Recreation Summer Camp

Summer 2021 Registration Opens 7:30 AM on Monday, January 4, 2021 for In Person Registration at 100 Morris Ave.
Online and Phone Registrations will open at 8:30 AM.



Please note that due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are planning to be able to hold the summer camp should the Sate of New Jersey allow for the opening of such camps. We are dedicated to implementing any recommended policies to ensure public health.


2020 Summer Camp runs
Monday, June 21 - Friday, August 13


Registration for the 2021 Summer Camp held at the Summit Community Center and Summit Family Aquatic Center.

CAMP SCHEDULE AND HOURS: Camp will run daily from Monday, June 21 through Friday, August 13. Camp hours are 8:00 AM until 3:30 PM (Monday-Thursday) and 8:00 AM until 12:30 PM on Fridays. Se below for information on our new wrap around program.

CAMP COST: Camp cost is $450 for all eight weeks. In 2018, camp ran for six weeks and in 2019, camp ran for seven weeks. We strive to provide exceptional recreational programs for children all summer long, which is why we have added additional weeks (which also leads to increased cost).

This eight-week camp includes arts & crafts, special events & outings, sports & games. Campers can also look forward to both yoga and other classes, as well. Many special appearances are made by a variety of entertainers, including magicians, weathermen, and more! There is so much to offer.

Drop off and pick up are both at the Summit Community Center, 100 Morris Ave. Children will leave the Summit Community Center at 11:00 AM to walk to the Summit Family Aquatic Center. Lunch will be held at the Summit Family Aquatic Center from 11:30-12:00. Swimming at pool activities from 12:00-1:30. We will then return to the Summit Community Center to finish the day at 3:30 PM.

Be aware when registering that there are three separate programs. There is the program for children entering first grade, the program for children entering second through sixth grade and the counselor in training program for children entering seventh through night grade.

 

NEW for 2021: CAMP WRAP AROUND PROGRAM

 

Do you need childcare after 3:30? This year, we will be adding a wrap around program where children will be welcome to stay at the Community Center for a more relaxed, free structured “afterschool” type program. This program will run Monday through Thursday from 3:30 until 5:30 PM. You may add this program by the week for $25 per week.

 

RETURNING FOR 2021 – TRY CAN INCLUSION CAMP

 

This component of our program is open to ALL municipalities in the TryCAN Collaboration for children who require accommodations for their successful participation in camp. 

Your child will be placed into a group with a 1:3 ratio that will be a subsection of grade appropriate groups of our general summer camp program. This model allows for your child to have a little extra attention and receive supports they require, while also getting the full camp experience! All camp counselors will be students in Seton Hall's Elementary/Special Education Program. Please be sure to select the Inclusion Camp option when registering. If you have any specific questions about the inclusion program, please contact dguidajr@cityofsummit.org.
