Enroll today for a fun summer!
Lots of fun for girls entering grades 5, 6 & 7.

The Montclair Neighborhood Development Program (MNDC) is holding a free, six-week summer program for Montclair Township teenagers from July 5 – August 10, and it's not too late to enroll! Called Project Oasis Summer Program, it provides a safe, positive outlet for young people who have limited alternatives during the summer. Students who are 8 - 12 years old can participate in the Junior Division on Mondays and Wednesdays while 13– 18 year olds will be in the Senior Division on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Fridays feature special projects including a chance to play in the Essex County High School League.

With Project Oasis, students receive instruction each evening and then participate in organized sports. Certified teachers work with the students in the enrichment and tutorial sessions that are matched to each participant’s needs.

New this year is the Girls Leadership Program for girls entering grades 5, 6, & 7. Each week, they’ll learn about interesting careers, find out what it takes to get there and meet amazing women in the Montclair community who are living their dreams! 

Project Oasis meets at Glenfield Park in the Wally Choice Community Center and Glenfield Middle School. To register, please call MNDC at 973 744-9094 or visit
