Not Available during COVID Restrictions

At this time the Center is only able to accommodate a limited number of activities which do not include trips. We look forward to resuming these when COVID restrictions can be lifted.

The information below refers to earlier times.


Trip Sign-up and Payment Policy

  • Sign up for trips at the 2nd Floor Reception Desk.
  • When you sign up for a trip you must pay a $5 non-refundable trip fee.  If the trip is $5 or less than $5, then you just pay that.
  • Final payment is due one week prior to the trip.  Final payment is the cost of the trip less the $5 deposit.  If final payment is not made, you forfeit your seat and deposit.
  • If you cancel your reservation less than one week before the trip is to depart, you forfeit your entire payment unless we can fill your space or you are canceling for certified illness.
  • If the trip is canceled, deposits and payments will be refunded.
  • Deposits, payments, and refunds are not exchangeable or interchangeable. Refunds are prepared after the trip date.
