Meadowbrook Country Day Camp Hosting Prospective Family Open House, By Appt.

Meadowbrook Country Day Camp is inviting all prospective camp families to attend an Open House event, by appointment, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 25 at the camp, which is located at 73 East Valley Brook Road in Long Valley. Please call 908-876-3429 or email to register for a private tour of the camp.

All prospective families will enjoy an informative walking tour of the campus with Meadowbrook’s camp directors and leadership team. They will also learn all about how well the summer of 2020 went and all the safety and health precautions taken.

“This is a great way to see Meadowbrook’s beautiful campus and for your children to tour camp,” said Mason Goldberg, who owns the camp, which becomes a well-known pre-school during the winter months.

Meadowbrook is an American Camping Association (ACA)-accredited day camp located on a 53-acre wooded campus just outside of Chester. The program serves children ages 3 to 15, with a travel program for those entering grades 7, 8, and 9. Meadowbrook also offers before-care and after-care hours from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The camp provides a unique focus on building life skills; a Red Cross swim program in heated pools; kid-friendly, healthy lunches served every day; boating; mountain biking; sports, ropes courses; and special, themed events weekly both at camp and on the buses.

In addition, Meadowbrook provides door-to-door transportation, on air-conditioned mini-buses, serving Morris, Essex, Union, Sussex, Warren, Hunterdon, Middlesex, and Somerset counties.

One unique aspect of Meadowbrook is that all tips are included in tuition, and there are no extra costs later on.

Activities include swim instruction based on the Red Cross Skill Levels, free swim in a 9,000-square-foot pool complex with three heated pools, archery, tennis, basketball, softball, soccer, cooking, dance, lacrosse, flag football, nature, fishing, Newcomb, Challenge Courses, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boats and bumper boats on a private lake, gymnastics, various arts and crafts, hockey and more.

There are also some unusual activities offered, such as mountain bikes, mountain boards, Ultimate Frisbee, Tapu-aie, GaGa, Handball, Speedball, chocolate, arcade, bonfire cooking, Earth Wind & Fire, rocketry, and more.

Meadowbrook offers travel camps as well for children entering grades 7 to 9.

Here is a link to this summer’s Color War fun.

According to the owners, Meadowbrook instills campers and staff with a culture of “TIGER” core values, including Teamwork, Integrity, Generosity, Enthusiasm, and Respect.

“We encourage our campers and staff to practice TIGER values during the summer and to take these values with them, after camp has ended, back home and back to school,” said Goldberg, whose young children are campers at Meadowbrook.

There are a limited number of spots available for 2021, so don’t miss out on taking a tour of camp. To attend Sunday's open house, contact the camp at 908-876-3429​ or
