Philosophy & Objective
For over 60 years, the Township of East Brunswick has been providing children with a positive, stimulating and happy summer day camp experience where they create wonderful memories and lasting friendships. We are focused on making summer a fun-filled experience for your child to cherish for a lifetime!
Variety of Experiences
The Department of Recreation Summer Day Camp is a co-ed camp serving children in grades Kindergarten through 10. The camp provides a variety of experiences that support social and physical growth in a positive environment in which children have the opportunity to explore, play, learn from adult role models, develop self confidence, use their imagination, and develop new friendships.
Activities Stimulate Growth
The program stimulates exploration and adventure through individual and group activities while developing insight into cooperation and decision making. Amazing trips, sports, arts and crafts, swimming, games and creative activities promote an exhilarating summer for each camper.
Nurturing Your Child
Our camp is where a camper’s personal, emotional, and physical needs are nurtured by staff that has a great love of children. This camp will give you the peace of mind that your child is in a caring environment this summer.
American Camp Association (ACA) Accreditation
The East Brunswick Day Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA) which recognizes camps for providing quality programming with the health and safety of campers and staff in the forefront. Standards established by ACA provide guidelines for policies, procedures, and practices, as well as education and evaluation to ensure the ongoing challenging and nurturing aspects of the program.
The Department of Recreation and Community Services undergoes a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of its operation - from staff qualifications and training to emergency management.
East Brunswick Day Camp is one of the few ACA accredited municipal camps in the country and the only one in our region.
American Camp Association collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at the camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes summers of growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.
