Summer Recreation Camp Information

Chester Township Summer Recreation Day Camp is a classic camp providing affordable summer fun for children in Chester and the surrounding community entering 1st-8th grade.

Children love our traditional camp format where they rotate through a variety of supervised activities throughout the week including games, team building, arts & crafts, sports, music, swimming, entertainment, weekly talent show, camp Olympics and field trips, all in one week of fun.

Camp hours are 9am–3pm with before and after care conveniently offered to extend the camp day fun for kids. After care offered from 3–6pm and before care offered from 8-9am.  Register and pay for any before or after care at our weekly camp sign-in with our camp directors the first day of camp. There is no pre-registration required for our before or after care program.

Chester Rec camp runs for six weeks beginning in early July and ending in mid-August. The camp is held at Black River Middle School and the Chester Area Pool. Field trips are included weekly. Registration begins in March each year. To learn more, please contact the Recreation Director at
