Summer Camp


Summer is the time of year when children make new memories, build lifelong skills and everlasting friendships. At the Meadowlands YMCA Summer Day Camps, your child will engage in a variety of activities to develop confidence, keep them active and healthy, promote social and interpersonal skills and challenge them to try new things - all in a safe environment led by positive adult role models.

The Meadowlands YMCA understands that each family has their own summer camp needs so we offer flexible schedules, including daily and weekly options that don't require summer-long commitments.

Our weekly summer camps in Bergen County, NJ start on June 17th and run until August 30th. 


This year, we’ll be introducing new camps, camp-wide weekly themes, mindful activities like yoga and martial arts, exciting trips for travel camp, and a Counselor-in-Training program that focuses on teen career development. It’s sure to be an, action-packed summer like no other! Here are some of the highlights for 2019 Summer Camps:

  • Camp Meadowlands is a new retro-themed camp with a modern twist
  • Brianiac Academy  helps little learners to stay on top of their game with brain-boosting activities that reinforce the year’s school lessons, but in fresh and invigorating ways that feel like play rather than work.
  • Counselor-in-Training Program will help teens to develop the expertise needed to be a camp counselor, land jobs, ace their college interviews, build resumes, and other professional development skills that will translate far beyond the Summer Camp experience.
  • Musical Theatre Camp is now a full day program based on the many requests we received last year! We will expand upon the theatre experience to include set design, props, costume design, singing lessons, improv, and stage arrangement this year as well.

We're excited to offer you a more convenient way of providing us important information about your camper. The former “Parent Pack” will be replaced with the online CampDoc system, which will allow us to:

  • Quickly access important health and safety info on your camper
  • Carry over information year-to-year
  • Provide an easier process for parents/guardians

Upon the completion of your Meadowlands YMCA Summer Camp registration, you will receive an e-mail from CampDoc to setup your account. 


We believe that every child deserves a summer camp experience. Through our Annual Support Campaign, the Meadowlands YMCA raises money to provide camp scholarships to local families in need. Please call 201.955.5300 for more information and an application. Scholarship application submissions begin May 1st.
