Livingston, NJ – The West Essex YMCA, located at 321 S. Livingston Ave., has announced that registration is now open for summer day camp. This year, the facility is offering the following weekly day camps for children ages 3 to grade ten, from June 24 to August 30: Camp Peanut Shell (ages 3-5); Super Summer Day Camp (grades K-6); Pioneer Trails Day Camp (age 3 to grade 8); and Teen Adventure Camp (grades 7-10). For more information, please visit westessexymca.org or call 973-992-7500.

These YMCA camps provide campers with new experiences, the ability to develop essential social skills and create lifelong friendships, while enjoying camp adventures along the way. They also offer educational programs for children, teens and their parents and help reduce the rate of summer learning loss. Activities include special trips and guest speakers, sports skill development, character education, swimming, archery, and nature studies.

Summer camp is a great experience for children to learn something new, have fun adventures, and meet a new friend,” says Joanne Browne, Senior Program Director at the West Essex YMCA. “We are offering day camp options starting at age 3 with our Camp Peanut Shell through grade ten with our Teen Adventure Camp. Day camp gives kids new responsibilities, so they learn independence. As a result, they become more confident, are open to trying new things and they grow as individuals and as part of a group.”

The West Essex YMCA is a nonprofit committed to strengthening the community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. It works to help children and teens discover their full potentials by providing opportunities to learn, grow and connect under the guidance of caring, supportive adults. The Y also offers financial assistance to those in need to ensure that all youth have the chance to experience camp.

According to camping experts at the West Essex YMCA, there are five reasons why children and teens should experience summer camp:

1.   Adventure: Summer camp is all about fun adventures and YMCA camps offer a new adventure for every child and teen.

2.   New experiences: Day and resident camps are about learning outside of school, exploring and appreciating the outdoors, developing new skills, making friends and showing leadership.

3.   Personal growth: While being away from the routine back home, youth have a chance to develop confidence and independence by taking on new responsibilities and challenges.

4.   New friendships: Amidst the fun of camp games, songs, swimming, canoeing and talent shows, campers meet new friends. 

5.   Memories: Summer camp is an unforgettable experience that will give each camper memories that will last a lifetime.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
