SOCAPA reserves the right to cancel or alter some aspect of a program, including program itinerary, dates, location or duration, as a result of unforeseen circumstances, or for any other reason. SOCAPA is not responsible for costs incurred by a student’s family in preparing for a program that is altered or cancelled. Student and parent/guardian acknowledge that if student is dismissed or departs for any reason, or chooses to return early from the program, no refunds can be granted. Further, student and parent/guardian are responsible for any and all costs of early departure whether for medical reasons, dismissal, personal emergencies or otherwise. These costs include, but may not be limited to medical evacuation and costs, medical treatment, plane, train, taxi or bus fare, meals, accommodations, and compensation and expenses for staff that may accompany student. Parent/guardian should understand that staff might not accompany students leaving early for any reason on any part of their trip home. In addition, if parent/guardian cannot be reached when and if their teen returns home early, the Emergency Contact Person designated on your SOCAPA application will be contacted for notification and communication purposes.
