Registration for summer day camps now being accepted

Registration for the Lower Southampton Township Summer Day Camps is now being accepted, it was recently announced by Parks and Recreation Director Matt Gilbert.

Matt says that he is gearing up for an exciting, enriching and energetic nine-week experience for area youngsters from June 16th through August 14th. “This year’s summer day camp will feature a full share of recreational and fun activities, crafts, instructional enrichment and entertaining cultural excursions,” he relates. “Our programs have been meticulously designed to allow every child the opportunity to grow and mature through a series of professionally supervised programs and activities embracing physical development, socialization, teamwork and camaraderie.”

An additional two weeks of camp will be made available through August 28th for families who are interested.

Camp will be divided into a series of age-segmented groups starting with the Pioneer Camp for children ages three- to five-years, which will be located at Russell Elliott Memorial Park on Buck Road.

Discovery Camp for ages five- to 12-years and seven- to 12-years will run simultaneously at two locations, the Dolphin Swim Club, 260 West Bristol Road, and Joseph E. Ferderbar Elementary School, 300 Heights Lane.

Teen Camp for ages 13-years plus also will be located at the Dolphin Swim Club.

In addition, there will be a Counselor-In-Training Program for teens 13-years and beyond which also will be housed at the Dolphin Swim Club and Ferderbar Elementary School.

“We’ll have a terrific and genuinely enriching program for youngsters of all ages, however, I encourage all parents to register early to assure that their child will have a place in our program,” Matt notes.

Special Summer Day Camp resident rates will be offered to all people residing in Lower Southampton. Your residence will need to be verified.

The cost for a youngster residing in the township is $888 for the season with a $222 first installment required. The non-resident rate is $1,164 per child with a $291 first installment required.

The regular deadline for summer camp registration is May 29th. Late registrants will be charged an additional $100 per child up until June 5th.

Payment in full is due by that date for all campers. No registrations will be accepted after that.

A digital online family registration system is now being used for the 2020 camping season.
