Sure it still looks like winter when you look out your window, but that snow is going to quickly melt and spring and summer will be here before you know it! What are your kids summer plans?
It’s an age old question of whether or not summer camp is a ‘worthwhile endeavor’ for children. Parents are constantly asking themselves whether or not their kids should be attending summer camp, or a summer school program.
Camp Riverbend is a summer camp located in Somerset County NJ alongside the rolling Passaic River. We believe that learning continues at camp, and summer camp makes learning fun by creating an effective learning environment. Beyond your regular academic learning, summer camp is a place where important life lessons are learned! Public speaking, responsibility, decision making are just some of the skills that Camp Riverbend campers take away from a summer session.
Summer camp also gives kids a break from electronics, and instead gives them a variety of outdoor activities to choose from. Having the Passaic River right on our facilities allows our North Jersey campers to add canoeing to their favorite activity list. We also have a nature center, athletic fields, indoor facilities, an immense arts and crafts program, and 4 swimming pools! Find out more about all our programs and activities.
A summer at Camp Riverbend allows children to discover what it is they are good at, by giving them a safe and motivating environment to try a plethora of new things. By providing a non-competitive environment, campers feel more at ease while participating in sports and arts activities they may normally be scared of!
Summer camp does an excellent job at facilitating social interaction! At Camp Riverbend we have campers from all over Northern New Jersey, including Basking Ridge, Bridgewater, Middlesex, Montclair, Cranford, Scotch Plains, South Orange, Maplewood, Summit and all throughout Somerset County!
We could go on all day, and will continue to share some of the other great benefits of summer camp with you! If you have great summer camp memories, and experiences we’d love to hear about them! Campers are encouraged to share their Camp Riverbend memories with us! Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, leave comments and pictures! We love seeing what Riverbend campers are up to in the off-season months! And of course check out our upcoming evnets, as we have a bunch of great Weekend activities scheduled from now until camp starts!
