General Activity Waitlist Policy
Once maximum enrollment has been reached for activity registration, a participant may elect to be placed on a waitlist. Should additional registration spots become available, those on the waitlist will be contacted in numerical order. Once contacted, if the person is still interested in enrollment in the activity, they will have two business days to make payment for the activity fee. If complete payment is not made within two business days, that person will be removed from the waitlist and the next person on the waitlist will be contacted. If the waitlisted person is no longer interested in registering for the activity, then the next person on the waitlist will immediately be contacted. Additionally, if the waitlisted person declines to respond to the Department of Parks and Recreation within two business days, the next person on the waitlist will be contacted.

Day Camp Waitlist Policy
The General Activity Waitlist Policy applies to the day camps of Adventurers Camp, Kamp Kairphree, and Music and Art Camp; however, there will be a fee of $20 assessed to be placed on the waitlist for each section of camp. Should the participant be taken off the waitlist and enrolled in the camp section, the $20 fee will be applied to the camp section fee. Once contacted, the person will have two business days to pay the balance due for the camp section. If the person remains on the waitlist and is not enrolled in the camp, there will be NO refund and NO credit for the $20 waitlist fee. This will ensure that only those seriously interested in attending the day camp will place themselves on the waitlist.

Town of Greenwich Anti-Discrimination Policy
The Town complies with all applicable federal and state laws regarding non-discrimination, equal opportunity, affirmative action, and providing reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities. If you require an accommodation to participate, please contact the Commissioner of Human Services at 203-622-3800 or [email protected] as soon as possible in advance of the event.
