Stoughton Recreation Open Playground 

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 strict 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 each field trip is done at the beginning of each session.
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. All staff 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 playground
themselves.  Ages 6-14  There is also preschool program.

Open Playground Ages 6-14

We are excited to announce the details for the 2023 Open Playground season. We have so many great activities and games planned, theme days, crafts, sports and more!

Open Playground will run 7/5-8/11 from 8:30 AM- 2:30 PM with the option to stay until 4:00 PM for an additional $40 per child per week. You can sign up weekly or for the whole summer. DISCOUNTS ARE SHOWN AT THE END OF CHECKOUT. Please note, there are NO refunds after the first day of the program (7/5/23). Field trips are pay-as-you-go add ons and are not required- there is a normal day at the South School for those who do not attend the field trips.

CIT Program

Stoughton Recreation’s Counselor in Training program is a specialized part of our summer camp program for children 14yrs old , looking to acquire counselor skills while assisting in the work of our summer camp program. CITs will learn behavior management, team-building, communication and activity leadership by helping counselors work with younger campers. CITs will work directly with the Camp Program Supervisor as well as the full time Recreation office staff.

Pre-Playground Ages 4-5

Stoughton Recreation’s Pre-Playground program is run inside the South School, separate from the Open Playground groups. Pre-Playground is a structured program, led by counselors that focus on creativity and the power of play. Our goal is to challenge and educate all children in the most beneficial way through arts and crafts, outdoor and indoor games and special events

Pre-Playground is limited to 10 children per classroom per week. The program will take place inside two classrooms in the South School and this allows up to keep a strict ratio of 1:5 of child to counselor. We cannot accommodate more than 10, and spaces fill very quickly so please plan accordingly. This program does not include a sibling discount, and does not receive a t-shirt. Children MUST be fully potty trained (child can go to the bathroom without any help, no exceptions) to join the program. Masks are not required. The Pre-Playground classrooms are a PEANUT/TREE NUT-FREE zone. Please note there are no refunds after the first day of the program.

There is NO After Playground for Pre-Playground. All participants must be picked up by 2:30 pm. Children must be of age by the start of the program.
