The deposit, cancellation and refund policies for groups attending 2022 L'Taken weekends.


There is an $80 deposit per space requested (both student and chaperone). In the event your group is larger than anticipated, you may add spaces only with written consent from the Religious Action Center and you must submit additional deposits in order for us to confirm your increased group size. The RAC requires that each congregation/group bring at least one chaperone for every 9 students participating.

How do deposits work?

Deposits are applied only for the final number of participants (including chaperones) you bring to the Seminar.

One deposit is applied for every person who attends the seminar, including chaperones. In other words, if a group reserves 20 spots with 20 deposits and only brings 10 people, the group forfeits 10 deposits. Read on for details and cancellation timeline.


All cancellations must be sent in writing to

Between registration and August 15:

  • Groups can choose to forward all their paid deposits to a future registration or receive a full refund.

Between August 16 and forms deadline/10 weeks prior to the weekend:

  • If your group has to cancel their reservation entirely, half of the paid deposits can be applied to a future reservation and half will be withheld due to administrative fees.
  • If your group has to cancel some of spaces from your registration, but will still be attending L'Taken, then half of the deposit ($40) for each cancelled spot can be applied to the final bill or applied to a future registration. Half of the deposit ($40) for each cancelled spot will be withheld due to administrative fees

Between the forms deadline/10 weeks out and the cancellation deadline (2 weeks prior to your weekend)*

  • Entirety of paid deposits for each spot cancelled will be withheld for administrative fees. No other fees apply.

After the Cancellation Deadline (2 weeks prior to your weekend):

  • Full cost of program fees is due. Accounts not paid will be subject to a 1.5% monthly charge.

  • No refunds or application to future reservations will be made during this time period.

Please Note: Cancellations will change your room division and potentially your per person cost.  Individual costs may go up.
