As we continue to do our best to stay up to date on what is happening around the world and here in Sandwich, we want to assure you that we will continue to keep you informed on our Department’s plans for summer.  Please note: that this situation is fluid and things will be constantly changing as new information and dates become available. We understand that this can be stressful on our families both emotionally, and financially. Therefore, we would like to reiterate that the Sandwich Recreation Department is committed to working with our families to make the Super Fun Summer Program accessible to all our registered participants.  As always we will continue to work with each family on an individual basis as needed. With that being said we would like to take a moment to update you on the All Day Super Fun Summer Program information as of 3/24/2020.

Refund Information: As of today 3/27/2020- it is the Sandwich Recreation Departments intention to run the Super Fun Program as scheduled beginning Tuesday , June 30, 2020. We understand this date and situation is fluid as new health and safety information and guidelines are set into place over the next few weeks and months. We also appreciate our families concerns of a possible cancellation and the financial effects that would have.

As of today our Super Fun refund policy is still as stated:

“NO refunds will be granted after May 31st.- minus any service fee’s accessed at check out.

A service fee of 2.75% is added to all credit/debit card transactions. The Service Fee is automatically assessed by a third party payment technology company at the point of check out and once the transaction is completed the funds are transferred directly to that company.  Therefore, the Town of Sandwich receives absolutely no additional revenue from the assessed service fee and do not have access to this money for a refund. Please note at the point of check out everyone must sign off on the service fee, and the statement clearly states the service fee is non-refundable, even if the payment to which it relates is refunded/credited.”

That being stated , if the Recreation Department needed to cancel the Super Fun Summer program , after the May 31st deadline, we would then evaluate the situation and honor a program registration refund to our families, minus any credit card services paid.

As always it is the Sandwich Recreation Departments intention to make the program affordable and accessible to all families, if you would like to set up an individual  payment plan that works better for your family please just let us  know. We will continue to keep you updated on any program changes as they become available

We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation as this summer evolves. As always we look forward to a fun filled summer with your child.

Stay well,

The Sandwich Recreation Department
