Summer Camp

The Oakland Recreation Summer Camp is run seasonally for the children of the Borough of Oakland. We have a proud tradition of having the best staff and weekly events to make each summer unforgettable and the future summers something that everyone looks forward to. As school is out for the summer, we begin our exciting programs for grades K-5 and grades 6-9. Our k-5 campers attend the Oakland Recreation Summer Day Camp with programs and events that are conducted at the recreation complex and Valley Middle School. Our sixth through ninth grade campers attend the Oakland Recreation Summer Open Camp. These campers travel to major theme parks, water parks, movies, etc. throughout New Jersey, New York , and Pennsylvania.

FYI: during the 2011 season Oakland Recreation Summer Camp had record breaking numbers(739) in both the Open Camp and Day Camp.
