Program Registration

You may register for programs online via credit card (see note below) or with cash or check in the Recreation Office.

Please plan accordingly as registration closes 1 week prior to the Program Start date (unless otherwise stated). This allows us to staff correctly, maintain proper rosters, etc. Thank you!

Note: There is a fee associated with using MX Merchant, a service that securely sends payments online. The fee is approximately 3.25%. The Town of Grafton does not receive any portion of the convenience fees. Please note, the convenience fee is non-refundable, even if a program cancels or refunds are issued. When paying by credit or debit card online, the charge will be listed as Grafton Rec myRec on your statement. myRec does not store your credit card information and accepts Visa, Mastercard and Discover.

Refund / Credit Policy

The Recreation Office must be notified in writing or via e-mail no later than 10 business days prior to the start of the program requesting your withdrawal and refund/credit request. There will be a $20.00 fee if you must cancel or switch a class or activity once your registration has been processed. The cancellation/ change fee applies to each activity/program that needs to be altered. Grafton Recreation reserves the right to make schedule changes to better serve our participants or to cancel/combine instructional classes and programs due to insufficient enrollment.  If your withdrawal affects the status of the program (i.e., the number of participants drops below the minimum to run), and we are unable to fill your spot, you may only be eligible for up to a 25% refund or credit. 

 A full refund will be issued, less any classes attended, with a documented medical illness that prevents participation in the program.

A full or partial refund will be issued under the program participants name or a make-up will be scheduled if the Recreation Department must cancel a class due to the following (the processing fees are not refundable): 

  1. Weather which closes school buildings (Snow/Blizzard, Tornado, Hurricane, etc.)
  2. Mechanical issues (Power outage, no water supply, etc.)
  3. Fire Evacuation
  4. Town wide health emergency or closure 

No refunds or makeups will be issued for circumstances including, but not limited to: 

  1. If you should choose not to attend for any reason (outside of a documented medical illness)
  2. If cancellation notice is provided less than 10 business days before the program starts. 

Every attempt will be made to schedule a make-up class at the end of the program session, which varies based on the program and staffing/ space/schedule availability. Grafton Recreation reserves the right to review, approve, and/or deny any situations outside of the ones mentioned above. 

Refunds will be processed in the following ways:

  • A household credit can be applied to your account for future program registrations.
  • A credit card refund can be processed (1-2 week lead time) on the credit card that was used in the initial transaction.
  • A check refund can be processed (6-8 week lead time) and mailed to your home address.

Cancellation Policy

Classes are cancelled if Grafton Public Schools are closed due to weather. If a class needs to be canceled due to weather, you will be notified via email no later than 1 hour prior to the start of the program. Efforts will be made to make up classes due to weather, but are not guaranteed. If a class is canceled due to an illness/absence of an instructor, efforts are made to hold a make-up class. If a participant is unable to participate in the make-up class, a refund/credit will not be offered. If a make-up class cannot be held, you will be issued your choice of a refund or credit for the pro-rated amount.

Waiting List Policy

If you are placed on a waiting list, and you are informed a spot has opened and you agree to take it, you will have 24 hours from being notified to make payment. If payment is not received within the timeframe, the open spot becomes available to the next waiting list participant.
