Manalapan Recreation Summer Camp Registration POSTPONED
Due to the current concerns over the pandemic and to err on the side of caution, we have decided to postpone registration for the 2020 Summer Recreation and Travel Camp programs.
Please read the information below for updated information and the CHANGES within the IN-PERSON registration process.

We anticipate holding registration on April 4. Hopefully by then, we will have the ability to handle registration in a safe manner for all involved in the process. In the event of April 4 not being a viable option due to circumstances beyond our control, we anticipate April 25 being the next possible date for registration.

Registration on April 4 will begin at 9:00 a.m. Registration will be accepted online but NOT IN PERSON. For those who wish to pay with a check, registrations will be accepted by mail. Each day, we will receive our mail and NUMBER THE REGISTRATIONS IN ORDER OF RECEIPT to have them ready for April 4. WE WILL NOT ACCEPT CASH.

Please realize, the registration system will be set up as we have each year - holding a small percentage of spots per group for those who do not register online. This percentage WILL NOT CHANGE. Your best chance of getting your child into a certain group color remains with online registration at 9am on April 4.

We do ask that you DO NOT come in person to drop off your registration. The idea behind the mail in process allows several hours for any possible germs to die before our staff handles your paperwork. It is in the best interest of all involved that the mail system be used. Our office WILL NOT be open during the morning of April 4 to receive registrations. Only those received in advance will be processed that morning.

The following steps will be used during the registration process on April 4:

The Online registration option will open in order to pay with a credit card
At 9:00 a.m., recreation staff will begin to input the mail-in registrations, in the order in which they were received.

You are welcome to send in your registrations whenever you wish. Again, they will be numbered upon receipt and held until registration morning. No registration will be entered prior to 9am on registration morning.

We will have staff from 9-11am available to answer questions by phone.
Please be sure to check your email and Facebook for updates as we get closer to April 4.
If you are not already registered for the Township emails (not specifically from Recreation), please take a moment to do so. These emails provide information from the various departments and committees throughout the Township - including Recreation. You can register on the front page of the Township website (toward the right side). WWW.MTNJ.ORG

Thank you for working with us as we adjust with the ever-changing requirements being set forth due to the Coronavirus. Hoping you all stay healthy during this scary time.
