Touted as the “year-round recreational capital of New Jersey,” the community of just more than 20,000 residents lives up to its motto. Camp Jefferson Summer Day Camp is one of the community’s strongest programs. The nine week, affordable, summer camp program offers youth the chance to enjoy a huge array of activities, including miniature golf, archery, fishing, zip-line fun, character development, science and nature activities, leatherworks, water slides and more.

Jefferson also operates a rich program for special needs children that includes the Challenger Soccer Program. Just 50 miles west of Manhattan and two hours north of Philadelphia, entrepreneurs and business owners will appreciate Jefferson’s strategic locale.
