Before you know it, the end of the school year will appear and the panic will set in: “What the heck am I going to do with these small people I call 'my children' for the summer? We’ve got you covered with the best of New Jersey-area summer camps, some with a bonus winter camp option! These camps take fun seriously—so much so that they plan the whole year round for the 8 weeks of summer (and in some cases winter!) when their sites are transformed into oases of good times and team spirit. Many camps listed have had entire generations of families pass through, and although some camps we mention are large, they offer great counselor to camper ratios, with additional support from adults supervising younger staff. Let’s face it, soon you’re going to be breaking out the sunscreen, so plan now. Then you and your family can enjoy a welcome break from the grueling school year—you deserve it!
