Rutherford Jump Start

The YMCA offers an after care program for Jump Start participants that allows you to extend their day until either 4:30 or 6:00 with a fun camp experience. 

Your child will:

  • Learn new skills through enrichment activities. Each week will offer a new theme along with arts and crafts as well as physical and interactive games.

  • Participate in a broad range of activities including story time, circle time with music, movement and songs.

  • Enjoy a curriculum which promotes physical activity, teamwork and builds their self-esteem.

Our flexible schedules allow you to choose from 1 to 5 weeks of Summer Camp in Rutherford, NJ. 


Our staff is a carefully selected group of individuals who demonstrate a love and ability to work with children. The program is supervised by the Meadowlands YMCA SACC/Camp Director, Auldine Latko, who welcomes your questions.  For additional information, please call 201.955.5300 ext. 216.
