Information for Guest Groups
Cedarkirk is open to small groups currently. We are following the recommendations of the CDC and the Florida Department of Health for best practices regarding the health and safety of our staff and guests. Some things might look a little different than they have in the past, but we look forward to providing a safe place for you to relax and reconnect with God and with nature.
Please review these information sheets. They contain lots of information on what we’re doing to keep you safe, and what we ask of you.
We recognize that with rapidly changing updates and recommendations, churches, groups, and families are in a state of uncertainty as they make the decisions they feel are best for everyone. Please review the temporary adjustments to our cancellation policies below as you make the safest and most responsible decision for your group or event.
Guest Group / Event Cancellation
Our standing cancellation policy dictates that any event cancelled fewer than 90 days prior its start is subject to a cancellation fee equal to the deposit made. It also states that events may be rescheduled by approval of the Executive Director with a small financial penalty (see your group’s contract for the complete cancellation policy details).
In light of the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we are extending the following temporary adjustments to our cancellation policy for groups that booked prior to the onset of the pandemic:
- Reschedule of reservations: Guest groups may transfer their non-refundable deposit to a similar-sized reservation within the next 12 months at no penalty.
- Site Closure: Groups affected by Cedarkirk’s temporary closure may either donate their deposit or request a refund of the deposit.
- Availability: All reservation transfers are subject to availability. If a reservation transfer is not possible due to lack of availability, the deposit may be donated to Cedarkirk or refunded.
- **Please know that Cedarkirk’s fees and cancellation policy support and sustain Cedarkirk’s year-round ministry, and will help sustain us during this difficult time.
