Program cancellations are announced on the weather line. If school is canceled due to inclement weather, day programs are cancelled. After school and evening program cancellations will be announced on the weather line. If school is delayed, recreation programs begin as scheduled. Weather updates can also be found on the Home Page.
Participation Participants may only attend the day and time of the program for which they are registered. Only persons registered in a program may participate in that program. Sorry, but visitor/family will not be allowed in classroom unless invited by the instructor.
Program Age Instructors design and develop classes which are age appropriate, therefore, participant must meet that age requirement.
Makeup Classes Every effort will be made to makeup any cancelled class date. However, due to extenuating circumstances, this is not always possible. We apologize for any inconvenience. No refunds will be given.

  • A full refund will automatically be given for any program cancelled by the Department.
  • Full refunds, minus a $10 processing fee, will be given when requested in writing up to one week prior to the start of a program.
  • Once the decision has been made to run a particular program, no refund will be given, minus a $10 processing fee or there is a medical emergency and a doctor’s note must be provided.
  • No refunds will be given for any used portion of a program.
No Smoking Policy In support of providing positive adult role modeling behavior for our children, the Guilford Parks and Recreation Department has adopted a policy that bans smoking in parks and recreation facilities.
Special Needs Policy Individuals who need reasonable accommodations in order to participate are welcome in all programs offered by the Parks and Recreation Department. S.A.R.A.H. Inc., works with us to determine necessary accommodations for people with special needs in order to make programs available to all community members. Our programs and services are designed to be consistent with the principles of inclusion, natural supports, normalization and least restrictive environments.
Scholarship Scholarships are available for all programs based on eligibility, please inquire.
