CLARK, NJ – It’s hard to believe, but the sixth and final week of the Clark Recreation Day Camp started today.  The Camp draws a large and loyal crowd of children every day.  Special theme weeks and daily special events and activities have provided hours of entertainment for Clark children throughout the summer.  Some activities were messy, others were silly, some were yummy and all were enjoyable.
