Hermiston Parks & Recreation Withdrawal/Refund Policy

We recognize that you may need to withdraw from a program for a variety of reasons. Because our programs are self-supporting, we rely on registration fees to operate them. If you withdraw from a program 7 days prior to the beginning date, a refund may be issued (less $10 processing fee). A credit may be issued to participants for withdrawal within 7 days of the first date. Beyond the first day of a program, no refunds will be issued for a program withdrawal.
