How to Register

There are four main ways of registering for activities: online, by mail, in person, or by phone.

Online


Registering for Parks and Recreation activities is easier than ever.  With the online registration system you can:
  • Search to find the activities and classes you are looking for.
  • Register whenever it is convenient for you.
  • Receive email confirmations of online registrations.
  • View facility calendars to check date availability of rental pavilions.
The online system will not allow you to:
  • Register individuals from other households.
  • Register individuals who do not meet activity age requirements.
  • Receive a refund.  See the refund policy.
  • Transfer to another class.  Contact the Park Office for transfers.

How to Register Online


  • To use the online registration system, you must have a valid Household ID and Password.
  • If you have recently registered for Parks and Recreation activities, your Household ID can be found on your receipt.  If you do not have a Household ID and password, you can contact the Parks and Recreation Office at 518-439-4955, option 3, to obtain them.  You can also request an Household ID and password from the "Login Here" section of the online registration system.
  • Those without a Household ID and password will be able to browse the activity and facility listings by clicking on the guest button, but you must obtain a Household ID and password to register online.
  • Registered users will be requested to change their assigned password the first time you access the online registration system.
Once you are on the site, you will be able to browse activities as a guest or login to register for selected activities.

Notice


The online registration site requires a JavaScript-enabled browser and minimum resolution of 800 x 600.  The site also uses Transport Layer Security (TLS).  If you are using a browser older than Internet Explorer 7, you must turn on TLS 1.0 on the browser or you will receive the message "Page Cannot be Displayed." To turn on TLS from your browser window, go to Tools -> Internet Options. Click the Advanced tab, scroll down to the bottom, and click on "Use TLS 1.0." Make sure "Use SSL 3.0" is also checked.

By Mail


Register by mail using the Household Information and Registration form in the activity brochure for the current season.  A lottery spin will be conducted at the beginning of each season on the date listed in the activity brochure.  All registrations received by mail will be entered into the lottery.  Following the lottery spin, all future mail in registrations for that season will be entered into desired activities on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Forms with payment, using a check payable to the Town of Bethlehem or a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover), can be mailed to:
Town of Bethlehem Parks and Recreation Department
261 Elm Avenue
Delmar, NY  12054

In Person


Household Information and Registration forms for the current season may be brought to the office and entered beginning on the date listed in the activity brochure. The lottery spin precedes this date, so popular classes may fill before in-person registration begins. 

Payment may be made by cash, check (payable to the Town of Bethlehem), or credit card (Visa, Master Card, or Discover).

By Phone


Telephone registration is permitted on the date listed in the activity brochure for the current season.  The lottery spin precedes this date, so popular classes may fill before phone-in registration begins. 

Payment may be made by credit card only (MasterCard, Visa, or Discover).

Call 518-439-4955, option 3.

Office hours are Monday - Friday,  8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
