Day Camp & Trip 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! 

Day Camp for children grades K-6 runs from 10 AM - 2 PM at the Oxycocus School.  This program offers games, craft projects, art, sports, free time, a fenced in playground area, organized activities and even some special guests and Wacky Wednesday theme days. 

Trip Camp offers the ability each day for campers in grades K-6 to go on a variety of trips to places everywhere from New York City to Johnson's Farm peach picking, water parks, baseball games and everything in between.  All trips leave on a bus from the Oxycocus School with the exception of trips within town in which parents drop off and pick up at that location.

Day Camp and Trip Camp run for 7 weeks from July 5 - August 18, (closed July 3 & 4) Monday through Friday.  Day Camp is from 10 AM- 2 PM.  Trip times vary from day to day depending on activity and distance away.

Day Camp - $20 per day for 1st child, 10% off for additional children. Trips priced individually.

All programs are available to out of town residents for a 10% surcharge on total of all camps registered for.
