DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE!! Nothing spoils a good program quicker than everyone waiting until the last minute to register. If there are not enough registrations by a certain date, the program may be canceled. Coming in on the day the program begins won’t resurrect it, so please register early.

RESIDENCY-DEFINED: A  person whose primary residence, either as an owner or renter, is in Newtown, is considered a Newtown resident. (No exceptions to this rule.) Proof of residency is required.

Non-resident registrations will be accepted at the beginning of registration, however, there are limited spots.
Not all programs allow for non-resident participation.
Non-residents will be required to pay an additional $15.00 per program.
Non-residents may participate in bus trips.
All programs are self-supporting and a commitment needs to be made to instructors and staff. Therefore NO REFUNDS will be given after the start of a program EXCEPT for medical reasons upon receipt of a physician's note. Communication to Parks and Recreation at onset of the condition is required. Refunds for cancelations made within one week prior to the start of a program are issured, but a $10.00 processing fee will be charged.
Programs held at the Newtown Schools follow the school schedule, therefore, if schools are closed or canceled Parks and Recreation programs at the schools will be canceled. Programs held at the Newtown Yourth Academy or an off site location do not always follow the school schedule. In the event of inclement weather or other factors beyond our control, programs may need to be canceled. Please sign up for our automatic cancelation notices on our website, by clicking email subscriber in the lower right corner or call our cancelation number 203-270-4340 and press 1.
All Parks and Recreation programs are on a first-come, first served basis.

As mentioned earlier, Parks and Recreation cannot be responsible for loss of mail or postal delays.
Program participants are reminded NOT TO PARK IN FIRE LANES, per order of the Fire Marshall. Fire lanes are those areas in front of each school which are painted yellow.
