With over 400 programs and special events listed in our Summer Program Directory, it may be hard to choose what to enjoy. Be sure to check out some of our brand new programs like Jump Start Your Day, Evening Kayak Paddle, Aqua Boot Camp, Dinosaurs of New Jersey, Family Adventure DayTeen Fantasy Football, Peach Festival & Sidewalk Sale and so much more! Be sure to get a spot in your favorite programs. Registration begins at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, May 6.
