Tuition

Privacy Policy: We don’t sell, rent, lease, lend, loan, trade, or make public your name or contact information. Ever.

GI Bill: For GI Bill tuition information, visit our GI Bill page.

Deposit Policy: Your spot on a course is not secured until we receive your deposit. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable. If a course is already full, we will refund 100% of your deposit. Click on the program type above (or scroll down) to determine the deposit.

Methods of Payment: We accept checks, money orders, cash (in person only, never send cash to us or anyone else), wire transfers and credit cards via PayPal. If interested in a wire transfer, contact us for details. Our preferred method of payment are money orders and checks. They should be sent to our New Hampshire address:

Jack Mountain Bushcraft School
PO Box 94
Wolfeboro Falls, NH 03896

If Paypal Links Don’t Work: Occasionally Paypal changes how their links work. If you’re unsuccessful making the paypal buttons work, you’re not alone. When this happens, you can go to this link and enter the payment amount.

Cancellation and Refund Policy: With cancellations more than 60 days in advance of the course or trip, the tuition, less the deposit, will be refunded. With cancellations less than 60 days prior to the start of the course, all monies are non-refundable and non-transferable. These policies reflect the fact that we do not overbook, cancelled spaces are very difficult to fill at the last minute, and that the vast majority of costs are incurred in preparing for a course/trip.

Travel Insurance: We recommend that all participants consider purchasing travel insurance, which will refund your tuition if you choose to, or are forced to leave a course or trip early early. Check out Travelguard.com and InsureMyTrip for travel insurance. They cover non-refundable, prepaid expenses such as travel and tuition.

Medical Insurance: We recommend that all participants have medical insurance.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
