LONG VALLEY, NJ - Summer camp is over—just over, but right now is a great time to start looking at camps for next summer and locking in at low rates. One camp, Meadowbrook Country Day Camp is inviting prospective camp families to do just that on Sunday, Oct.  5, (Rain Date October 12th), from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, with rides, prizes, games, snacks, a scavenger hunt, crafts, pumpkin picking and hayrides at Meadowbrook’s Annual MEADOWFEST Fall Family Festival and Open House event. RSVP by October 1 by e-mailing Marty@MeadowbrookDayCamp.com or calling the camp office at (908) 876-3429.

“This is a great way to get an introduction to Meadowbrook and for you and your children to tour camp,” said owner Jed Buck. “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.  Enroll at Meadowfest and SAVE $100 off Fall Early Bird Tuition Rates. No pets please.”

According to former Livingston HS grad, Roz Buck, who owns the camp with her husband Jed, “Now is the best time to begin thinking about your children’s plans for next summer. If you are considering day camp options for the summer of 2015, visiting camp now, before 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.”

“Meadowbrook’s goal is to create the best possible camp environment in which children can thrive,” added Jed. “Meadowbrook is a place where children have the opportunity to try new activities, take on new challenges, increase their self-esteem and grow in a safe, nurturing, fun environment. This is accomplished through a dynamic and creative program organized by a warm and caring professional staff.”

“This was my girls’ fifth year at Meadowbrook,” said Debbie ‘Mack’ Glucksman, of Jefferson Township, who is also a 1986 LHS graduate, and one of two staff photographers at camp. “They have made amazing friends that they see outside of camp. They love mountain boarding, archery, bumper boats, chocolate [an edible art activity], cooking and arts and crafts—just to name a few of their favorite activities. They also love the staff and feel like part of the Meadowbrook family. In addition, my older daughter loves it so much that she was a counselor this summer.”

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

The camp provides door-to-door transportation on air-conditioned mini-buses to Morris County and parts of Essex, Union, Sussex, Warren, Hunterdon, Middlesex, and Somerset counties. The camp also offers extended hours from 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.

In addition, Meadowbrook offers a very wide selection of athletics, creative arts, nature, and special events as well as climbing wall and high and low ropes courses complete with a 30-foot tall zip line. Swim instruction is offered every morning and general/free swim every afternoon in a 9,000 square-foot pool complex featuring three heated pools.

Each week of the summer there is a different theme at Meadowbrook. There are exciting Special Events, Carnivals, Shows and Unique Activities associated with each weekly theme, and the themes change each and every year.

One thing that is unique to Meadowbrook is that all tips are included in tuition so there are no extra costs later. And, Meadowbrook provides lunch each day for campers.
