Specialty Camps


We are excited to announce a new and improved line up for the Summer of 2019!


Stafford Recreation is very proud to announce an even greater expansion of our specialty themed Summer Camps in 2019.  These programs are offered in conjunction with our extensive summer day camp and trip camp.  All specialty camps are staffed by qualified specialists from these companies, professionals and community members as well as by Stafford Recreation camp counselors.  You must register in person for these programs on any of the registration dates.  Registration forms for each camp are available in the link below the descriptions of the programs. Please note there are no multiple child discounts for Specialty Camps.
