Specialty Camps


Due to extensive renovations at the Ocean Acres School all Stafford Recreation Summer Camp programs, with the exception of those camps offered off site, 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!


Stafford Recreation is very proud to announce an even greater expansion of our specialty themed Summer Camps in 2017.  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.


Registration for this camp will take place on the following dates:

Saturday April 29   12 Noon – 2 PM at Touch A Truck Manahawkin Lake Park

Monday May 15   3:30 PM – 6:30 PM

Ocean Acres Community Center

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