Jefferson Rec offers its New 2019 Recreation Directory

The Jefferson Township Recreation Department has just published an updated Recreation Directory containing all recreation-related information available for children, adults, and senior citizens in Jefferson Township, NJ.  It contains contact information, websites, and email addresses where available on all Jefferson Township recreational sports leagues, special Jefferson Township Recreation Department-sponsored sports programs and events, Jefferson Township playgrounds and sports facilities, Jefferson Township Senior Citizen services, Jefferson Township Senior Citizen organizations, the Jefferson Township Recreation Advisory Board, and Jefferson Township annual community events.  The information in this directory will be kept as up to date as possible during the course of the year.

This directory was developed as a guide to make residents aware of recreation programs and facilities available within the township for all age groups.  The information provided is general in nature, and the Recreation Department or independent sports associations would have to be contacted directly for registration information, dates, times, and locations of the specific programs using the contact information provided.

In this age of technology, registration for programs is usually done online through the sports leagues’ website; and the Jefferson Township Recreation Department’s program registrations are all done through its Community Pass module at            

You can view the new Recreation Directory on the township website through the Forms Center link on the left side of the homepage at or more specifically  Printed copies will be available in the display racks of the Municipal Building, the Public Library, and the Recreation Department office at Camp Jefferson. 

You can always check on what the Recreation Department is offering on the Jefferson Township website at by clicking on the Departments tab and then scrolling to Recreation for additional information.  Information concerning the Camp Jefferson Summer Day Camp program can also be found here.

Events are also posted to the township’s calendar at - click on the Events Calendar, find Recreation Department registration forms by clicking on the Forms Center link and scroll down to the Recreation Department, and always be sure to check on the Jefferson Township Facebook page for program announcements.

As Jefferson Township does not have a local newspaper publication, also visit and as all press releases are sent to both online news vehicles.  In February, look for The Jefferson Chronicle Digest, a new monthly print edition of the online Jefferson Chronicle that will be available in many township locations.  While press releases are sent to other area print publications, they are not always published as space may not permit.  With permission from the Board of Education, program/event announcement flyers are sent through the school system for Recreation Department programs/events and distributed to all the elementary school classrooms with flyers available for middle and high school students in their main office and cafeteria.  The BOE also posts Recreation Department flyers on in the Virtual Backpack section.

Questions or comments are welcome by calling the Jefferson Township Recreation Department at 973-663-8404 extension 2 for Recreation Director Grace Rhinesmith or extension 4 for Recreation Program Coordinator Carol Punturieri.
