Student Transfer, Cancellation and Withdrawal
Course Registration Transfer
To transfer or change your registration from one camp date to another, we must receive your request in writing two weeks before the course start dates. Transfers are based on camp availability.
Withdrawal and Refund Eligibility
Payment is required in full upon booking. The college accepts credit card or cash payments. If for any reason you are unable to attend your boot camp, you may reschedule provided you notify us of the cancellation two weeks prior to camp. All bootcamps are non-refundable.
Other Incidental Charges may include:
- Additional staff if a group booking is over 16 guests.
- Beverages: Sodas, mineral waters and other soft drinks. Additional wine and/or champagne (special preferences to be requested prior to the event)
Holland College and The Culinary Institute of Canada reserve the right to cancel, postpone or combine classes, to limit registration and to alter course content, instructors, dates, or times. Registrants are notified of class change by telephone or e-mail before the course start date. Full refunds are issued for cancelled or rescheduled courses. *Please note there are minimum class sizes required in order to host a culinary bootcamp.* Should this minimum number not be met, culinary bootcamps will be cancelled and current registered participants will be notified of this change.
Under the terms of this agreement, Holland College and The Culinary Institute of Canada is reserving the group space for your group's requirements. Therefore, in the unlikely event your group cancels (custom boot camps only), the penalty based on the potential revenue will be applied as follows:
- 2 or more weeks in advance - Full refund or credit towards future camp
- Less than 2 weeks - Loss of refund and credit towards future camp
