Fee Waivers Available

It is the policy of the Brownstown Recreation Commission that no Brownstown resident child will be turned away from a program due to the inability to pay a program registration fee.

If your child wishes to participate in any program, and you are unable to pay the registration fee, please request a fee waiver application from Parks & Recreation Director Mark W. Maxe at (734) 675-0920. All requests are handled confidentially.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

If, for any reason, you are not fully satisfied with any program, a full refund of the program registration fee will be issued upon request.
