- SUMMER SWIMMING LESSONS are taught in the rain. If weather conditions worsen, we then try to conduct Safety Day Activities (videos, poster boards, activity sheets). If the forecast and thunder storms are severe enough, lessons may be cancelled entirely for the day. I encourage you to call Gurney Lane (518-745-4481) in advance and use your own judgment.
We will announce program cancellations here, on our Facebook page, via Twitter, and through the RainedOut Cancellation Alert notification system. To sign up for RainedOut alerts, please click the image below; you can opt for Text or Email alerts.
To withdraw from an activity, participants (caregivers, if registered participant is a child/minor) must notify the Department Office (761-8216) at least 48 hours prior to the start of the program to receive a refund. A cancellation fee of $5 per person, per program will be deducted from the refund. Your refund may be applied to your household as a credit, with no cancellation fee. Once a program or activity has begun, a pro-rated refund (for services used) will only be issued to individuals who are unable to participate because of medical circumstances (i.e. an illness or injury). A $5.00 refund processing fee will be deducted from the total refund.
