2017 summer camp guide!
Here you will find an extensive list of camps committed to providing a fun and enriching summer experience for kids 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 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. Look for early-bird discounts offered for early enrollment.
By June, there are still plenty of summer programs to choose from. Registration is open all summer for half-day, full-day, one week or multi-week camps for all ages and interests, so don't hesitate to inquire and visit website links below for more information.
Summer is also a great time to visit camps in session and start planning for next year. The Kids Guide NJ 2018 Summer Camp Guide will be published in January, 2018.
