Department staff will be providing updates to those who are currently registered for summer camps. Camps must still meet minimum registration requirements in order to be held.

For classes and events that have been cancelled due to COVID-19, participants will receive a full credit on their accounts.  Participants electing to withdraw will be given a pro-rated refund and administrative fees for Summer program refunds, including summer camps, will be waived.  Participants who prefer to have their registration fee balances refunded are asked to contact our Administrative Assistant via email at dsanders@townofcarrboro.org

Future Classes and Events
The Recreation, Parks, & Cultural Resources Department will continue to evaluate future classes and events.  Adjustments, such as reduction of class sizes and/or changes to program delivery methods, including social distancing and other public health strategies, may need to be implemented to ensure the health and well-being of participants.  We will continue to provide updates as they occur.
