To make a reservation to use one of the beaches, a park pavilion, or the Craft Pavilion for your next event, complete all the questions asked below and then hit ‘submit.' When you hit ‘submit.' an email will be sent to with your request.  A contract for your event will be sent to you, or an email with questions. 


Note:  You must be a Colony member in good standing to request usage of Colony property.


Fees for using Colony property include:

$25 check to serve as your deposit, refundable if you follow the contract provided at booking, a $75 user fee, $2 per guest who need a guest tag, $16 per hour for each lifeguard (more than one lifeguard may be needed, based on the number and ages of your guests).


Your $25 deposit check will be returned to you IF you physically remove the trash from Colony property and dispose of it offsite (i.e. DO NOT put your event trash in the courtesy trash & recycle bins on site. Please physically removed from Colony property entirely). 


If you cancel your event less than 72 hours prior to the event AND you do not notify the Head Lifeguard and Colony Office, your $25 deposit check will be kept.  If the event is canceled by the Head Lifeguard due to the weather or some other condition the "cancellation fee" is waived and your $25 deposit check will be returned to you.


The same fees currently hold for the Craft Pavilion, but without the need for lifeguards.


There is no fee for using Vaughan Community House; however, Vaughan cannot be rented/used for private parties.
