    What is Camp College?

    Camp College and its affiliated programs offer your child an enriching alternative to the traditional summer day camp. Campers combine study in a variety of stimulating subject areas that emphasize intellectual growth and skills development with the fun of recreational activities at the West Windsor Campus. Children choose up to six different "courses" in our four-week 'Campus Kids' sessions (I and II). Most courses meet 55 minutes daily for each session. Camp College's affiliated Specialty Camps and Friday Fun Days are half days or full days.
