Parks & Recreation: Artworks Studio

Summer Camp

The Randolph Township Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department and Artworks Studio staff are pleased to offer several summer camp programs from pre-K aged children through teens.

Camp will be conducted Monday through Friday at the air-conditioned Artworks Studio located behind the municipal building on Millbrook Avenue. Air scrubbers are in place to improve ventilation. All camps will be taught by experienced art instructors and several assistants.

As of March 7, 2022, Artworks will be "mask optional," however, we still encourage the wearing of masks due to the small layout of the classrooms. The studio will remain using air scrubbers and hand sanitizer during classes along with opening windows on nice weather days. We do request that students stay home if they are sick, have COVID, or have been exposed to someone with COVID.

Register online beginning Tuesday, March 1, 2022 or at the community center located at 30 Calais Road. Non-resident registration opens March 15, 2022 with a $10 fee. For further information, call 973.989.7081.
