In Person Recreation Camps & Programs Canceled This Summer


Montgomery Township Cancels all In-Person Summer Camps and Programs

Over the last several weeks, Montgomery officials have been considering whether our traditional in-person summer recreation camps and programs can proceed in light of the COVID-19 health emergency.  Given the concerns of parents about the safety of the programs in 2020, as well as the judgment of our own Health and public safety professionals, Montgomery Township Recreation will not be running in-person camps and programs for Summer 2020. The Recreation Department is in the process of developing alternative virtual program options for residents. Look for updates on our website and Facebook page.
