Summer Day Camp – 2021

Now is the ideal time to make your children’s summer camp plans. The Ewing Recreation Department offers a summer day camp program for students entering kindergarten through 7th grade, plus counselor in training programs for 8th and 9th graders.

Camps run from June 28 through September 3. Registration is open at communitypass.net. Register by April 12 and save 5 percent. Programs are open to residents and non-residents of Ewing.

Daily capacity is limited to 12 campers per grade group due to Covid-19. Daily Covid protocols and cleaning procedures will be followed. There will be no field trips and no Teen Travel program due to social distancing concerns.

All camp activities will take place at the Ewing Senior & Community Center (the former JCC) at 999 Lower Ferry Road. Camp programs happen every week public schools are not in session, including that last week before school starts. With indoor and outdoor facilities on site weather is not a problem!

The camp has a full-time nurse and Red Cross-certified life guards. Counselors are trained and certified in first aid.

Camp days include swimming twice a day (lessons in the mornings and free swim in the afternoons), arts and crafts, nature, cooking, special events, entertainers, theme days, athletics, dance, and drama. Campers have the option of bringing lunch or purchasing lunch from the snack bar.

The Counselor in Training program is open to Ewing residents entering 8th and 9th grades. These junior counselors work with the younger campers and rotate age groups. CITs also have group meetings led by senior staff to discuss their experiences and grow as individuals and as a group.

Camp hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Early hours (from 7:30 a.m.) and late hours (to 6 p.m.) are available for an additional fee. To ensure a camper’s spot in camp, registration and fees are due by June 5 for weeks one through four, July 1 for weeks five through eight, and August 1 for weeks nine and ten. Registration fees include all activities.

Weekly rates are $270 for Ewing Residents, and $370 for non-residents. Counselors in Training (CIT) is $50 and is only open to Ewing residents. Additional fees for early and late hours. Multi-child discounts are available. Financial assistance is available.

Recreation Department hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday and the phone number is 609-883-1776.
