Financial Assistance & Payment Plans
Payment plans are available to families who need a little extra time to pay in full. All summer camps and swim lessons listed in this guide are eligible for deferred payment. This will allow families to reserve their child’s spot NOW, but apply payment closer to the camp and/or swim lesson start date. For more information, please call 650-780-7311 or e-mail recreation@redwoodcity.or. YOU MUST SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN IN PERSON at Red Morton Community Center during the hours of 8:30am-4:30pm (M-F). They cannot be done online. Cancellation Fees Apply. Past registrations may not be put on a plan once they've been paid for.

Payment Plan Rules

  • All summer camps and swim lessons within the guide are eligible.
  • A non-refundable registration deposit of $25 PER CAMP/SWIM
    is required. This will allow you to reserve your child’s spot in a camp now, but defer payment until later.

The remaining balance of camp fees are due on the following dates:

Accounts that are not paid in full by 4:30pm on the due date, will have all registrations cancelled, and the $25 will be forfeited. No exceptions.

If you would like to apply for financial assistance, please pick up a form at Red Morton Center. Availability is limited and is allocated by need on a first come, first serve basis. All supporting documents and applications must be submitted to the Red Morton Front Desk by May 29, 2015 at 4:30pm.

We’re Only Human
With so much planning, sometimes we make mistakes. Occasionally, locations change, number of classes change, and of course we have typos. Please read your receipts carefully, we will correct any changes in locations, times, dates, and fees here, as well as alert you of any additional items you may need for your camps. You can check our classes against our website as any changes or corrections will be reflected there.
