Before you register, you may wish to view our digital version of our Recreation Activity Guide.
Inside you will find day camp, public swim, lesson schedules, admission fees, hours of operation, and related policies.
ONLINE: Over half of our families are now using recConnect to view recreation program information, and to register online. Credit card only accepted. Online registrations and payment must be received no later than 11:59pm on the Thursday preceding the week of enrolment.
Please note, family discounts and activities purchased with subsidy are not accepted online. Please come visit us in person.
IN PERSON: Registration will be accepted in person at the Stratford Rotary Complex, 353 McCarthy Road, Monday through Friday from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm. You are not required to complete a paper registration form, as we will process your registration verbally. Pay by Interac, credit card, cash, or cheque, with cheque payable to the "City of Stratford". A $35.00 fee for NSF cheques will apply. Where applicable, all program fees include taxes. Walk in registrations and payment must be received by no later than 12:00pm on the Friday preceding the week of enrolment. Phone registrations NOT accepted.
We recommend you register early, as delayed registration could result in activity cancellation. If your activity is cancelled due to insufficient enrolment, you may transfer to another activity (subject to availability), or receive a full refund.
Provided an activity withdrawal is requested 5 business days prior to the program start date, refunds will be issued less a $25 per activity, per participant administration fee. Pro-rated refunds will be granted with a Doctors' certificate, and no later than half way through the activity program. ALL REFUND REQUESTS MUST BE MADE in person at the Stratford Rotary Complex, 353 McCarthy Road, Monday through Friday from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm. In place of a refund, we will gladly credit your account, with the credit to be used by the family, in full, to the end of the next calendar year.
The Community Services Department will contact you ONLY if an activity/program is full, or if there is an issue with your registration. If you are not contacted, please consider yourself enrolled.
A family discount is available for families with 3 or more children participating in full week programs. You will receive $10.00 off the 3rd or more child participating in the same program, and in the same week/session of registration. The family discount is not currently offered online. Please register in office, at the Stratford Rotary Complex, to take advantage of this offer.
