FANWOOD, NJ -- What's the best remedy for a cold, wet and dreary day? An ice cream party at Rocko's Ice Cream (38 S. Martine Ave., Fanwood). 

Scores of campers from the JCC's Camp Yachad gathered for a "Camp 365" event, which keeps campers connected year round.

"At Camp Yachad we have lots of free events for our campers and their families all year long to keep our Camp family connected beyond the great summer weeks," said Sandra Kenoff, Director of Marketing and Special Events at the JCC of Central NJ. "To name a few: This year our campers went to a Devils game for free, had a free family roller skating day and there are more events coming up which you can see on our Camp website at (click on year round fun)."
