MONTCLAIR, NJ - Montclair Grassroots summer camp culminated its last day on Friday with a performance for parents in Glenfield Park. 

The performance showcased the students’ skills at dancing, gymnastics and public speaking.  Parents gathered to see their children perform spoken-word and dance routines showcasing some of the arts-inspired activities that students have practiced over the past few weeks while at camp.

For more than 45 years, Montclair Grassroots has been providing service to the Montclair community.  Run by President and Executive Director Wally Choice and his wife Celine, the camp has been a staple for many youngsters for summer activities.  Founded in 1968, Grassroots Summer Camp has been a safe haven for generations of children with many parents opting to send their children there based on their own personal experiences attending the camp during their youth.
