Safe summer fun is just around the corner – and time is running out to make sure your child is a part of it!

Enrollment is now open for Camp Cranberry, the Township’s popular summer program. It’s set to run June 7 through August 20, with each week focused on a theme designed to challenge, entertain, and inspire.

The programs focus on developing physical, social, and decision-making skills, promoting self-confidence, and - most importantly - having plenty of fun. Camps are split into four groups: Mini Movers, Little Achievers, Youth Camp, and Future Leaders.

Weekly themes for young campers include focuses on outer space, dinosaurs, animals, science, and storybook classics. Older campers will learn about their natural surroundings, how to express themselves creatively, and inventing games and activities.

Safety is Camp Cranberry’s top priority, with counselors trained in American Red Cross CPR, AED, and First Aid as well as the use of Epi-Pens. During trips to the Township Waterpark, American Red Cross Certified Lifeguards are also staffed during pool visits to ensure safety. COVID-19 procedures are also in place.

Full-day camp runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., while half-day programs for Mini Movers and Little Achievers from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Extended care options are available. A bagged lunch is also offered for an additional fee.

Safe summer fun doesn’t stop there, as enrollment for swim lessons is also now open.

Lesson offerings include group lessons, Saturday lessons, preschool aquatics and parent and child aquatics. COVID-19 protocols based on CDC and Red Cross recommendations will be in place.

Private lessons are also available.

The lessons are an extension of the Township’s Stand Up to Drowning Campaign, which aims to educate swimmers on proper safety and limit potential hazards.
