Registration Policies (children's age, non resident frees, cancellations, refunds)

Age Requirements  

All child programs specify appropriate ages to ensure the capacity of the participants and the course content are balanced.  We will accept registration if the child is, or will be turning the specified age during the course.  Some exceptions may apply. 


Non-City Residents

We receive a significant appropriation of London tax dollars to operate activities.  For this reason, an additional fee is charged to individuals who reside outside of the city.  Non-resident fees are shown in Spectrum as (N).  Additional fees are as follows:

    Program Cost:  $10 to $20          Additional Fee:  $3
    Program Cost:  Over $20            Additional Fee:  $5


Program Changes and Cancellations

We reserve the right to change advertised details or cancel a program when necessary.  This may include rescheduling of classes due to circumstances beyond our control.  Refunds will not necessarily be issued under such circumstances.  We will make every effort to contact you about the cancellation and will take steps to make up the class or compensate participants for lost time. 


Program Integration and Volunteer Assistance

The City of London is committed to providing access to services for all persons.  Persons with special needs are welcome to attend any recreation activity compatible with their interests and abilities.  Participants are encouraged to bring their own volunteer support.  This volunteer could be a friend, spouse, family member or caregiver.  The volunteer is not charged a fee when they attend a program with a paying, registered participant.  


Withdrawal and Refund Policy

If the City of London cancels a recreation program, a full credit or refund is issued.

The effective date of the withdrawal is the date the withdrawal notice is received by the City, regardless of when the participant stops attending the program.

Withdrawal requests made more than 10 business days prior to the start of a program will be credited in full.  This applies to all programs EXCEPT summer day camps and summer swim lessons, which can withdraw up to 3 business days prior to the start date.  The credit can remain on account for up to one calendar year to be used for future programs and services.

Withdrawal requests made 10 business days or less before the program start date or before the start of the 3rd class will be credited 75% of the program fee.  The credit can remain on account for up to one calendar year to be used for future programs and services.  

No refunds or credits will be issued after the 3rd class has started, except under extenuating circumstances.  A medical certificate may be requested to substantiate a refund request due to medical circumstances.

2) Debit/Credit Card refund request - An administration fee of 5% of the program will occur.
