ROSELLE, NJ - Get your kids ready for best eight weeks of their young lives, as Roselle presents the 2018 version of its summer fun camp for borough youngsters.

Under the direction of Recreation Director Donald Shaw, borough officials have put together eight weeks of fun, from outdoor adventures, to movies, to arts and crafts, to bowling to swimming. There are also visits to a lake and to a fun-plex for kids ages 5-12 and teens from 12-15. The borough also provides programming for children with disabilities.

“We have, without a doubt, one of the best summer camp programs in Union County,” said Roselle Mayor Christine Dansereau. “It is affordable and includes a wide variety of programs. My office, as well as the Borough Council and our recreation department, are tremendously proud of it and hope all families take part in what will be an incredible summer in Roselle.”
