Working With Children Check
We are required to ask all adults attending overnight to have a Working With Children Check.
Every adult coming will need to apply for one before booking. If you do not already have a current Working With Children Check, you will need to fill in an online application and visit a Service NSW location to show them your identification.
This must be done before booking. After we have received your booking will ask you to send us your application number. If this is not provided, your booking will be cancelled and deposits are not refundable.
The check must be complete before the start of the retreat.
Vijayaloka is a meat, smoke, drug and alcohol free retreat centre. Please do not bring any meat, fish, alcohol or drugs. If you need to smoke, please do so well away from the retreat centre.
Your Welfare & Safety
We want you to have a safe and enjoyable time on retreat with us.
If you or your children coming on the retreat have any physical, emotional or mental health difficulties that may affect your participation in the retreat, please contact us before you book so that we can make sure we will be able to accomodate you in the best way.
Please also let us know if you or your children coming on the retreat have any dietary requirements other than requiring plant-based food (all food at Vijayaloka is plant-based) or an allergy to gluten, nuts, garlic and/or onions (options for these are available on the booking form).
Caring For Others
While on retreat we will be living communally, and that means it is important to care for each other. Do not come to Vijayaloka if you or your children are feeling unwell in any way, and please have everyone take a Rapid Antigen Test test on the day of the retreat before setting off. Do not come to Vijayaloka if this test is positive.
Our retreats often book out. The booking cost includes a non-refundable deposit. If you need to cancel your booking, the remaining amount can be transferred or refunded. If you cancel with at least 48 hours notice the deposit can also be transferred onto any other upcoming retreat.
