How Do We Register For Tween/Teen Programs?

Please complete registration form with payment:

 On your registration form, be sure you indicate:

  • Whether your Tween/Teen must remain with a Recreation Leader on the trips OR if your tween/teen has permission to stay with a buddy and check in with Recreation Leaders at designated times
  • Whether or not your Tween/Teen may sign-in and sign-out each day

Please Note:
Please provide details regarding your child's medical needs and/or any physical, emotional or developmental disabilities they may have.  Safety is of the utmost importance for all ARPD participants.  Providing ARPD with this information is necessary so that we may determine if and how we can safely support your child.  Accommodations are made on a case-by-case basis with a Program Supervisor.

All participants are required to act responsibly and with respect towards other persons and property during any ARPD sponsored activity.  Failure to do so may result in loss of privileges for the day or other disciplinary measures as deemed necessary.  No refunds if participant is suspended.
