Coming to the aid of the working parent, U.S. 1’s Lynn Miller has compiled lists of more than 130 camps, everything from the traditional day camps to those centered on arts and sports. New this year is a science camp, the Peddie Summer Science Institute, a three-week residential program for teens that offers genetics and robotics classes. Also listed are 18 other academic camps, ranging from the pricey ID Tech Camps held on the campus of Princeton University to an architecture camp at the Mercer Museum.
But if summer means sports to you, your children can enjoy a traditional “hang out at the pool” summer by joining a swim team. For very little money, their mornings are occupied with team workouts. Or choose from 27 other offerings.
The theatrically minded have more than two dozen opportunities to hone skills in drama, dance, or music, plus another dozen offerings in the visual arts.
Putting together an exciting summer can be a patchwork exercise, because some of these summer opportunities are full day and some half day; some last just one week while others extend through the summer. But now you have the information. See page 17 for the beginning of the summer fun.
