Terms and Conditions: updated September 6, 2021

Refunds:
Refunds will be given up to one full week in advance of the program / class / workshop start date. Pro-rated refunds will be given with a medical certificate should a refund be approved. There will be a $15 – $25 administration charge dependent on the original fee on all refunds made to your credit card or in cheque form. Memberships for indoor playground, school walkovers, pottery studio and fitness memberships and tickets are NON- REFUNDABLE. There will be no refunds for tickets to our events. There will be no refunds after the program mid-point.
Please send a detailed email to info@gnag.ca or call us at 613-233-8713 if you would like a refund.

Summer Camps:
Refunds are available if we receive at least two week’s notice for each camp (notification falls within a standard business day – before 5 pm). Sleep-over camps require one full month’s notice. A $25.00 administration charge applies on all immediate refunds, but we can put a credit on your GNAG account at no charge (you will have 2 years to use the refund). If you wish to transfer camps the same notification time is required.

Cancellations:
Unfortunately, some programs may be cancelled due to insufficient registration; in such cases, a full refund will be issued. We make every effort to make decisions on these programs one week prior to the start date. To avoid disappointment, register early and get your friends to join too!

Waiting Lists:
If a course in which you are interested is full, you have the option of making another course selection, or being put on a waiting list. You will have the opportunity to put your name on a waiting list while registering for camps.

Event Tickets:
Tickets for our events are non-refundable.

WAIVERS

HEALTH & SAFETY, PERMISSION TO PARTICIPATE, ASSUMPTION OF RISKS, WAIVER OF LIABILITY & INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATION

Health & Safety:

When children from multiple families attend a single day camp, there is an increased risk of the COVID-19 virus coming into the camp. Children who are infected with the COVID-19 virus are more likely than adults to have a very mild infection, or to have no symptoms at all. Nevertheless, these children can still transmit the infection to other children and to adults in the camp. This means that children can bring home an infection acquired in the camp and put other persons at risk. GNAG has a screening process to help detect infections when there are symptoms, however this screening process cannot detect infected children or adults who are asymptomatic at the time of the screening.

The Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group (GNAG) is dedicated to serving our community, particularly those in vulnerable populations. As a result, we have been following the available data and direction regarding COVID and the vaccination program with close attention. It is clear to us that the vaccination program and other measures such as the wearing of masks, frequent hand washing, and social distancing are critical to our recovery in the pandemic and a return to more fulsome operations.

As a result and in alignment with provincial regulations, participants in GNAG programs and events will be required to provide proof of full vaccination (including the completion of the two-week post vaccine waiting period) before entering the Glebe CC. People who do not provide proof of this status will not be able to participate in any in-person GNAG programming and events. Children who do not meet the vaccination age requirements are exempt from this requirement.

All clients/ participants will [then] need to provide proof of full vaccination (by authorized provider) and identification before they will be admitted into the Glebe Community Centre (175 Third Ave.) and the Studio (174 First Ave.). All GNAG staff, contractors and volunteers will be required to provide proof of full vaccination.

For those in our community who are unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons, we will consider how their individual needs can be accommodated on a case-by-case basis, while continuing to protect the health and safety of all members in our community. 

Screen protocols to restrict access to those who are not well, have been recently exposed to active COVID cases or have travelled outside of Canada will continue to apply.

Please read carefully, by agreeing to this document, you will be assuming risks and waiving certain rights.

I agree to release, waive, and discourage the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group, as well as its employees, officials, agents, and volunteers, from all liability to me, and to the participant, and to my heirs, executors and administrators, that we have, or may have in the future, for all loss or damage and from any claims or demands for such loss or damage on account of personal illness, injury, and damage including death or property loss, however caused, as a result of the participant’s participation in this program or activity.

Indemnification:
I hereby agree to indemnify and save harmless the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group, including but not limited to, its employees, officials, agents, volunteers and Board of Directors from any and all liability for any property damage or personal injury to any third party resulting from the participant’s participation in this program or activity.
