Program fee payments can be made online via credit or debit card. NOTE: There is a separate $75 non-refundable online registration fee due at the time of registration. Cashier’s check or money order payable to DC Treasurer can be mailed to DC Parks & Recreation 1250 U St NW Washington, DC 20009 Attention: Cooperative Play Program (child’s name).
