Financial Assistance
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. Business hours are M-F 8:30am-4:30pm. 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 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:

  • Due Friday, May 24 at 4:30pm: weeks of June 17 - July 12, 2013
  • Due Friday, June 28, at 4:30pm: weeks of July 15 - August 30, 2013
