Pre-School Summer Camp

We're moving!

Due to extensive renovations at the Ocean Acres School all Stafford Recreation Summer Camp programs will take place at the Oxycocus School located at 250 N. Main Street Manahawkin, NJ.  We look forward to this new and exciting change and assure all parents that the safe, quality and fun summer camp experiences you and your children have come to know will continue in our new location in 2017!



Pre-School Summer Camp

This program will be staffed and directed by New Jersey State Certified Elementary school teachers. Teachers will also be assisted by our summer camp staff.  

The program will be a drop off program for pre-school children ages 3-4 who must be potty trained.  It will run from Monday to Thursday from 9:30 AM until 12 Noon with a limit of 20 children per day.

This camp will be held for 6 weeks beginning July 5 through August 10.  As with our summer camp program for older children, parents can choose as few as one day a week or up to four days a week for their children to attend. 

There will be a cost of $15.00 per child per day.

Out of town residents may register for any of our camp programs for an additional fee of 10% on top of the total.  

These new and exciting programs will center on the curriculum of weekly themes.  Pre-schoolers will get to explore a variety of fun and educational areas of study.  Camp days will be filled with many varieties of activities and components such as reading, music, dance, arts and crafts, kids in the kitchen and of course, free play.
