Waterford Township is a township in Camden County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the township’s population was 10,649, reflecting an increase of 155 (+1.5%) from the 10,494 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 446 (-4.1%) from the 10,940 counted in the 1990 Census.

Waterford Township was originally created by Royal charter on June 1, 1695, while the area was still part of Gloucester County. The township was incorporated by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on February 21, 1798. On March 13, 1844, Waterford Township became one of the original townships in the newly created Camden County. The settlement of Long-a-Coming (today’s Berlin borough) along the White Horse Pike (US 30) in Waterford was the new county’s first seat, but lost that designation in 1848 when the seat moved to the city of Camden. Portions of the township were taken over the years to form Delaware Township (on February 28, 1844, now Cherry Hill Township), Chesilhurst (November 26, 1887), Voorhees Township (March 1, 1899) and Berlin Township (March 11, 1910). The township was named for Waterford, Ireland.

As of the 2010 United States Census, there were 10,649 people, 3,692 households, and 2,824.380 families residing in the township. The population density was 295.5 per square mile (114.1/km2).

The Mayor and Deputy Mayor are chosen by the Township Committee from among its members during the Reorganization meeting each January.
