Refunds

Because we are a relatively small community, many of our program enrollments are also small. When you register for a class, we depend on your participation to make it successful. As a result, refunds will be awarded sparingly, primarily for medical or other emergency situations. Refunds or transfers may not be granted for any program, activity, or event cancelled due to inclement weather or other circumstances beyond the control of the Recreation Department.
