FEES AND REGISTRATION

The cost is priced as a sliding scale and supports you to choose payment that aligns with your household income and the financial health of your family. Please pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This allows others who need to pay less the opportunity to attend.

890-1390 dollars. Tax receipts will be issued for registered dollar amounts above and over 950 dollars.

*please note that our registration fee has increased this year due to an 85 percent increase in transportation costs set by Cathedral Lakes Lodge transportation. The cost to transport each teen to base camp is 250.00

ENSO will be fundraising and writing grants to create bursaries to remove financial barriers for those who wish to attend. We aim to never turn anyone away for lack of funds. If you would like to help make this expedition available for teens in great need, please contact Melissa - melissa@ensosociety.com Your contribution really makes a difference.

In years gone past ENSO has been a financial recipient of grants provided by Telus.

Following payment, an application and waiver will be issued for both parent and teen to sumit. (Applicants must complete the registration form and waiver for review in order to be accpted and considered a viable applicant).

Refunds for accepted applicants will be issued less 150.00 dollars up until 60 days prior to expedition departure date.

This retreat includes;

  • bus ride from Kelowna (2 hours),
  • Alpine truck to base camp (1.5 hours),
  • park permits,
  • 3 meals and snacks each day,
  • trail guides, program facilitation, and support (secular Buddhist teachers, registered clinical counselors, wilderness guides),
  • and endless hours of fun! ,

Please e-mail ENSO if acquiring gear is of concern. We are the recipients of M.E.C. generous support. Tents provided unless you would like to bring your own.
