“This is a great way to get an introduction to Meadowbrook and for you and your children to tour camp,” said owner Mason Goldberg. “Come see our beautiful 50-acre facility and learn about our exciting program. Meet our on-site Owners/Directors and Large Leadership Team and bring friends. All children must be chaperoned by an adult. No drop-offs or pets are allowed.”

According to Goldberg, now is the best time to begin thinking about plans for next summer.

"If you are considering day camp options for the summer of 2020, visiting camp now, before the snow hits the ground, is a great way to see the Meadowbrook fun and excitement ‘in action’ and is a great way to do your camp research,” said Goldberg.

Meadowbrook Country Day Camp is an American Camp Association (ACA)-accredited day located on 50 acres in Long Valley, just outside of Chester. Meadowbrook’s traditional day camp program services children ages 3 to 14.
