welcome to new jersey kids guide
2015 summer camp guide
Here you will find an extensive list of camps committed to providing an unforgettable summer experience for your children and teens. From half-day to full-day traditional day camps, teen travel to sleepaway camps or the many special interest camps in the index below, there is a camp for every age and interest. These camps all invite you to visit their websites (use the convenient links in each listing), call for info, plan a visit or attend an upcoming open house.
Registration begins early in the year and continues until full. Watch for early-bird discounts offered for early enrollment. By June, space may still be available for day camps, so don't hesitate to call. Summer is also a great time to visit camps in session and start planning for next year. Kids Guide NJ 2016 Summer Camp Guide will be published in Dec. 2015.
Browse through the listings under the Enrichment Classes and Sports categories for additional summer opportunities that may not be included in Kids Guide NJ's Summer Camp Guide.
Recreation Departments often offer summer playgrounds and enrichment or sports options. In addition, some school districts hold summer enrichment sessions and school coaches frequently offer week-long sports camps.
Check the programs of local Ys and JCCs (see Ys/JCCs/Rec Facilities). They typically offer a wide selection of traditional day camps, special interest, sports and travel camps for all ages.
