Classic American Summer Camp experience.

We’ve been running Summer Camps since 1951, and we aim to offer the same simple, social, transformative environment we always have. Campers enjoy spending a week at our beautiful facility living in the woods, trying new things and they depart with new friends, increased self-confidence, and memories that will last a lifetime.

Our classic one week sessions feature a whole summer of fun jam-packed into six days of non-stop fun, activities, community building and cabin life. For campers who have loved our one-week sessions and can’t get enough 4-H Camp, we now end the summer with our BIG session – 18 days of Summer Camp!

We believe every child should have the chance to go to sleepaway camp. If your family is facing financial hardship or difficulties, please call the Camp Office at 973-948-3550 to discuss the details of applying for an L.G. Cook 4-H Camp Campership.

Tech free.

A cornerstone of our Camp program is that we are a completely unplugged, tech free environment. For both campers and staff, there are no phones, tablets, computers, or screens of any kind.  This allows our campers to focus on the lost art of connecting person to person during perhaps the only week of the entire year they won’t come into contact with a screen.

Kindness and Respect.

We invite campers to discover what can happen when an entire community strives to simply be nice to each other, and treat themselves, each other, and everything they come into contact with the two golden rules of Camp.

Camp Family.

Once a camper has spent time here, they become an important and permanent member of our Camp family. We have a return rate of over 70%, meaning that many of our campers come back summer after summer all through their youth. In fact, over half of our counselor staff have been campers here themselves.  Our campers love summer camp.
