CAMP JEFFERSON SUMMER DAY CAMP
IS A PROGRAM FOR ALL CHILDREN
Camp Jefferson Summer Day Camp returns for its 13th season of Camp in 2016! The staff continually strives to offer exciting new activities on site and stimulating off-site trip experiences to the Camp program while still providing campers with their ever-favorite games and events. This year, Camp will continue to offer its popular Fun Food Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, Hot Diggity Dog Thursdays, and the alternative of a PB&J or Yogurt/cheese lunch.
The Camp Jefferson staff does its utmost to ensure that campers are in a safe and caring environment at all times. Its colorful state-of-the-art playground, open fields, rustic buildings, lake area, and woods lend themselves to a picturesque natural environment offering activities for kids of all ages.
Camp Jefferson Summer Day Camp is licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services' Consumer, Environmental and Occupational Health Service under the Youth Camp Safety Act. In addition, the Camp facilities are thoroughly inspected each year by the Jefferson Township Health Department and the Jefferson Township Fire Bureau. The Camp's lake is treated for aquatic vegetation on a regular basis by Aquatic Analysts, Inc., and the facilities are kept under repair throughout the year by the Jefferson Township Recreation Department's park and maintenance crews. The Camp's rope courses, climbing wall with vertical playpen and zip line are inspected every year and repairs and upgrades are made when needed.
Registration is open to all children and not limited to only Jefferson Township residents. However, campers who are Jefferson Township residents are entitled to a $10 per week discount for any 5-day week.
