Summer is our favorite time of year at the Rec Center! Beginning June 7, your RecPlex will offer 10 weeks of a modified on-site camp program that we're calling "Rec'ing Crew: Summer Edition" to ensure your child can still experience the joy of summer camp! We know important our day camps are for families. 

March 15th begins the Early Bird participant registration on our website, register online by clicking this link, over the phone at 937-433-0130 ext. 0 or in person with our Guest Services Staff. Lock in the 2020 rate for all registered weeks. Beginning April 1st the weekly fee increases.

What to Expect

Rec'ing Crew: Summer Edition for youth ages 5-14 will operate differently from our traditional summer camp as we adhere to all State and Department of Health guidelines. Our program meets or exceeds guidelines provided by local and state agencies with the health and safety of your child being our staff's number one priority.

Participants must wear a mask during drop-off and pick-up, during the daily wellness check and when physical distancing isn't possible. We ask that participants bring their own masks. 

Groups will be reduced to a ratio of 1 staff for every 9 children. Siblings will remain in the same group together.

Each group will have dedicated staff, including substitutes, along with a dedicated homeroom and restroom. 

To ensure the health and safety of your child, participants and staff members will have a daily wellness check to screen for symptoms and fever.

Best practices discourage carpooling for children who are not in the same group. 

Drop-off and pick-up areas will be facilitated outside the buildings.

No off-site field trips will be planned, however, "on-site" special activities from local field trip venues are being planned to come to us!! We'll welcome Kona Ice Truck, Earth Joy Tree Climbing, Gametruckz Laser Ta, and COSI On Wheels just to name a few. **On-site special activities subject to change based on scheduling and availability.


Kids will have access to shared spaces such as our gyms and pool along with the climbing wall, canoe/kayaking and the Butterfly Playground in Countryside Park. These spaces will be heavily disinfected before and after each use, following a rigid cleaning schedule. 

Staff have been working so hard to create a fulfilling and memorable experience for your child. As a parent, we want to assure you that we have taken every precaution to protect the health of your child. We do the hard work behind the scenes so that when your child looks back on this summer, they only remember how much fun they had.

COVID-19 Response

The health and safety of your children is our absolute number one priority at the Washington Township RecPlex. The situation surrounding COVID-19 remains fluid and there are many unknowns about what the future will look like. Be assured that your summer camp team is diligently preparing for that future by following guidelines from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Montgomery County Public Health, and the Ohio Department of Health. We will also follow best practices from partner recreation agencies including the National Recreation & Parks Association and the Ohio Parks & Recreation Association.sunset in field

Over time, guidance for how to deal with COVID-19 may change. We will keep our camp families in the loop on all our health and safety-related efforts at camp as this is the best way to alleviate fears and to do our best in ensuring that your children have a safe and enriching camp experience this summer. Our staff will work closely with the local public health department to maintain effective protocols for the identification of any illnesses that may occur at camp, including COVID-19. New health and wellness screening policies and procedures may be required for camp and we will continue to keep you updated as that guidance comes forth from local officials.
