Refunds for one-day activities are not possible after the event has taken place.  Call 717-920-9515 during office hours to request a refund. E-mail requests will not be accepted.
  • Cancellations - West Shore Rec reserves the right to cancel any program due to insufficient registration. A full refund will be given. (Online convenience fees will be refunded as a credit on account for future enrollments).

  • Information on Age - To be eligible for a program, a participant must be the proper age by the start or by the end of the program. All age requirements are set to benefit the participant and make instruction more consistent for the program leader. In some instances, the requirements have been set for the participant's safety.

Cancelled Activities? Too often quality activities and trips are cancelled because too many people wait until the last minute to register. Almost every activity has a minimum number of enrollees needed to cover the expenses or to make it enjoyable (think team sports). If you see an activity you like, donít hesitate to sign up to recreate!
