Programs & Services

The goal of the Hopewell Township Parks and Recreation Department is to provide a comprehensive array of recreation and leisure services for the entire Hopewell Valley community.

Now in our 17th year, we are pleased to continue our service to the residents of Hopewell Township, and our neighboring municipalities of Pennington Borough and Hopewell Borough with quality programs and events.

The Department publishes two annual seasonal brochures that are mailed to every resident. The current Spring/Summer 2017 Program Guide (PDF) details a wide variety of community trips, family trips, senior programs, youth and teen activities and summer camp opportunities. This spring and summer we invite you to join us as we travel to the DuPont Estate of Winterthur, Ellis Island, and an overnight trip to Southern Coastal Maine! Enjoy a cruise on Lake Hopatcong, take in a baseball game at Yankee Stadium or Citizens Bank Park, and see some terrific shows.

In addition to these community trips, the HTPRD also sponsors summer camps for youth and teens including Art In The Park, Skate Camp, Baseball, Multi-sport, Soccer and Field Hockey Camps. New this year is a Bricks 4 Kidz Camp that will introduce children to engineering, architecture, and scientific principles while building machines, buildings, and vehicles out of LEGO Bricks! For our teen's, don't forget to check out the ever popular Teen Travel Camp for a summer of great fun as we travel to amusement parks, beaches, themed restaurants, outdoor adventures, and more!
