SESSC Trip Policy

  • All participants must be ambulatory (i.e., mobile) to go on an SESSC trip, and must be able to take care of their personal needs.
  • Payment for trips is due upon registration, whether done in person at the Front Desk or via phone. For your convenience, MasterCard and VISA credit cards may be used to pay for activities over the phone.
  • A minimum of five paid registrants is required for every trip. Without exception, scheduled trips with fewer than five registrants will be cancelled.
  • If you must cancel a trip, a check will be issued for trip cancellations if made at least three days prior to the trip. Missed paid trips will be considered a donation to the Center.
  • Drivers will not wait for late comers. You must be at the designated location for pick up before the scheduled departure time.
  • Failure to do so may result in being left behind, and you will not be permitted to go on the next three SESSC Casino Trips.

Trip Cancellation Policy

SESSC Classes may be cancelled if minimum attendance is not reached one week in advance of activity. Please sign up and pay for activities one week in advance.  All classes, programs, and activities are subject to change.
