Note on pricing: The above costs for staffing & busing are calculated using a 20 participant minimum. Given the high price of this program, if we receive more than 20 registrations, we will adjust the bus and staffing costs per participant to reflect that. At the end of the program in February, we will issue credits to each participants account equal to the amount saved. This credit will be issued at the end of the program and as can be used on any future program or pool related purchase / registration. Please note that this credit is NOT a refund.
