At A Child’s Place we do summer outdoors!

The majority of our camp takes place outside in our idyllic back yard–a hidden gem in the heart of Lincroft–which offers a space to run and play games, the wonders of nature to investigate, inspiration for imaginative play, and shady trees under which to simply relax with friends or eat lunch.

Other favorite activities include arts and crafts, digging in the mud hole, and developing interests during our theme weeks.

Theme weeks this year are Amazing Architects, Regatta Races (in our pool!), STEAM Week, ACP Ninja Warrior, Culinary Adventures and Project Runway.

Children use our on-site, outdoor pool every day, with individual attention for weaker and non-swimmers from counselors who go in the pool with them.  A Red Cross certified lifeguard is always present, and senior members of ACP staff with many years of experience direct all aspects of camp life.

Children ages 3 ½ (fully potty trained) to 9 years old are welcome. Half day and full day schedules for five days a week are available. More information and registration may be found online at .

For any other questions call 732-747-0141 or email [email protected].
