LIVINGSTON, NJ - The West Essex YMCA is offering families who register for two weeks or more of Super Summer Camp or Teen Adventure Camp by March 16 a chance to win two additional weeks of camp.

The West Essex YMCA’s Super Summer Day Camp is open to campers entering kindergarten through Grade 6 in the fall. The full-day program operates at Livingston High School. Campers build friendships, independence and self-esteem while participating in fun and educational activities such as art, archery, science, drama, sports, cooking, dance, games and swimming. Weekly trips are included with the costs of tuition. Before and after care is also available at no additional cost, with convenient, extended hours to give working families peace of mind.
Teen Adventure Day Camp is open to campers entering Grades 7 to 10 in the fall. Teen Adventure Camp fosters decision-making skills by encouraging positive values and providing challenging, fun and character-building experiences. Campers participate in activities such as team-building exercises, games, sports, crafts, community service projects and swimming twice a week. The camp is based at Livingston High School and the YMCA, but follows an extensive travel schedule with one overnight trip per session.
