“Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey is honest and fair and we understand COVID has left many wondering what would happen if it is not safe to travel in 2022. Our position allows us to be flexible and offer a 100% refund if Broadway goes dark again provided your monies are returned by the theaters and workshop hosts to GSNNJ. We have a long business history with our providers. They have refunded our previous purchases at 100% due to COVID." At this time, the theaters and workshop educators have not provided an updated refund policy that is different from the above.
