Visit our website, http://www.mendhamdaycamp.com, as plans will continued to be updated.
*All of our activities are subject to change due to weather and other extraneous reasons.*
Every Tuesday, except the last week, our K-1 campers will take a walking field trip to Mendham Library for story and craft hour.
Color Wars takes place every Wednesday (Except week 2, which will take place Tuesday) - campers’ colors will remain the same for the entire camp season.
Third to sixth-grade campers will visit the pool at the Mendham Racquet Club each Friday, except for the last week of camp - Campers who passed the swim test last year will NOT have to retake the test this year. Please note, swim tests begin at 8:40am, so plan to arrive early to take the assessment! Pickup is at Borough Park at 12:30pm.
Please note that the Day Camp has raised the rates to keep the salaries of our excellent counselors in line with other work opportunities. We need to retain the best people to ensure the quality and safety of our camp. Our rates are still well below other Day Camps in the area that offer similar services.
2018 Weekly Themes
July 2 (NO CAMP on July 4) - July 6: Video Game Week
Campers will not want to miss this week! We will bring video games to life! Angry Birds, Mine Craft, and Mario Cart! Bring your creativity and your game face!
July 9 - July 13: Super Hero Week
It’s a bird, it’s a plane…no, it’s a camper! Campers will soar through events to challenge their super-human skills, as they attempt the Child’s Play Obstacle Course, work to find the villains hiding around camp, participate with the Mad Scientist to use super-hero skills, and save the day by participating in a search for someone in distress!
July 16 - July 20: Escape Week
You may have heard of Escape Rooms which are all the rage now. Well, Mendham Day Campers are not going to want to miss this action-packed week where we bring the challenges one faces in those rooms to camp! This week is filled with team-based games to discover clues and to solve puzzles to be the first to escape! Campers will need to try to escape the inflatable obstacle course, at some point. Thinking caps are a must, so strap them on and get down to Borough Park!
July 23 - July 27: Underwater Adventure Week
Campers will slip slide into this week with a visit from the 18-foot water slide! Using a series of clues, teams will make their way to Atlantis, where they will discover a long-lost treasure, play Atlantians vs the World, work to find Nemo and Dori, and more! Swimsuits are NOT an option this week, but a MUST!
July 30- August 3: Mendham’s Got Talent (NO POOL or LIBRARY visit this week)
This week showcases all of it and more! Make sure you get your camper registered early, as it fills quickly. We will wrap up the season with a grand finale to our Color Wars, the ultimate relay, dunk your counselor and directors, the annual counselor bake-off and the annual pizza party! On Friday, individuals and groups take to the Gazebo stage to demonstrate their talents to family, friends, and the public!
