Senior Day Camp   

ATTENTION PARENTS– Sparta Recreation runs a New Jersey State certified day camp at Camp Sacajawea.  This beautiful camp facility is large enough to accommodate a Pre-School, Junior (K-3rd grade), and Senior (3rd—8th Grade) Day Camp in separate, safe and appropriate areas.  Indoor facilities are available during inclement weather.
*  We must have current immunization records on file before your child can attend camp.
A “camp information packet” will be mailed with  your paid receipt, which will include additional registration forms and information.
*   Due to the large number of participants, we have developed specific procedures for dropping off and picking up your child.  These procedures will be explained in detail in the “Camper Information Packet” and must be strictly adhered to.
*   Registration is limited for all camp programs and will be filled on a first come first serve basis.  Once the maximum number is reached registrations will be closed.
*  There is a $10.00 additional fee per week for early drop off. The early drop off time is 8:00am.  No staff will be on the facility before that time.;

SENIOR DAY CAMP                         GRADES: 3rd - 8th

*NEW*  CAMP ADVENTURE  - Creating a Unique summer experience!     (Grades: 5th -8th)
Summer is upon us, and if you’re looking for an “out of the ordinary” summer camp experience then Camp Adventure is it!
Our traditional summer day camp program has been a staple in Sparta for 20+ years, and we are proud to continue to offer Sparta children a fun safe place to while away the long summer days.
However, we decided it was time to add a little “spice” to the program - the spice is “Camp Adventure”!  Camp Adventure will incorporate the best of both worlds: our traditional camp program blended with a non-traditional adventure camp.
Camp Adventure structure will be: 
  • Open to campers in 5th -8th grades for the 2014-2015 school year.
  • There is a limit of 20 campers weekly for the program
  • 2 days during the week your camper will go on a special trip designed for fun and experiential learning. (I.e. canoeing, rock climbing, zip lining, museums, etc.)
  • The other 3 days they will just enjoy the traditional camp experience!
  • Traditional Camp trips not included and are an additional fee.
  • Additional “special permission” slips may be required depending on the venue.
  • Drop off and pick up times may vary based on camp destinations.
 So make sure you check out the information and sign up now for this great new offering!!
