Summer Camps

Give your children a summer to remember by signing them up for summer camps in your county parks. Park System camps offer beautiful park settings, low staff to camper ratio, enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff, an emphasis on safety, inclusion services and supports, and a variety of scheduling options.

The highlight of any child’s summer vacation, these camps feature everything you’d want - games, crafts and nature activities. Some Park System camps allow children to focus on a particular sport or interest such as Flag Football Camp, Snapology STEAM Camps, and Nature Kids.

Here's just some of what we have planned for our campers this summer:

  • coverDay Camps & Theme Camps    
  • Arts & Crafts Camps       
  • Nature & Science Camps  
  • Odyssey Adventures Camps  
  • Performing Arts Camps  
  • Sports Camps  
  • Therapeutic Recreation Camps  

Half-day, full-day, and overnight camps are offered. We also offer before and after care at the Fort Monmouth Recreation Center. The Fort Monmouth Recreation Center even offers a full day, full summer option.

Can’t choose? You don’t have to. Most Park System camps last a week, allowing children to register for multiple camps and experience new activities throughout the summer. Park System camps are offered throughout the county.

Summertime Fun

Here’s what some parents and campers had to say about our camps:

My daughter Julianna loved Pine Seedlings. I wish that you would run it for the entire season. She couldn't wait to get there every morning. She loved her counselors.” - T. T.

“My son Logan had the time of his life this week. Even with the brutally hot days, he still wished that he could do flag football for the rest of the summer! The main reason for such a great week was truly the incredible counselors…” - S.B.

“I had so much fun and I was glad I came to this camp! Thanks to you I will always remember this amazing experience.” – R.G.
