FLORHAM PARK, NJ- The Florham Park Board of Education recently presented three students from the Florham Park school system with a scholarship from the New Horizon Day Camp.
The New Horizon’s Day Camp was started back in 2012. The vision was to provide a unique and inclusive day camp experience that caters to the schedules of modern day families and the interests of each child. The main facility for New Horizons Day Camp is even at Brooklake School right in the heart of Florham Park.
The staff consists of educators, professionals and counselors that give children a staggering array of options to choose from including sports, arts and crafts, technology, performing arts, and academics. The students tailor their own schedules to their interests and activities change throughout the summer to allow the students to branch out or revisit an old favorite. Everything at New Horizons boils down to its eight core values of respect, responsibility, team work, health and fitness, perseverance, community, creativity, and self-esteem.
“New Horizons has graciously offered our students three scholarships,” said Superintendent Melissa Varley. “We had numerous people who sent in that they would like to participate, so we whittled it down to six from Brooklake and six from Briarwood. We put the names into a cup and three were chosen.”
The winners of the scholarship were Madison Black, Liam Wood and Christian Carter. Superintendent Varley presented each with a certificate honoring the scholarship and they were joined by New Horizon Day Camp founders, Seth Blender and Chris Purdue. These Scholarship recipients can now look forward to a summer packed to the brim with possibilities and new activities.
