RAP  
In 1986, the Monmouth County Park System began the Recreation Assistance Program (RAP) to provide a variety of recreational activities for underprivileged youth in our urban communities. In recognition of this program’s importance, the Friends of the Parks, a 501(c)(3) organization, has developed an annual RAP Appeal to assist the Park System in making quality recreation available to disadvantaged youth here in our county. The Friends provide scholarships for children from Monmouth County’s urban communities to participate in week-long summer camps (including door-to-door transportation), summer concerts, boat rides, farm tours, and educational programs.
