The 2020 Local Summer Camp Guide: REVISED! | Morris Bernards Moms


With all of the twists and turns 2020 has brought us, we wanted to make sure our kids still had the best Summer ever. We’ve edited our list of amazing local day camps with some new programs, both virtual and in person! We also want to highlight our amazing camp partners that we will wait to see next year instead. Whatever you chose to do, we know these camps will make it so much fun for our kiddos!

Our friends at Alstede Farms are looking forward to welcoming you back to camp in 2021!

Our summer camp is situated on a wooded hill adjacent to the beautiful Black River in Pottersville and runs from July 6th – August 20th. Our goal is to provide children with thoughtful multi-sensory, outdoor activities geared toward challenging their physical bodies, opening their hearts and engaging their imaginations. These include play time on our developmentally designed playground, arts and crafts projects, imaginative play experiences, storytelling and more. Healthy organic snacks are served daily. Our philosophy in “Reclaiming Childhood” is to allow children the opportunity to have experiences like those available in the age before electronics, in which they can be free to fully explore who they are and who they are becoming. For ages 2 1/2 to 6.

Use code MENDHAMMOMS for 10% off tuition for your first week. Cannot be combined with any other offers.

We want you to know that we are still planning for a fun camp this summer and we will be following the recommendations of our Governor and local health officials as decisions are made. The Randolph YMCA is working with the YMCA of the USA, American Camp Association, and the CDC to determine best practice guidelines for camp operations and expect that things will look very different this summer, particularly in health safety and social distancing practices.

Children all over the world are being asked to give up what they deserve: time with caring adult mentors outside of their home to learn new things, grow as people, and be with friends. Staying home from school, sports, and activities is a difficult sacrifice for children to make.

NEW CAMP DATES! July 6-August 21, 2020

Discounts are available! (Up to 20% off) (Please note that if camp session dates change or cannot run, your accounts will be adjusted accordingly)

We hope this gives you and your family something to look forward to this summer.

Randolph YMCA Day Camps provide a happy, healthy environment for children to learn and grow. Children have the opportunity to build self-confidence, independence, and creativity, while parents have peace of mind knowing their child is in a safe and enriching place.

This completed Camp Enrollment Packet must be submitted in its entirety including immunization records to attend camp. Without this completed step, we are not allowed to accept your child into care.

For all CAMP PROGRAM QUESTIONS, please contact Cindy [email protected] or Jen [email protected]
