FROM THE PARKS & RECREATION DEPARTMENT STAFF

Dear Friends and Family, For the past year, we have continually used the word “new” in everything we do. New McHenry Recreation Center, new programs, new department logo and now a new look to our program guide. You have supported your Parks & Recreation Department for ­­­­­several decades, and in return we promise to make this program guide our best yet. We invite you to dig through our fall guide to find all the new ways you can have even more fun with us. We hope you’re ready for a tremendous fall season. In just over six months, the Recreation Center has become a popular destination for all ages to recreate. Excitedly, we have grown our fitness membership to over 1,300 members. But don’t worry, we still have room for a few more good friends! As the weather gets cold it might be time to think about bringing your exercise indoors, so we invite you to give us a try – 1,300 of your neighbors already have. With over 50 group exercise classes to choose from and specialty fitness classes, like TRX training, kettlebell classes and weight training for women, there’s bound to be something you’ll love. The Recreation Center is also host to several exciting programs such as our preschool enrichment classes, youth dance lessons and school age STEM activities. With these established programs thriving, we are excited to offer additional programs this fall such as adult ballroom dance and the holiday time Cookie Fest. Also offered is our first school day-off camp program, which may be a wonderful option for working parents. If you have interest in outdoor activities, then join us for a kayaking adventure or take a trip with our hiking club, and don’t miss the revamped Great McHenry Camp Out event in September! Add in our successful instructional youth sports programs, our popular sports leagues and the medal winning Marlins swim team, and we know you will find many great recreation opportunities for your whole family.

Enjoy the fun this fall and check out the best that McHenry Parks & Recreation has to offer!

The McHenry Fire Protection District, in partnership with local organizations, such as the McHenry Parks & Recreation Department, is pleased to offer Remembering When™, a fall & fire life safety prevention program for older adults in our community. Remembering When was developed by the NFPA Center for HighRisk Outreach and the Centers For Disease Control. It is centered around 16 key safety messages which will be presented over 4 classroom sessions.

ADULT GENERAL PROGRAMS

Hugs Project

According to the Centers For Disease Control and the National Fire Protection Association, falls are the leading cause of death from unintentional injury for those over the age of 65. Consequently, one in five falls results in serious injury, leaving 30% of the victims unable to return to their home. Additionally, seniors are twice as likely to be killed or injured by fires compared to the population at large. Because no single agency can be responsible for reaching every older adult in our community, Remembering When is designed to be implemented by a coalition of local fire department, service clubs, churches, retirement communities, and others. The fire district desires to offer prevention strategies to meet the fire and life safety needs of our older adult community. Remembering When will offer these simple prevention strategies to help keep you safe. This initiative is a first step of EMS Prevention. Attend this free seminar to learn more.

Discipline

All McHenry Parks & Recreation Department (MPRD) programs require a minimum number of participants five business days before a class begins. A maximum number is also listed to ensure quality instruction. Classes may be combined and times modified to facilitate better programs. Receipts are mailed or emailed to those enrolled.

A positive approach is used regarding discipline. Staff periodically reviews rules with participants during program. If inappropriate or unacceptable behavior occurs, prompt resolution will be sought and the Behavior Code of Conduct will used as a guideline. MPRD reserves the right to remove a participant whose actions endanger the safety of him/herself or others.

Residents/Non-Residents Defined

The Behavior Code of Conduct includes:

The term resident refers to McHenry residents who live within the City of McHenry boundaries and who contribute financial support to the City of McHenry through property taxes. Some residents with a McHenry mailing address may not be residents of the City of McHenry. Please contact recreation staff at 815-363-2160 if you need residency information.

Show respect to all participants, staff and volunteers. Follow directions from staff and volunteers. Show respect to equipment, supplies and facilities. Will not use inappropriate, abusive or foul language. Will not show any disruptive or aggressive behavior (hitting, punching, slapping, kicking, biting, etc.), regardless of whether behavior is initiated or in retaliation.

The non-resident fee structure is in place to ensure fairness to our residents. Residents of the City of McHenry contribute financial support to MPRD through property taxes. The City Alderman have elected the non-resident fee structure to make non-resident use of programs and facilities equitable to our residents. “NR” means non-resident.

Family Defined A family is defined as no more than two adults and their unmarried children, up to age 21, residing within the same household, full time. Children ages 22 years and older, other relatives and/or individuals in the same household, are not included in this definition.

Safety is a Priority MPRD recognizes that safety is a top priority to all who visit our parks and facilities. We place an emphasis on safety to ensure that you, as park and facility patrons, have a safe, fun experience. To ensure your parks and facilities are as safe as possible, we need your help. If you see or hear about something that may be unsafe, i.e. broken playground equipment, an animal hole by an athletic field, or anything that you feel may be hazardous, please call us at 815-363-2160.

Care for Your Parks Preserve the natural beauty around you. Please don’t climb trees, cut branches, pick plants or flowers, or approach animals or their nests. Dispose of litter properly. Please recycle this brochure when finished.

REGISTRATION

Understandably, not all hazards and dangers can be foreseen. Depending on the particular activity, participants must understand that certain risks, dangers and injuries due to inclement weather, slip and falls, poor skill level or conditioning, carelessness, horseplay, unsportsmanlike conduct, premises defects, inadequate or defective equipment, inadequate supervision, instruction or officiating, and all other circumstances inherent to indoor and outdoor recreational activities exist. In this regard, it must be recognized that it is impossible for the City of McHenry Parks & Recreation Department and McHenry Marlins to guarantee absolute safety. WAIVER AND RELEASE OF ALL CLAIMS AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK: Please read this form carefully and be aware that in signing up and participating in the programs listed above, you will be expressly assuming the risk and legal liability and waiving and releasing all claims for injuries, damages or loss which you or your minor child/ward might sustain as a result of participating in any and all activities connected with and associated with these programs (including transportation services and vehicle operations, when provided).

FITNESS CENTER TERMS & CONDITIONS The “Initial Membership Agreement” is for a period of twelve months from the date of acceptance, unless purchase is otherwise noted as a “punch pass” or “seasonal” membership. Any upgrades to membership within the first year will modify the existing billing, and downgrades may not occur until the first twelve month period is completed. If membership is cancelled within the first twelve month period of the agreement, a cancellation fee equal to the remaining monthly dues of the membership will be charged. A written notice of intent to cancel must be received by certified or registered mail to McHenry Recreation Center, 3636 Municipal Drive, McHenry IL 60050 or by completion of a resignation form from the membership office. Payment is due at time of enrollment for the current month’s prorated fees. Membership fees may be paid in full at time of purchase, a minimum commitment of twelve months is required. Memberships paid in full will not automatically renew and will expire 1 year from date of purchase. Membership fees are subject to change after the initial twelve month commitment is fulfilled. All dues and fees are subject to change with 30 days notice. THE MEMBER CAN CANCEL MEMBERSHIP WITHIN 3 BUSINESS DAYS AFTER THE CONTRACT IS SIGNED BY THE MEMBER, and all monies paid pursuant to said contract shall be refunded to the Member. After this time period the Member may cancel membership at least 10 days prior to the end of the first twelve month period, in writing and delivered by certified or registered mail to the McHenry Recreation Center at the address above, or by completion of a resignation form from the membership office. In the absence of such written notice, this Agreement shall be extended automatically on a monthly basis. After this time period any notice of cancellation following after this Agreement shall be made in writing and delivered certified or registered mail to McHenry Recreation Center at the address above or by completion of a resignation form from the membership office. All cancellation requests must be received by the 20th of the month. Cancellations received after the 20th of the month will result in an auto-draft and will be cancelled at the end of the following month. The Member understands that he/she may not be granted credit or discount due to absence or withdrawal from membership, or by reason of failure to attend or use the facilities. Enrollment fees, memberships paid in full, punch passes, and day use fees are non-refundable. Memberships are non-transferable. The Member must be at least 12 years of age. Members ages 12-13 must register as an “Additional Family Member” to a parent/ guardian. Members who are 12-13 years of age must be under direct supervision of a parent/guardian, while exercising.

All individuals wishing to participate in a membership package may be requested to provide a valid form of identification and/or proof of residency. A senior couple pass is defined as two individuals residing at the same address – one of them age 62 or older. A membership may be cancelled for military deployment or permanent relocation of 25 miles or greater. Documentation is required. A cancellation notice must be received by the 20th of the month. Cancellations received after the 20th of the month will result in an auto-draft and will be cancelled at the end of the following month. If the Member, because of death or the onset of disability, is unable to use or receive all services contracted for, the Member, or his estate as the case may be, shall be liable for only that portion of the charges allocable to the time prior to death or the onset of permanent disability. McHenry Recreation Center shall in such event have the right to require and verify reasonable evidence of such death or permanent disability. Cancellation of this Agreement shall be made in writing and delivered certified or registered mail to McHenry Recreation Center at the address above or by completion of a resignation form from the membership office. Monthly membership fees are paid via automatic withdrawal from credit or debit cards through EFT Draft (Electronic Funds Transfer). Drafts occur on or around the first of the month. In the event of an uncollected monthly EFT due to a declined credit card, a fee of $25 will be assessed for past due membership payments not provided by the 7th of each month. Pass will be placed on suspension until payment is made. Failure to pay any outstanding balances by the next billing date will result in termination of membership and a charge of the balance owed on the membership contract/term, plus a fee of $25. City of McHenry may pursue any right it may have to recover the unpaid amount. Membership holds are available for up to 90 consecutive days, one time annually. Any membership put on hold during the initial twelve months of membership will extend the Agreement by the length of the hold period. A $15 processing fee applies to each household.
