DOVER RECREATION SUMMER PROGRAM UPDATE

 

The Dover Recreation Summer Program registration is postponed until further notice.

 

The Dover Recreation Department, along with all other municipalities, have come up against an extraordinary set of circumstances for planning the  2020 summer programs. 

The Dover Recreation Department is meeting weekly with the New Jersey Recreation and Parks Association District 7 (NJRPA) discussing alternate plans and alternate programming ideas for the 2020 summer program under this COVID-19 conditions we find ourselves in.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC), along with the American Camp Association (ACA) has published a “draft” of guidelines regarding regulations for childcare, camps and summer programs.  When the official guidelines are published, we will take all regulations into consideration into what regulations need to be followed for summer programming.

Once direction is provided by State and Town officials, we will have further information to decide on the direction of the summer program.

Please note that we will keep you posted with any further updates regarding the summer program.

As of now, the following regulations are in place:

 

  • All Town of Dover spring activities and events are cancelled until further notice.

 

  • Town of Dover organized sports are cancelled until further notice, including practices and games.

 

  • The Town of Dover playgrounds, basketball courts, baseball field, soccer fields are closed to the public until further notice. 

 

  • No applications for rentals of parks will be accepted until further notice.

 

  • Parks are open for walking purposes ONLY with no gatherings.  All equipment in the parks are not to be used at this time.  Please keep children from playing on the equipment.

 

The Dover Recreation office is closed to the public.
