Pine Burr Area Council High Adventure Refund Policy

General.  The purpose of this policy is to define the refund policy for High Adventure activities within the Pine Burr Area Council (PBAC). High Adventure activities may include but are not limited to Philmont, Canoe Base, Sea Base, National Jamboree and similar activities endorsed by PBAC.

Concept.  Due to the unique nature of High Adventure activities and the high amount of prepaid fees, refunds will be typically limited as follows:  

  • Initial deposits of $350 are non-refundable once participants are selected. 
  • A suitable replacement must found by the party requesting refund. The replacement must be approved by the contingent leader and all funds must be paid by the replacement prior to refund being issued. Further, refunds will not be provided unless the contingent is filled to capacity. Expenses lost to PBAC will not be refunded.

Procedure.  All requests for refund must be made after the completion of the event and not later than 30 days later.  All requests must be made in writing and directed to the Scout Executive, PBAC, 1318 Hardy Street, Hattiesburg, MS 39401.
