Refund Policy

·   All class ticket sales are considered a donation to Fox Haven and help us to fulfill our mission. Full refunds (minus a 20% processing fee) will be given to any participant canceling at least 30 days prior to the scheduled class date.

About LandBack Tax

Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.

 The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people.

Weather Policy

In the event that inclement weather is predicted ahead of an event, you will receive 48 hours’ notice of cancellation or rescheduling. Otherwise, the event is assumed to be rain or shine. An alternative location may be provided if shelter is needed. We do not offer refunds for postponed events or no-shows. However, if Fox Haven cancels, a full refund will be issued.
