Stop in at the Camp Jefferson Summer Day Camp’s Open Houses
Tour Jefferson Township’s 96-acre facility at Camp Jefferson on Sunday, March 9 or Sunday, March 23 and learn firsthand what it has to offer your child this summer during the Recreation Department’s 11th annual summer day camp program. The facility is located at 81 Weldon Road in Lake Hopatcong, NJ, easily accessible via Routes 80, 15, or 23. The first 50 families at each open house will receive a complimentary tote bag.
Children accompanied by their parents/guardians are encouraged to drop in anytime between 1 and 4 PM on either day to tour Camp Jefferson and view the Camp’s exciting video and slide presentation. Camp Jefferson’s summer camp directors and several staff members will be on hand to answer your questions with summer day camp brochures and registration forms available for you to take home.
The camp program is open to residents and non-residents. Great news – no increase in tuition for this summer’s program which will run from June 23 through August 22 for a total of nine weeks in a safe and natural environment.
