This is a camp for boys and girls ages 9-15. We start at age 10, but will accept a few 9 year olds who have summer or fall birthdays. Our campers stop attending after freshman year in high school. Kids aged 9-11 may join as Surf and Turf Juniors!
Counsellors arrive at 8:00 AM every morning and we start to enter the bus at 8:45. Edgemont School in the same named park is our starting point every day. We head out on a different adventure, from New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania to as far as Canada and California! We are a day camp as well as overnight.
We hike, bike, swim, tour, and boat everywhere at an adventurous speed. We are guided by the best teachers found in Montclair! They are experienced and have already guided thousands of kids this age. Many have won awards as creative teachers. We have certified lifeguards, EMT's, and First Aid Trained leaders.

This is the third installment of our FOODIES Week. We started this a few years back. We taught cooking, explored ethnic neighborhoods, and had a competition in the past. This year, we will add new neighborhoods which are known for food and an Iron Chef-like competition using Montclair Chefs as guides as we form teams to help and cheer them on!
