SUMMIT, NJ - Youth with special needs or those needing a little encouragement to participate in recreation are welcome to join programs being offered by the Summit Community Programs Department and several neighboring towns, coordinated by TryCAN.  These popular and affordable classes, open to both residents and nonresidents, allow youth to pursue an activity further or simply provide a meaningful recreation experience.  Programs are led by experienced instructors, and use trained teen Peer Mentors to help participants learn and have fun.  We have a full schedule of programs:
