Trips/Events:
Trips and events can be paid online, with credit or debit card, up until 12:00 midnight, Monday the week before each trip. See registration deadlines below. Due to trip facility current guidelines and safety policies these are firm registration deadlines. Payments can also be made with cash for check at the Recreation Office following the same registration deadlines below. Once you pay for the trip you are registered. If you do not pre-register for trips by the deadline, you may put your child on the waiting list online.

Participants may only go on trips that take place during the sessions they are registered for in the summer program.

Request For Summer Aides:
If you feel your child is in need of an aide to assist/shadow them at the summer programs, you must make a request through the Recreation Department. Request should be submitted no later than June 6th. At the time of request you must submit a copy of your child’s I.E.P. Report (if you also have a 504 Plan please submit with your I.E.P.). Assignments will be made based on a review of your child’s documents and results of an interview. This will help determine the best strategy to assist your child in having a memorable and safe summer. After June 6th we will contact you to set up an interview. Once the summer program begins, aides cannot be hired.

Scholarship Program:
The Clifton Recreation Department Summer Scholarship Program (CRDSSP) was established to assist the Clifton youth residents, who without financial assistance, would not be able to attend summer programs and to assure that no child is turned away. Our department believes that youth need a summer program experience to enrich their lives. The funds used for the summer program scholarship program are raised through our annual specialty camp program. A small portion of that registration fee goes toward helping those less fortunate and is advertised on all registration information for those programs. Funds are also donated by individual and/or companies /organizations specifically to send youth to the summer program.

CRDSSP – is only available to Clifton Residents and cannot be used for extended family whose primary residence is elsewhere. The children, for which the scholarship is requested, must be claimed as dependents. The scholarships are only for the department sponsored summer programs (Summer Days in the Park and Lots-O-Fun) and not eligible for specialty camps, summer classes, special events, trips or T-shirts. Requests are approved by the Board of Recreation Scholarship Committee. Requests must be made by May 31, 2022. Scholarships are for one session and one year only and for a portion of the program costs. Once approved the balance must be paid to secure a place in the program.

Parents interested in applying for financial assistance for their child's summer program must email the Clifton Recreation Department at doliver@cliftonnj.org to request an application.
