CLARK, NJ - There is always something special happening at Clark Recreation Camp.   Campers have a variety of special appearances, shows, events and activities to do each week.

According to Ralph Bernardo, Recreation Director, in recent weeks the camp had a visit from Great Scott the magician and his magic 39 year old parrot.   The force was also with campers as Star Wars characters joined the kids for fun.   

Campers challenged the counselors and each other in a “Meltdown” competition, to see who had the strength and endurance to go the distance.
