We are in this together!
Summer Updates: Plainsboro Recreation & Community Services is continually monitoring the coronavirus situation while keeping in mind that your children's safety is our first priority. At the current time we are committed to offering all of our camps this summer. If we are unable to hold our camps this summer, full refunds will be given. We will continue with hiring for summer camp staff counselors, teachers and camp assistant. All interviews will be scheduled within the next couple weeks via Zoom or phone.
Additionally, we are working on our summer session right now so that we can continue to provide excellent programming for you and your family. Since this is a developing situation, please continue to check email, Facebook and the website for updates.

Social Distancing Activities: We thought that it would be nice to give some collective ideas of things that you can do outside and in light of social distancing, right in your own backyard. Below you will find a list of great family recommendations for you to try. But the fun doesn't stop when the activity does! We want to see what you can do. Share with us pictures of your fun activity, that we can use on our Facebook page, to show that we are all in this together. You can send images via email at email@example.com
- Scavenger hunts: Come up with items found in nature to look for on a family walk, hike or bike ride. Share the list with friends and see who finds the most.
- Backyard Picnics: Pack a lunch and find a comfy blanket and spot to enjoy lunch outside.
