The camp provides a unique focus on building life skills; a Red Cross swim program in heated pools; kid-friendly, healthy lunches served every day; boating; mountain biking; sports, ropes courses; and exciting and creative themed weekly special events at camp and on buses.

In addition, Meadowbrook provides door-to-door transportation, on air-conditioned mini-buses, serving Morris, Essex, Union, Sussex, Warren, Hunterdon, Middlesex and Somerset counties.

One thing that is unique to Meadowbrook is that all tips are included in tuition and there are no extra costs later on.

Also, Meadowbrook instills campers and staff with a culture of “TIGER” core values (Teamwork, Integrity, Generosity, Enthusiasm and Respect).

“We encourage our campers and staff to practice TIGER values during the summer and to take these values with them, after camp has ended, back home and back to school,” said Goldberg, whose young children are campers at Meadowbrook.
