Camp Jefferson will again offer exciting weekly five-day and three-day summer programs of fun and enrichment for local kids. The following day camp sessions take place at the township’s 94-acre facility (81 Weldon Road, Lake Hopatcong):

Preschool – ages 3 (as of June 24) and 4, completely potty trained
Elementary – entering grades kindergarten through 5
’Tween – entering grades 5 and 6
Teen – entering grades 7 and 8

Day camp is expected to begin on June 24. The program includes weekdays from 9-3, with optional before and after care services. Discounts are offered to Jefferson Township residents. In five-day camps, each sibling registered for the same program receives an additional discount.

Director Terri McCarney is setting up schedules, planning on-site activities, and arranging off-site trips. The program will include favorites from last year with some surprise additions. Registration will open in late February or early March through the Recreation Department’s online partner, Community Pass.

When the summer 2019 information is finalized, brochures and registration details will be available on the town’s website ( – click on the link for Camp Jefferson Summer Day Camp). Information will also be shared via The Jefferson Chronicle, Jefferson Township Facebook page, and Jefferson Township Moms and Dads Facebook group.
