FarmWonders Policies

General Policies

Prior to participating in a camp or tour at the UBC Farm, you will be required to sign/accept a UBC Acknowledgement of Risk document.  This is a necessary step in registering on-line.  If you are registering through another method, we will provide you with this form by e-mail or in person.

FarmWonders Camp Policies

The FarmWonders Summer Camp age policy requires the child to be 6 by the time camp starts for on-line registration. This ensures that our campers are accustomed to being in classes with large groups of children. We believe this policy helps to ensure your child has a successful and enjoyable time at camp.

Our FarmWonders Spring Break Camp is open to children in grades 1 through 4.

If your child is 12-14, please stay tuned for our one-week FarmWonders Leadership Camp in the summer!

Our camp is designed to reach a large number of campers each summer and our most popular content is repeated within the season.  For these reasons, your child will move up wait-lists on a first-come, first-served basis, only until they have a secured spot in two camps.  Campers who secure spots in more than two camps upon registration may be contacted and refunded for the additional camps.

For the safety of our campers, we ask that children do not pack nuts in their lunches or snacks.

If your child is allergic to nuts, please be aware that our farm facility is not nut-free. Check in with our staff at drop-off and inform them of how we can best support the health of your child.

FarmWonders and the UBC Farm reserve the right to cancel a camp week by 3:00 PM one week prior to the start date. In such cases, all fees for a cancelled program will be refunded, or participants will be given the option of joining another camp week if there is a spot available.

All requests for camp refunds must be made in writing. Cancellations received a minimum of TWO WEEKS (14 days) before the first day of the session will be refunded by credit, less a $30 administrative fee. Pro-rating and refunds are NOT available for days absent, or for any other reasons, including injuries or illness. Cancellations received 0-13 days before the first day of the session will not be eligible for any refund or credit. This includes for reasons such as illness or injury.

Wait-list fees go toward managing our wait-lists and we do not profit from them. Therefore, we do not refund wait-list fees.

If you make it through the wait-list and are registered into the corresponding camp, we will apply the $10 fee toward your outstanding camp tuition.

FarmDiscovery Tours Policies

In the unlikely event that a tour must be cancelled, all fees for a cancelled program will be refunded, or participants will be given the option of rescheduling the tour.

If you cancel more than two full business days before your scheduled tour, we will refund you for amounts over $30.

If you cancel your tour less than two full business days in advance, we regret that we are unable to offer a refund. You will be billed for the booked tour. The only exception to this is in the fall if we are able to resell prepaid pumpkins to another group. Cancellations must be phoned in to the shared phone line at the farm at 604-822-5092 (24 hour voicemail).
