Please read this Waiver carefully as it affects your legal rights in the event of an injury, contraction of a communicable disease, infection and/or damage to property. 

Participants understand that the use of the facilities and/or services may involve risk of bodily injury, property damage, contraction of a communicable disease and/or contraction of a viral or bacterial infection and agree to assume any such risks. In case of illness or accident at our facility, The Salvation Army Community Center is authorized to secure emergency medical treatment at member/participant’s expense. It is up to the participant to consult physicians and other professionals to make sure that they can safely participate in activities and events offered by The Salvation Army Community Center.

Participant also understands and agrees that by registering, they are giving up their right (or the minor for whom they register) to make any claim against The Salvation Army, its agents, employees, and volunteers, including the right to sue them, for bodily injury, property damage, contraction of a communicable disease and/or contraction of a viral or bacterial infection of any type and/or any other loss that they might suffer while using The Salvation Army Community Center facilities and/or services, except as limited by law.

One or two adults living in a household and dependents who are eligible up to the age of 17. At age 18, an individual with a disability or an elderly parent who is living in the same household will remain eligible for the Family membership. Verification of family status and residency may be required. For example utility bill, health insurance, etc.

Any requested change that affects the automatic billing of your membership, including membership cancellation, must be submitted by the 10th of the month to be processed for the following month. If changes occur after the 10th of the month, you will have one more billing before the change takes effect.

If a member cancels or if membership payments lapse for more than 30 days, the appropriate registration fee will be charged to reopen the membership account.

There is a $20 charge for each insufficient funds transaction. This places your membership on hold until payment is received.

Individuals, families, and seniors who cannot afford a community center membership or fees for youth camps and/or group classes can apply for a discount. Eligibility for this program is based on income level. Scholarship applications are available online or at the information desk. Learn more. >

Anyone purchasing a day pass will be required to show photo ID (ages 18+). The Center may use this information to consult public sources to help determine whether a guest may pose unreasonable harm to our patrons, staff or visitors. Your safety is important to us. By showing your photo ID at the front desk, you help The Salvation Army to provide a quality, state-of-the-art, facility where individuals and families can work, play and grow together in a safe and nurturing environment.

Full payment is expected at the time of enrollment. No cash refunds are given unless the program is canceled by The Center. If the program is canceled by the Center, you will be given the choice of a full credit or a cash refund. If you request to cancel your class enrollment five or more days prior to the first class, you will receive a full refund minus a $5 processing fee or you may choose to transfer to another session if available. Requests made less than five days prior to the start date are not eligible for a refund or credit, except in the case of personal emergencies. No credits or pro-rated credits will be issued for missed days of camp or class due to illness, partial attendance, behavior issues, or any other reason.
