Initial Deposit is $250, due by January 16, 2023
Total Projected Costs:
Total cost per participant for Northern Tier is variable depending on the trek, destination, travel costs, and time of year. You should expect to pay at least $2,000 for a fall or summer trek, and $1,000 for a Winter Trek. Actual costs may be higher. A more precise projection will be available as we select our target treks based on interest surveys.
Deposit and Financial Commitment Policy:
Your deposit is required to secure your spot on a high adventure experience. Once paid, it commits you to your FULL SHARE of trip costs.
T143 makes nonrefundable financial commitments to the high adventure base and other vendors based on your stated intention to participate. For that reason, participants are required to pay a deposit up front, which commits them to the full cost of the trip.
In order to receive relief from your financial commitment after paying your deposit, you would need to secure a Suitable Substitute who commits to attend in your place. “Suitable Substitute” means that the new participant must meet general eligibility requirements according to BSA rules and T143 rules, must contribute to an allowable youth/adult ratio for the crew/group, and must be approved by the T143 Scoutmaster.
Depending on the timing of your cancellation, some costs beyond the deposit may be nonrefundable (e.g., airfare) if they have already been incurred on your behalf.
