Lakefront Summer Camps for New Jersey Kids

New Jersey's traditional summer camps offer a well-rounded roster of fun-in-the-sun activities, like sports, crafts, swimming and more. Adding a lake into the mix opens the door to an array of aquatic activities, so we've rounded up 18 lakefront summer camps for New Jersey kids.

With day camp and summer camp options, these scenic, waterfront campuses feature activities like paddle boating, kayaking, fishing, tubing, floating on inflatables, and even chilling at a lakefront beach. So, dive into our list of lakefront summer camps.

As always, you can find even more summer camp options in our Guide to Summer Camp for New Jersey Kids. 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: Summer camp information changes daily. For the most up-to-date details on offerings and registration policies, please click through to each summer camp's website.
