MIT Summer Day Camp







MIT Recreational Sports is an Authorized Provider of American Red Cross Courses.  We offer Lifeguard Training, Water Safety Instructor Training, CPR for the Health Care Provider, and First Aid courses throughout the year. We also offer re-certification courses for individuals who's certifications are about to expire, for full information see Health and Safety Classes and Water Based Classes for detailed information.

All American Red Cross Classes are open to the students & staff of MIT as well as the public. Registration is on a first come first serve basis. If we do not have our minimum enrollment 4 days prior to the class start date, the class will be canceled.

Refund Policy for All American Red Cross Classes
Full Refunds will be available only to those who sign up for a course that is ultimately cancelled or who withdraws from a course eight or more days prior to the scheduled start date.

Persons who withdraw within one week of the scheduled start date will be eligible for a 50% refund.

No refund will be given to persons who fail the pre-course skills assessment (if applicable) or who withdraw from the course on the day of or at any point following the scheduled start date.

Persons who fail the pre-course skills assessment and wish to register for another course at a later date may apply their tuition to another course, subject to space availability and an additional fee (see Program Director for amount). Any such request must be approved in advanced.

All students will be given a second chance at the practical skills and/or the written exam if they fail, but if they fail a second time they will receive no refund. If Medical reasons are involved, please see Program Director.
