Waiver, Agreement and Refund Policy
Please read carefully
For many years, thousands of Springettsbury children have participated in a wide variety of fun and safe activities through the Township's Summer Playground Program. This ongoing summer recreation tradition for children ages 6 to 14 includes daily activities such as sports leagues, tournaments, crafts, trips, and special events. Trained staff encourages children to develop more positive use of their leisure time through activities that promote learning experiences and their physical and social development. As the number of children participating has increased, park locations and staff also have grown over the years. It has become increasingly difficult to maintain the program at its current level. The Summer Playground Program includes 9 park sites and 30 staff! We have carefully considered all options to maintain this excellent program at its current level. While recognizing costs and creating program sustainability, we have determined that implementing a registration fee will enable the summer recreation playground program to maintain the same high level of service without any reduction in staff or of any of the 9 playground sites. As a result, the registration fee for the 2018 Summer Playground Program has been established at $25 per child for residents and $30 per child for non-residents. This fee enables us to continue providing the same high quality, safe Summer Playground Program services you and your child have come to expect and rely on.
When registering your child, please understand that payment must be received with your registration form. Although registration will be accepted throughout the summer, we will no longer accept registration forms or payments at any of our park locations. The registration form and payment can be processed online at www.springettsbury.com or you can mail or drop off at the Township Municipal Building located at 1501 Mt. Zion Road. We are open Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm. Registration information for the Summer Playground Program will be on our website in April. Additional information will follow in our summer newsletter in May. The registration fee will cover the various "drop in" services provided at each park location. Weekly field trips are optional and include an additional fee. Refunds will not be issued once the program starts. Please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 717-505-0406 with any questions. We thank you in advance as we prepare to serve the children of Springettsbury this summer.
