“Meadowbrook has been an amazing experience for my whole family,” said Jaime Lauro, of Livingston, who will be the division head of the second grade girls this summer. “This coming summer will be our third summer. When we started, my twin girls were three and my son was five. I had always gone to day camp as a child and wanted the same for my children. We toured the camp the summer of 2013. At the time, I was a stay at home mom and Jed, the owner, had suggested for me to come work at Meadowbrook.”

She added, “It couldn't have been a better fit for all of us. I love working there as much as my children love being MCDC campers. My children have become fantastic swimmers, have learned teamwork, they have learned many life skills and have made amazing friendships and memories.”

“I would suggest anyone considering summer camp to come check out Meadowbrook,” said Lauro. “You will know it's the right choice for your family as well.”
