Refund Policy

Class Refund Policy—Effective Monday, February 3, 2014, for Summer 2014 Session Classes, Activities, Trips, Tours, & Summer Camp Programs

The Center issues refunds when the Center cancels a class or activity. The Center also issues refunds when the Center changes a class or an activity and the change makes it impossible for the patron to continue with the class. Please note, the Center cancels a class one week prior to the start date if the class does not meet minimum enrollment.

All refund requests must be submitted in writing to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Refunds will be made according to the type of payment received; if the fee is paid by check, a refund check will be issued by Fairfax County within four (4) to six (6) weeks of the date on which the request is received.

Once a class, camp or activity is in session, refunds may be granted only for medical reasons or for extenuating circumstances as determined by the General Programs Director and the Registrar. Medical requests must be accompanied by a doctor’s note (verification).

Class/Activity Refunds
Patrons who submit refund requests 14 days or more before the start date of a class or activity, will be granted a refund, minus a $25 processing fee. Refunds requested less than 14 days before the start date of the class or activity will not be granted.
