New Jersey Family Camps

Everyone gets to be a camper at family camp! Whether you are overnight camp veterans or newbies, family camp allows you to create new camp memories as a family. Choose your camp, your weekend, your theme, and start packing. Actually, you should register first—because most camps have limited space available. Not up for a family experience this year, but still want to give your kids a taste of overnight camp? Check out New Jersey Overnight Camps – One-Day & Overnight Experiences for First-Time Campers for more information.
