A message from the rec department

The Parks & Recreation Department is dedicated to providing affordable and accessible programming in Moorestown, with youth programming by far the largest segment. And programming for individuals with special needs fills a much-needed gap in activities for children and young adults.

While every effort is made to keep costs low, registration fees can’t be afforded by everyone, which is why financial assistance is available. Scholarships and subsidies are available by filling out a simple application. Program costs can range from $50 to over $200 depending on the length and complexity of the program.

The upcoming youth basketball league runs from January through March and costs $130 for residents. There are subsidies and grants for anyone with financial hardships, not just children, which means anything from an active-adult program to joining a soccer team to learn life skills.

The rec department’s programs are often the launching point for children who find a passion for sports or other hobbies that lasts a lifetime. Residents are asked to consider donating to help a child learn to code scratch animation in the Robotics/STEM classes or play on a sports team.

Rec programs have a variety of funding sources, some fee-driven and self-sustaining. Others are collaborative, shared-cost programs with local organizations and some are completely underwritten by private individuals. They all help keep the community active and engaged.

Contact Cyndi Roberts at cbritton@moorestown.nj.us with any questions regarding financial assistance or donations.
