WISDOM FAMILY CAMPS
Family Camps are an important part of the WISDOM experience. Sessions are led by qualified instructors, but beyond learning together, time is built in to each camp for home schooling parents and children to connect and share with each other. Respect, generosity and community are essential elements of WISDOM Camps.

Families are required to have at least one parent participate with their children. If your family is coming with younger children who cannot participate, it's important to have two parents attend, or to arrange with another family to swap out participation with older children and minding younger children. Each event will have slightly different needs, so let us know if you have questions about how much involvement is needed.
Please note whether or not meals are included in the price, and plan accordingly. Having you provide some or all of your own meals helps us to keep camps as affordable as possible. Potlucks are a great way to get to know fellow campers and are often part of an event.
Register early. Many camps fill up quickly and have limited space, so pay close attention to registration deadlines. Please register as soon as possible, and no later than any posted deadline. This allows us to plan for the needs of the camp in advance.
- You may use an internal purchase order if you have funding available and if you register for the camp before May 21. Many families wait to send in receipts until they have booked all of their camps and workshops for the year so that funding is used first for registrations.
- WISDOM accepts Visa and Master Card, as well as Visa Debit. We will issue a receipt which you could then use to claim funding for applicable charges when funding is next released.
- WISDOM accepts cheques, made out to The Gilbertine Institute or to WISDOM Home Schooling.
Remember, an event can't run without sufficient numbers to offset costs. Because we don't charge much more than absolutely necessary to cover costs, we must have a minimum number of participants registered.
Cancellation: If we have to cancel an event due to low registration, we will refund your money. However, if you cancel within two weeks of a scheduled camp or event, your money can not be refunded. Without the necessary funds, your last-minute cancellation may otherwise close down an entire event.
