The South Orange Summer Playground Program is a half-day, seven week program for children who are 4 years of age (as of October 1) through 8th grade. The children are separated into groups by age/grade and meet each day in the Meadowland Park area in South Orange. The program provides the children with a variety of planned activities, including games, sports, music, art, swimming, special events and field trips. While each day is planned, there is time built in for children to just play and enjoy the lazy days of summer, creating their own fun under the supervision of camp counselors.
Registration for the Summer Playground Program is accepted in person at the Baird beginning March 1st. To register, children must be South Orange residents with current Department of Recreation & Cultural Affairs Photo ID Badges. Registration details and forms for 2018 will be posted here when available.
