  • Participants wishing to withdraw from a Design Works camp must do so by telephone or email. A full refund of tuition minus a $50 processing fee will be issued provided withdrawals are made on or before May 26, 2023.
  • Withdrawals made after May 26 will receive a 50% refund unless made five days or less before the beginning of a camp.
  • There are no refunds for withdrawals made five business days, before the beginning of a camp, except for medical reasons. All medical requests must be made in writing and be fully supported and documented by a practicing physician with the Medical Association.

Full payment is due at registration. There is no reduction in tuition for students who join a camp late or miss class(es). Non-attendance does not constitute official withdrawal. Withdrawals must be done in person, by email or in writing to the College of Extended Learning in Fredericton. Camps are conditional on enrollment. A full refund is issued in the event that a camp is cancelled.

IMPORTANT: If public health restrictions are reinstated that prevent us from holding in-person camps, you will receive a full refund.
