Refunds and Deposits

Posted April 13, 2020

Although the Parks & Recreation office remains closed, staff is working from home and we are all looking forward to the time we can all be back together. The health and safety of our community is our top priority.   For further information on City of Northampton COVID-19 updates please visit the City website: http://northamptonma.gov/2104/COVID-19-Coronavirus

We here at Northampton Parks & Rec are aware that school closing dates and public health requirements may change between now and June. To secure a spot, you are encouraged to register for the camp/program weeks of your choice now. Don’t worry, if your situation changes and you need a refund, we will do that. We are also taking partial payments for some programs, see below, rather than the full fee that was required in the past. 

Park & Rec Program Summer Policy Updates

  • In the event that our camp and summer program schedules change due to the health situation, or your situation changes, we will offer full refunds.
  • In the event the program is running and a refund is needed because your plans have changed, you will receive a full refund as long as you request it at least two weeks before the session/program you have registered starts. In that case, no penalties or fees will be assessed.
  • We have also changed our policy to allow for $25 deposits for sessions of certain programs, rather than full payment.  This applies to: 
    • Safety Village
    • KidZone
    • Camp Hamp
    • Teen Expeditions
    • The Skills and Drills Programs: Basketball, Soccer, Lacrosse

Online Registration is not available at this time. We are awaiting further guidance regarding the operation of camps this summer.
