DARA Program and Web Site Policies

DARA policies and procedures relative to DARA programs and this website are detailed below.  Please feel free to contact the DARA office with questions relating to the below policies.

Program Credit Policy:

DeWitt Area Recreation Authority program credits will be issued to participants that wish to be removed from a program after the last day of the early registration period and prior to the second date the program meets (Exception: Adult team sports*). After the program has met for the second time, no credit or refund will be granted. There will be a $5.00 administrative fee withheld for all credits. Credits can be used up to one calendar year from the date it was issued, and can only be used by the participant or members of the immediate family.

*Adult team sports refunds will only be issued prior to the end of the registration period. A $5.00 administrative fee will be withheld from all adult team sports refunds.

Refund Policy:

Full refunds will be given to participants that have registered for a program which has been canceled by the DeWitt Area Recreation Authority.

Full refunds will also be given to participants that wish to be removed from a program if notification is received prior to the end of the early registration period.

Refunds may take 7-10 business days to process.

Cancellation Procedure:

Most classes and activities are fully supported by registration fees. If a sufficient number of people do not register for the class, we will notify participants immediately following the registration period and send the registered participants a full refund. If you have registered for a program but you've changed your mind and would like to be removed from the program, please review our Refund Policy (shown above).
