So you’re ready to sign up for Summer Camp!

Congratulations, we think this is a decision both you and your camper will be quite pleased with, and a whole summer adventure awaits.

Registration is entirely online, and should take approximately 15-30 minutes. You’ll create a user name and password, so you can save your progress at any point and return to the application later. You may already have a user name and password if you have registered for Summer Camp or Family Camp in a previous season.

We have a tiered registration schedule for Summer 2021. We are beginning with campers who credited their payments from last season, then to returning campers who were signed up for 2020, then on to new campers and open registration. If you have a credit or were signed up for Summer 2020, you will receive an email when registration is open to you. If not, please join our mailing list to be notified when registration is open to new campers. Please call the Camp Office (973-948-3550) with any and all questions.

Standard Camp Rate (Sessions 1-4 ) - $700

BIG Session (Session 5) - $2400

4-H/Rutgers Discount – Minus $25 ($75 for Session 5)

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.

If making a bunk-mate request, please only name one child of a similar age to your Camper.

We can only guarantee if campers mutually request each other, and logistically we cannot accommodate more.

It also works against our mission for too many friends to be in a cabin together as it can stand in the way of the opportunity to make a whole bunch of new friends.

Camp offers the opportunity for campers in different cabins to see each other plenty during meals, classes, and all-camp activities as well. Most of our campers attend Camp without a bunk mate request.

Please be sure you’ve reviewed our policies on behavior, SAD Campers, and technology as well as the emergency health procedures in our Parent Survival Guide.

Payment is required in full at the time of registration.

If your camper is attending Session 5 (the BIG session), you may enroll in a payment plan. Payment in full for one session is required. All payment plans must be completed, and balances paid in full 2 weeks before the start of your camper's first session.

Our usual refund policy will be suspended this year due to COVID-19. Full refunds will be issued if your camper is sick and unable to attend. All other refunds will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Please take time to check the dates you wish your child to attend. There is a fee to change your dates after you register. Themes and dates can be found here.
