/or alter the following terms and conditions at any time. It is your responsibility to be familiar with these terms and conditions.

All retreats are offered subject to CWW’s standard terms and conditions. Please review the terms and conditions carefully prior to completing your reservation. Some of these terms and conditions are set out below to draw your attention to the fact that our obligations to you are limited.

In addition, wifi may be available, but may also be turned off for purposes of the program. Participants understand that limited use of internet is the primary goal of the participation and to make sure to adjust settings to low if viewing any video.

PARTICIPANT CONDUCT

 

CWW is a non-smoking, non-vaping environment. We understand that some participants at times may be smokers or trying to quit, so we would like you to ensure that smoking occurs ONLY in designated spaces far from the entrances to lodging, away from animals and group gatherings, and only stationary - no walking and smoking. All remnants of smoking in designated areas should be removed immediately including any cigarette butts that are tossed anywhere on our property.

No illegal drug use. This is a holistic healing place and any impairment can alter not only an individual's experience, but the others around them. In addition, impairment due to drug use is a health hazard risk due to the rural environment with camp animals and an entire wild ecosystem. Psychotropic and mood altering is frowned upon where nature is the primary objective. Use of illegal drugs will be cause for immediate departure.

Limited or no alcohol depending on event. Excessive alcohol use will not be tolerated and grounds for immediate cancellation. Impairment must subside before any departure. Evidence of excessive alcohol could be the amount of visible remnants of cans or bottles compared to the amount of people as well as any verbal or other impairment conduct will be enough grounds for this cancellation and departure mandate.

No harassment, bullying, discrimination or other violent conduct towards others - human and non-human will be tolerated. Any violation of this will be cause for immediate removal from CWW and any potential follow-up such as police report or other necessary documentation. If you are a witness to this conduct or the target, please immediately notify CWW via text message, the ring doorbell, or attempt to find any staff or long term resident. Physical abuse or harassment will be grounds for immediate departure and forfeiture of program fees etc. Based on the level of severity, law enforcement may be contacted.  

No weapons including guns. There is no hunting allowed on this property and no purpose for weapons even for those with concealed carry permits. Please consider the well-being of the others involved in the retreat and the affect that a weapon can have on the psyche whether it is exposed or hidden.

Solicitation and Proselytizing Prohibited: Solicitation and/or contact for sales of products, sales of services, and/or for membership, participation, proselytizing and/or fundraising for any purpose, profit and/or non-profit, religious and/
or not-religious, is strictly prohibited. Conduct prohibited under this paragraph shall be considered a material breach of the Agreement.
 

No illegal activities. This will be grounds for immediate termination of this agreement and CWW reserves the right to pursue legal action at minimum of reporting and recording for the purposes of law enforcement duties.


No nudity on site, during activities, or in shared lodging circumstances. This is a family friendly environment, not a nudist colony. 


COVID-19

 

For the health and well-being of all participants, leaders, and any staff, we would like participants to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination or a negative test within 48 hours of arrival. Although we breath much fresh air out here in the country, we realize that everyone participating is coming from various places and travel logistics, therefore we would like to breath easy with this level of mental health comfort. No one really ever wants to get sick even with just a small common cold. Please help Val and others on site stay on task with our summer offerings by adhering to this rule. Thank you.

By making a reservation for any CWW event, you understand that 50% of the program fee is non-refundable if cancelled at any point after booking to within 35 days of the program start date or your chosen arrival date. There is NO REFUND for cancellations within 34 days of arrival or at any point during the event for any reason. If you are experiencing any medical issues within this non-refundable time period that will prevent your attendance including, but not limited to, testing positive for Covid-19, you may ask for a credit towards another equal event in the future or a credit towards a longer event with higher registration fee in the future.

Payment plans: If a payment plan is selected, the accrual of payments to at least 50% of the program fee shall take place prior to any cancellation eligibility. If payment plan deadline has not been made, you will receive a reminder message and be able to pay late within 7 days.

POLICIES REGARDING CUSTOMER PROGRAM EVENTS

FINANCE POLICIES

It takes a lot of time and creative energy to coordinate a group retreat. For events that are coordinated by an outside group or individual, understanding and respecting your time and ours, a 25% non-refundable deposit will be required to hold the dates after receiving a proposal and a signed agreement. Payment plans may be available based on how far in advance your retreat is scheduled. 50 % must be paid within 30 days. Final payment is due within 14 days of arrival. No refunds or cancellations will be accepted within the two week or during the event. If there are extreme circumstances due to force majuere, sickness, or other acts outside of the control of CWW (Wonder Wanderful Enterprises, LLC) or the booked customer, we will do our best to reschedule or create viable alternative plan.

Early bookings are recommended to reserve your preferred time on the calendar. Upon receipt of retreat proposal and a signed event agreement, you will be directed to the payment registration options where a 25% non-refundable deposit is required to hold the dates and move forward in planning. Once you have made a secure payment in full or with a deposit, your booking will be confirmed and the invoice will act as receipt and confirmation. You will receive communication in the planning stages of the retreat and a final payment is due within 14 days of the retreat start date. Once the retreat starts, we will do everything possible to ensure your enjoyment, and we rely on you to tell us if something is not working. We look forward to a successful partnership together.

​INSURANCE

We recommend that your participants immediately purchase travel insurance and make sure that your package is as thorough as possible including for unforeseen health or environmental disasters. You may want to consider if they have coverage if you decide to cancel for any reason including, but not limited to, personal or business-related complications.
