Scarlet KIDS Program

camp v1This school year has been like no other  CAMP IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER!

Consider how suddenly our children were separated from their extended family & friends and forced to stay home and participate in remote-learning. Important extra-curricular activities like sports, music, and dance classes were suddenly stopped, and most children struggled to have their social, physical, and emotional needs met in the absence of their typical daily activities. This summer, it’s more important than ever for children to reconnect with their peers, in-person and outside!

Camp will look a little different this summer. Our Scarlet KIDS Camp staff’s priority this summer is to provide dynamic programming in a safe and FUN manner. Our COVID-19 Operations Plan prioritizes the health and well-being of our campers, families, and staff through the implementation of targeted health and safety protocols and has been created in accordance with NJ Department of Health guidelines, CDC guidelines, and Rutgers University’s Returning to Rutgers Guide. Our procedures may be modified and revised as guidance from these entities may change. All campers and staff will undergo morning Health Checks upon arrival to camp. All camp staff will complete weekly COVID-testing. Staff and campers will wear masks when indoors; staff must wear masks when outdoors if another group is nearby. Depending upon camp regulations, we may or may not be able to have field trips this summer. 

The Scarlet KIDS Summer Camp Program is a co-ed recreational summer program for school-aged children based on the grades they are entering in the upcoming fall. Children going into first through sixth grades may enroll in our summer camp program.
