Any registration submitted prior to 12:01am on April 3rd will not be accepted. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the Field Trippers Clinic and the maximum limit being 45 kids each per week, parents may enroll their child in only one (1) Field Trip Clinic during the April on-line registration period starting April 3rd. Our intention is to involve as many different children as possible in this fun and exciting travel experience. Once the April registration period is completed, parents are welcome to enroll their child in additional Field Trip Clinics based on availability beginning May 7th either at the Recreation Office or on-line at www.braintreerec.com.
