Johnsonburg is a Camp and Retreat Center in the beautiful New Jersey highlands. Located only ten minutes from the Hackettstown and Hope I-80 exits, the camp is convenient to NYC, Philadelphia, and is less than an hour from all points in Northern New Jersey.
Johnsonburg's summer camp program has been a highlight for 63 years. The program utilizes a small group model to make sure that kids can easily connect and make friends, and ensures the best possible supervision, safety, and experience. A Johnsonburg small group is two counselors with 14 or less campers, so they get to know and build strong relationships with their peers and counselors. Johnsonburg counselors are trained via a 2-week intensive training period, which ensures that they understand and can perform the best practices for summer camps and childcare. There are so many activities to do at Camp Johnsonburg that it's hard to do them all in one week. From the high ropes course to boating and swimming on our private lake, to a robust outdoor education program, to creative arts and crafts, summer campers at Johnsonburg are always engaged and leave with a ton of memories. Johnsonburg is a non-profit camp and is accredited by the American Camping Association, which annually reviews the best practices for summer camps.
