Our Mission

The Manchester Township Department of Recreation is dedicated to fulfilling the recreational needs of the Township’s residents both young and old. The Township’s emphasis on recreation is evident in the numerous programs, activities and events offered by the Department of Recreation. These activities will continue to grow and expand to meet the ever changing needs and interests of our citizens.

The Department’s goal is to continue to expand our programs and enable more citizens to participate and enjoy the same.

Programs and Events

Program brochures are printed twice a year, Spring/Summer (May) & Fall/Winter (September).
(Due to a limited amount of space in some programs, non-residents will be accepted on an availability basis.)

Please adhere to the following registration dates:

  •    Residents Only – Mail-ins accepted immediately
  •    Resident Walk-In Dates: TBD
  •    Non-Residents Walk-In Dates: TBD

Camp registrations must be received no later than June 15th to avoid being charged a $20 late fee.

A 15% late fee will be added to the program fee if not paid at least 3 business days prior to the program start date.


As each month passes during this pandemic, we spend each day waiting to hear if and when the restrictions will be lifted for large gatherings. If and when the restrictions are lifted, there doesn’t seem to be a viable way we can guarantee everyone’s safety and maintain social distancing among our campers. As a result, the Mayor and Township Administration have made the difficult decision for the safety of our campers and staff to cancel our summer camps for the 2020 summer season. We hope to see you next season.

In addition, our spring wrestling program has been canceled.
Lastly, we had to cancel our Summer Musical Theatre program and the Production of “Moana Jr.” for 2020. Our plan is to reschedule for 2021.

We will keep you posted on any additional cancellations.

Thank you for understanding.

Be safe and well,

Manchester Recreation

2020 Spring/Summer
