Each week of camp has a different theme which keeps the camp experience new throughout the summer and encourages the campers to expand their areas of interest.

Sussex Y Camps are packed with a variety of age-appropriate activities.  Each day starts with a gathering at the flag pole, followed by a structured morning filled with activities and daily swim lessons followed by an afternoon of free swim and activities.  Campers are grouped by the grade they will enter in September.  Activities follow a daily schedule, with specialty classes.

All you need to do is send your child to camp with a packed lunch, a swim suit and a towel!

Our full-day camp options also include field trips. 2020 trips will include visits to High Point State Park, the New Jersey State Fair, and the Farm Tour.
