Affordable Summer Camps for New Jersey Kids
After such an unpredictable school year, kids deserve a stress-free, Zoom-free summer adventure to look forward to. Now's the time to explore summer camp options. We've rounded up 15 New Jersey day camps that are easy on the wallet but heavy on summer fun. Many camps let you register by the week or even the day, so you don't have to commit to an entire summer. Other options, like three-day weeks and half-day camp, also keep costs down. Before- and after-care is available at some camps as well.
The following are some of the most affordable summer camps in New Jersey, and as a bonus, booking soon might help you score an early bird special. Explore more New Jersey summer camps in our Camp Guide and Camp Directory. You can also learn more about local and virtual summer camps with our upcoming Online Camp Fair where you can visit virtual booths and watch live camp demos.
Editor's note: Be sure to click through to each camp listed for current COVID protocols, as the situation is ever-changing. Most camps are limiting attendance, group size, and possibly field trips to mitigate risks. Some photos in this post were taken before the pandemic.
