CALDWELL, NJ — Families can discover all that the West Essex YMCA summer camps have to offer at an information fair on Sunday, March 6.

From Camp Peanut Shell for preschoolers and Pioneer Trails and Super Summer day camps for children in elementary and middle school, to Teen Adventure Camp and the Counselor-in-Training program, West Essex Y camps build campers’ self-esteem, confidence and social skills in a fun, safe and enriching environment. Children develop independence and wellness awareness through developmentally appropriate activities and learning experiences.

Child care before and after camp is available at no additional charge, and campers who spend two weeks or more in Pioneer Trails Camp or Super Summer Day Camp may sign up for vacation camp, which runs June 22-24 and August 22-26. Reading time and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) lessons are incorporated into all camp curriculums.
