Open Playground Ages 6-14 Register View Cart

Stoughton Recreation’s Open Playground embraces and encourages the idea of free play, in a supervised environment. The South School boasts a unique campus giving us access to basketball/street hockey courts, a large playground, field space, and a baseball diamond. Unlike most summer programs, Open Playground does not follow a strictly regimented day to day schedule. Our program offers extensive selections of activities to participate in including, but not limited to, organized and free form sports games, arts and crafts instruction, special events and on-site entertainers. We will also be offering field trips each week on a pay as you go basis. Registration for field trips is done at the beginning of each week.

Open Playground is led by a group of highly skilled and trained staff in coordination with and under the supervision of the Stoughton Recreation Department. Every staff member receives training addressing all aspects and scenarios of our summer program, and how to handle difficult situations professionally. Many of our staff are college students who went to the playground program themselves!

Open Playground is $110 per week from 8:30 am - 2:30 pm, Monday - Friday. 
After Playground is $25 per week from 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm Monday - Friday. 

After Playground is simply an extension of the Open Playground day. It will be held at the same location with the same staff as our Open Playground Program. Participants will enjoy extra sports, games, and crafts until 4 PM. 

The total cost for one child to attend Open Playground from 8:30 am - 4:00 pm Monday - Friday is $135 per week. That is ~$3.60 an hour, and hundreds of dollars less than comparable camps in the area. This price can't be beat!

Ames Pond Swim Days
Open Playground children will be given the opportunity throughout the summer to visit Ames Pond Beach along with staff. The beach will be fully staffed by the Recreation Departments lifeguarding staff. Children and playground staff will be transported via school bus to the pond here in town. All children will submit to a swim test or they will not be allowed into the water. Swim days are posted on the attached activities calendar. This activity is not mandatory!

It is up to the parents/guardians discretion if they wish to send their child to the program during heavy rain days. We will be open inside the school with low impact activities.

Transportation will not be provided for morning and afternoon pick up and drop off. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Lunches at Camp
Stoughton Recreation does NOT offer lunch services at Open or Pre-Playground programs. Participants are required to bring their own lunches, snacks, and water bottles. We recommend packing more than one snack and more than one water bottle as the children are very active throughout the whole day!

T-Shirts & Water Bottles
Each child will receive One (1) T-Shirt as part of their registration. T-Shirts are all adult sizes (Small-Large) and will be distributed on the first day of their registered session or by mail if time permits postage. This year, each child will also receive a Stoughton Recreation Water Bottle when they arrive at the playground on their first day.
