REGISTRATION POLICIES

Registration is done on a first- come, first serve basis, with priority given to Leominster residents.
Non-residents wishing to register for a non-trip program will be allowed only if space permits, with a $5.00 increase in fee. Non-residents will be placed on a waiting list and notified when space becomes available.
For a trip program, a deadline will be set for six (6) weeks prior to the scheduled trip for residents to have priority over non-residents. After the deadline, registrations will then be open to everyone for one week. If the trip is not filled to capacity, it may be cancelled at that point and all money will be refunded. It is important to register early to ensure that a trip will take off.
If registration is received by mail and there are no openings in that program, you will be put on a waiting list and contacted by phone. We will return your checks if no openings arise.
We also reserve the right to cap the registrations for any program based on availability of personnel, facilities, or any other factors affecting the programs.
