7. Changes to Itinerary:

a. Nome Schoolhouse reserves the right to make modifications to the retreat or class itinerary, including activity schedules, instructors, and accommodations if necessary. We will make reasonable efforts to inform participants of any such changes.

We strongly advise against making any travel arrangements until within 29 days of the retreat’s start date for the following reasons:

1. In case circumstances prevent your attendance.
2. In case there’s insufficient interest in a workshop.
3. In case of unforeseen circumstances or adverse weather conditions.

  • A minimum of 4 students is required per workshop. If this minimum is not met 30 days before the start date, the workshop may be canceled. You will be notified via email, and a full refund will be issued. Room accommodations are included in our rates, so there’s no need to worry about that. We recommend purchasing trip insurance in case you may be unable to attend.
  • We cannot be responsible for issuing refunds, credits, or transfers for classes missed due to illness, emergencies, or events beyond our control. If we cancel a workshop, all funds will be promptly refunded.
  • In the event of Nome Schoolhouse canceling the workshop for any reason, students will receive a 100% refund, which represents our full responsibility.
  • If the originally scheduled guest teacher is unable to attend for any reason, we reserve the right to cancel the workshop or reschedule with another teacher.
  • Please send student cancellations via email to [email protected].
  • Cancellation within 45 days before the first day of class results in the non-refundable deposit. If there’s a waitlist and we successfully fill your spot, you’ll receive a full refund, minus a $50 processing fee.
  • No refunds, credits, or transfers are available for cancellations made less than 30 days before the workshop’s start date. If there’s a waitlist and we successfully fill your spot, you’ll receive a full refund, minus a $50 processing fee.
