COVID-19 Precautions

As always, the health and safety of our campers and staff remain our top priority, and we will implement all guidelines provided by the New Jersey Department of Health. The 2022 guidelines have not been released as of yet. Once the Recreation Department is informed of the guidelines we will be sure to inform our parents/guardians. 

We will continue to monitor developments regarding any state or local directives pertaining to youth activities and camps and will communicate any related changes.


Requests for a program refund must be made in writing to the Westfield Recreation Department at least two weeks before the program by mail or email.  There will be an administrative fee applied to all approved refunds. No refunds will be issued once the program starts, and no refunds or pro-rations will be made for weather-related cancellations.
