The Importance of Early Registration

It is important to register early for the trips and programs offered by Mallinckrodt because theaters, restaurants and instructors require several weeks notice for confirmation. In order to meet these deadlines, decisions must be made well in advance whether or not to cancel programs. We do not want to disappoint anyone, so please register early.

Registration, Cancellation & Refund Policy

Reservations are taken on a first-come, first-serve basis payable at the time of registration. If you must cancel out of a day trip, refunds will be issued only if we are able to fill the opening from a wait list. There is a 10% service charge, or a minimum of $5 on all trip cancellations. A full refund is provided when we cancel a program or activity due to low registration.
