If Adults fail to fulfil these requirements they will not be allowed on site and will not be eligible for a refund.
- Unit Leaders are responsible for ensuring Leader to Participant ratios are satisfied. However, the WINGS 2020 Camp Leader withholds the right to restrict Leader numbers for units where there are excessive Leaders in relation to the number of participants, if this is to the detriment of the number of Participants that can attend.
- Places at WINGS 2020 are allocated subject to the organising teams right to alter or vary the programme without being obliged to refund all or any part of the fee. This may include the publicised activities.
- The Participants, Leaders and Volunteers must comply with all relevant statutes, safety announcements and venue regulations whilst attending the event.
- Breach of any of these conditions or any unacceptable behaviours likely to cause damage, nuisance, injury, criminal action, bring The Scout Association, Girlguiding or WINGS 2020 into disrepute will be addressed by the WINGS 2020 Camp Leader who will decide appropriate outcome (after taking appropriate advice) up to and including a request to leave the event. Any request to leave the event will be the decision of the WINGS 2020 Camp Leader and will be at the cost of the person or unit being requested to leave.
- Participants, Leaders or Volunteers must not undertake any trade or commercial activity on site without the prior written permission of the WINGS 2020 Camp Leader.

Both parties will use reasonable efforts to mitigate the effect of a force majeure event. If such event continues for more than 90 days, either party may cancel unperformed services upon written notice. This section does not excuse either party’s obligation to take reasonable steps to follow its normal disaster recovery procedures or Unit’s obligation to pay for services provided. If WINGS 2020 has to be cancelled due to circumstances beyond the control of the organisers, money will be refunded to the extent that money has not already been spent or committed to be spent. This is likely to mean that no fees can be refunded. Such circumstances may include, but are not limited to, closure of the park due to the death of a Senior Member of the Royal Family or an outbreak of a Public Health concern.
