Summer Camp 2021 Program

Welcome to our Summer Camp Page (Sold Out)

Thank you for visiting our Camp Fun and Fit 2021 program page.  The details of our program are listed below and included a summary of each of our 11 weeks including our field trip schedule.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Update – June 10, 2021   – Camp Fun and Fit for 2021 is full and we have stopped taking enrollments.   We have limited drop in days available for already enrolled families.  If you would like to be placed on our waiting list, please contact us with specific weeks/days, and we will add you. 

Update – April 8th, 2021 -PROGRAMMING CHANGE – Due to schedule conflicts with our Parkour Field Trip Destination, we have swapped the Picnic and Parkour Weeks (Picnic was previously the week of August 2nd, and is now the week of August 9th.   Likewise, Parkour was the week of August 9th and is now the week of August 2nd).   We have attempted to contact and work with all families already signed up to advise them of this change and adjust registrations details if necessary.)   The registration materials have been updated to reflect this change.   If you have not registered yet, please re-download the Print and Return part of the registration package to prevent confusion.  Thank you.

PLEASE NOTE:   We have made every effort to finalize the program specifics as of March 1st.   Due to COVID-19 limitations imposed by the state, DCF/OOL licensing,  and the practices of other individual businesses, we have not be able to confirm all of the field trips we expect to offer.   Changes may be necessary as we progress and/or regress throughout the coming months.   We appreciate you understanding an patience.

Summer Camp 2021 and COVID-19

We look forward to offering the most engaging and “funest” summer camp experience possible this summer.   We expect that many of the restrictions we had in place last year will be lifted and that the venues we want to use as field trips will be accepting groups.    We have planned local backup activities for all field trips in our schedule.

We will update our site and communicate with registered families as the State of NJ continues to update requirements and impose and remove restrictions on licensed facilities.     We are hopeful that there will be minimal impact on our program when we kick-off in June.    If you have any questions about how we will operate, do not hesitate to contact us.
