Terms

  • At the time you make your reservation, we would appreciate a realistic head count for your group so that we can best accommodate you and other school groups. We require a 1:10  adult to student ratio, so please factor chaperones in to your count accordningly.
  • A 50% deposit is due three months prior to your visit and is non-refundable. Payments can be made by cash, orginizational check, money order or credit card. We cannot accept a purchase order as a form of payment.
  • One month before your scheduled visit, we will need a confirmed number for your group and payment in full. Payment is non-refundable. After this time, your group size can increase (subject to program availability) but cannot decrease. Due to increased demand and limited capacity for programs like Surgery Live!, Discovery Labs and documentary films, we can no longer process refunds for no-shows the day of your visit.

  • We cannot process individual payments for group visits. Group visits must be paid for with one form of payment.
  • We will do our best to accommodate additional guests in your group on the day of your visit, but cannot guarantee there will be space in the same activities as the rest of your group if these programs are at capacity.

  • Contact our Group Sales Coordinator at groupsales@whitakercenter.org or call 717-724-3862 for assistance with your visit.
