Summer Camp Open Houses Begin in New Jersey

One sure sign that winter is on its way out is when summer camps start hosting open houses. We've put together a list of more than a dozen upcoming events from our sponsors, including options for day and commuter camps, and even a weekday sleepaway camp. 

This is just the beginning. Whether you're looking for a STEM camp, preschool camp, art camp, or beyond, you can find many more New Jersey summer camps in our camp guide and full directory of listings

Happy hunting!
