TERMS OF SERVICE

CANCELLATION Beam Center reserves the right to cancel any workshop due to low enrollment. In the event of a workshop cancellation, you will be notified 1 week prior to the start of the workshop. If we cancel a workshop that your child is enrolled in, you will have the option to select another workshop or receive a full refund. Please sign up early to ensure workshops proceed as scheduled.

WITHDRAWALS AND REFUNDS If you withdraw your child from a workshop at least one week prior to the date of the first class, you will receive a full refund. Withdrawals after this date, but prior to the second class, will receive a refund, minus a $45 cancellation charge. There are no refunds for withdrawing after the second class of the program. For Day Camps @ Inventgenuity, there is a non-refundable $250 deposit due at registration.

MISSED SESSIONS Unfortunately, we can't prorate workshops for missed sessions. There are no refunds or make-ups for missed classes. If Beam Center is closed due to weather or other events, the class will be rescheduled.

REGISTRATION TERMS I hereby agree to enroll my child as a participant at Beam Center's Inventgenuity Workshops ("IW"), subject to these terms and pay the tuition in advance of the first session of my Workshop(s) of choice. I represent that I am a custodial parent or legal guardian of the child I am enrolling. 

In case of emergency, I hereby request and authorize any physician, hospital and health care provider to provide medical treatment promptly for my child/ward, whether or not I may be contacted and informed and with the understanding that the family will be notified as soon as possible. To my knowledge my child is in good physical and mental health, and I know of no reason why my child cannot participate in all activities offered to him or her. I understand that no medications will be administered by IW.

I fully understand IW reserves the right to dismiss in its sole discretion a child whose condition, conduct, influence, or behavior is deemed by the IW to be unsatisfactory or detrimental to the best interests of the IW or who violates the IW Policies and Regulations.

I understand the risks involved in IW activities. I realize that no environment is risk-free and I accept responsibility and grant permission for my child to participate in all IW activities, program excursions and special outings as planned by the IW. Knowing that orderly operation of the IW is of utmost importance, I have instructed my child on the importance of and agree to comply with all IW policies and regulations, including enrollment and withdrawal of participants. 

IW is not responsible for my child's equipment or personal belongings while in transit, at IW or if lost or damaged.

I understand that IW closes at 6pm. There is a late fee of $15 per 15 minutes payable directly to the staff member who stays with your child. No child will be permitted to remain in the workshop building later than 6pm. I understand that no refunds will be made for incidental absences, including, but not limited to illness or vacation. 

I give permission for IW and Open Source to use photographs, video and/or audio tape recordings of my child and samples of his or her art or literary work, or letters written to us, on our web site, promotional video, brochure, newsletter and reports.
