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.

Stafford Recreation is pleased to announce that we will be opening up walk-in registrations for all Summer Camp programs beginning Tuesday April 23. You may register by stopping by the Pine Street Recreation Center, located at 25 Pine Street in Manahawkin on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays between the hours of 12 Noon and 4 PM ONLY. 

Walk-in registrations will close and camps will reach their limits of participants. We encourage you to register sooner rather than later if you haven’t already done so. 



  If you are ONLY registering for a specialty camp program you may mail in the registration forms along with a check payable to:

Stafford Recreation
260 E. Bay Avenue
Manahawkin, NJ 08050



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

No multiple child discounts are available on Specialty Camps.
