Weekend Planner (April 18-24): READY TO CELEBRATE THE EARTH? Earth Day is this weekend!

Posted by: NJ Kids Team - April 19, 2013

Dear Friends,

 

Are you ready for the summer....are you ready for some goods?

 

That line from the movie Meatballs has been playing in my mind lately and it always puts a smile on my face, because even as a mom, when there really isn't summer vacation, I still love the summer months. And part of the reason is thinking back on my camp days and knowing my kids are having a great time swimming, climbing, playing, laughing, singing and so much more.

 

Now's the time (if you haven't done so already!) to figure out what camp or class your child will be attending. It can be a daunting process - there are endless possibilities to choose from. There are traditional day camps, such as Gesher Summer Camp, Pioneer Trails Day Camp, Camp Riverbend and South Mountain YMCA Day Camp where the days are filled with arts and crafts, cooking, sports, special theme days and more; and there are specialty camps such as horseback riding at Seaton Hackney, needlework and fashion at Handwork Studio, animals at the Turtle Back Zoo Summer Camp, and science at the i2 Camp at Liberty Science Center. For the performers, there are dance camps (Angelina Ballerina Camp at Professional Arts Academy), musical theater camps (Musical Theater Conservatory in Ridgewood) and all around 'I love to sing, dance and perform camps (Summer Performing Arts Camp at Cresskill Performing Arts).

 

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. No matter what your child loves to do or wants to explore - there's a camp out there for you! Head over to our website for information! Here's to a summer of camp fun!
