Vacation Camp is held at The Community Church* in Mountain Lakes and offers full day coverage for the scheduled days off found on the calendars of the schools we serve with our Kids Club Afterschool Program. While Kids Club participants have priority registration Vacation Camp is also open to non-Kids Club participants, from any school, with a delayed registration. Each day is built around a Theme and mornings are filled with Specialties such as Healthy U, CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health), S.T.E.M, Arts and Crafts, Character Counts, Sports and Games, and more. Afternoon Recreational Time provides opportunities to meet new friends. And, as the day winds down, children can choose an area of interest in Elective Time. Registration is open NOW to all Kids Club participants and as noted for all others. All vacation camps must have at least 15 participants minimum in order to run.

*December holiday vacation camp is held at The Y.
