Central New Jersey Jewish Day Camps & Overnight Camps

Two happy girls with outstretched arms

Jewish summer camp is an awesome experience that extends far beyond the eight weeks of summer. Playing Ga-Ga, color war, celebrating Shabbat with friends, and singing around the campfire are just a handful of experiences your child may have at Jewish summer camp.

But how do you pick the right one? Day camp? Sleepaway? Specialty camp? Co-ed or single gender? To help you start sorting through the options, we’ve put together a list of day and overnight camps that serve families in Middlesex & Monmouth counties.

Worried about the price tag? Most camps offer financial aid and scholarships are available for eligible campers through the Jewish Federation in the Heart of New Jersey. Click here for more information.
