NEWTON, NJ - Families are invited an open house 2-4 p.m. Sunday to learn about the Sussex County YMCA’s Blue Mountain Day Camp, which provides children the feel of a sleep-away summer camp experience.

Blue Mountain campers gather each day around a camp fire on the shores of Fairview Lake before embarking on fun-packed days of play and learning through a range of activities including swimming, fishing, archery, sports, arts and crafts, hiking and sailing.  Horseback riding is offered during certain sessions for children in grades 4 and up.

Children as young as 3 participate in age-appropriate experiences that build their self-esteem and social skills, and increase their independence and awareness about health and wellness.
