PROOF OF IDENTITY, RESIDENCY, & AGE GUIDELINES

Department fees are based on residency, with Kent County resident fees and non-resident fees as listed on printed information, on our website and online through ActiveNet (our online registration program). Non-residents will be required to pay a non-resident fee.

KCPR reserves the right to require proof of identity-name, residency-address and age for patrons whether a resident or non-resident. Patrons who do not provide proof documentation will be denied participation. Patrons who indicate they are Kent County resident and do not provide proof of residency-address (if requested) will be required to pay the non-resident rate.

Shared Kent County and Queen Anne's County Zip Code: KCPR will confirm the street name of all addresses with a 21620 (Chestertown) or 21651 (Millington) zip code to confirm the appropriate rate is applied. Patrons with a Chestertown or Millington address/zip code who reside in Queen Anne's County will be required to pay the non-resident fee. If registration is completed and processsed at the resident rate and it is later determined that the non-resident rate should apply, additional charges (the difference between the resident rate and non-resident rate) shall be immediately due upon discovery of the discrepency. Failure to pay any additional charges by the advised deadline will result in cancellation of the registration and a refund (minus a $5 processing fee) will be issued. The non-resident rate will not be adjusted if a non-resident becomes a resident after payment is completed.
