3 Spring Break Camps to Try

Trying to figure out where to send the kids over break? Check out these great picks.


Published:

Zoo Camp 

Her favorite day trip will be her favorite day camp, too! Learn about animals coming out of hibernation now—like twin sister black bears, Jelly and Jam—take trips to the reservoir to see the new spring animals up close and learn all about the butterflies in the pollinator pathway. Turtle Back Zoo, West Orange. Mar. 30–Apr. 2, Apr. 7–10. 9 am–3 pm. Grades K–5. $325/child. 973-731-5800, turtlebackzoo.com 

Parkour Camp

Adventurous kids will love expending their energy in this unique parkour workshop (yes, like the American Ninja Warrior show). Campers navigate the obstacles in the environment around them while learning to safely engage whether they’re running, climbing, swinging, jumping or rolling. Ratios are small (no more than five campers per staffer), which means everyone gets a lot of individualized attention. West Windsor Arts Center, Princeton Junction. Apr. 6. 9 am–3 pm. Ages 8–12. Before/aftercare: $10/hour. $90/child. 609-716-1931, westwindsorartscenter.org

Extreme Sports Camp

This camp offers sports like basketball and soccer, with an emphasis on technique and improving tactical skills, but kids here can also try the camp’s eXtreme sports, like running inside a giant hamster ball, bubble soccer (played wearing a big plastic suit for sumo-style play), Nerf darts and archery tag (dodgeball with bows and foam arrows). Coastal Sports, Fairfield. Apr. 6–10. 9 am–4 pm. Ages 5–14. Before/aftercare: $10/hour. $250/child. 973-521-5100, coastalsportsnj.com
