Tour Jefferson Township’s 96-acre facility at Camp Jefferson on Sunday, March 29 or Sunday, April 12 and learn firsthand what it has to offer your child this summer during the Recreation Department’s 12th 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.
