MORRISTOWN, NJ — Families from Maplewood and South Orange came out to raise money for camp scholarships during the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ’s Tour de Summer Camps NJ on Sunday, September 22.
 The event featured three routes for cyclists of all skill levels; riders chose from 18, 36, and 62 mile routes. There was also a one mile family bike ride.  Proceeds make it possible for more local children to have the experience of attending Jewish summer camp. Family Fun Day included camp-style activities and a concert with singer Rick Recht. The event and ride start/finish took place at College of Saint Elizabeth in Morristown. 
The event raised $235,650 as of Monday morning after the ride. Funds raised benefit the One Happy Camper grant program and provide need-based scholarships for children attending Jewish summer camp.
Local residents on the event committee included Ariel Dybner and Marc Polson, both of Maplewood, and Aliza Sherman of South Orange.
