Photo Policy

Photos are periodically taken of participants in programs or at facilities. Please be aware that photos may be used in the Recreation Brochure, website, pamphlets, flyers or other media and publications.

Class Cancellation

Nothing kills a program faster than waiting until the last minute to register. At some point we have to determine if our enrollment is sufficient to hold class.
If a cancellation occurs, you will be notified and your payment will be refunded in full. If you choose to withdraw from a program you must request your cancellation in writing at least 48 hours in advance of the first meeting to receive a refund. Trip refunds will only be made according to the bus deadline and participant replacement.

If you were planning on signing up and we didn't know that, we may cancel due to lack of interest and you will be out of luck! PLEASE REGISTER AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME. It will be well worth it.

Volunteer Involvement

Volunteering is a great way to gain valuable job experience, personal satisfaction, and have fun while meeting new people. There are a variety of opportunities. The City of Galesburg Recreation Division will work with you and/or your group to develop an opportunity for volunteer involvement. After choosing a project, the Superintendent of Recreation and the Recreation Supervisors will meet with you to help with introductions, directions and to answer questions.

Discrimination Policy 

The City of Galesburg does not discriminate in the provision of programs, services, or activities on the basis of race, color creed, national origin, sex, age or disability. Nor does the City employ standards that would tend to screen out or limit the participation of individuals in any of the program activities or services sponsored by the City of Galesburg on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, sex, age or disability.
