No Better Place than Camp Weequahic

For a first time summer camp experience to remember, there’s no better place to spend your summer than Camp Weequahic. Specializing in first time campers, this exiting sleep away camp gives campers a unique camp experience based on a flexible program where their parents can choose from a wide range of options and choices to customize their summer to best suit the camper’s interests, strengths and passions. From high-energy sports like soccer and basketball, to creative outlets like theatre and robotics, Camp Weequahic’s focus on choice, spirit, adventure, tradition and family creates a safe, welcoming and exciting camp experience for those who are new to the summer camp experience.  With two three week sessions or the option to stay for all six weeks, families have a lot of flexibility in planning their children’s summer.


The gorgeous waterfront location of Camp Weequahic makes it a picturesque place to experience fun and excitement on the water. The sparkling, spring-fed lake is where campers can try kayaking, water skiing and fishing for the first time, and the lighted and heated waterfront pool offers a refreshing place for a swim. For a more extreme summer camp adventure, campers can step out of their comfort zone and try the ropes course, rock climbing wall, mountain biking or zoom down a 400’ zip line. First time campers become forever campers after spending their summer at Weequahic, and it is easy to see why. The safe, positive and welcoming environment makes first time campers feel right at home, and builds a love and appreciation for the summer camp experience that they will cherish forever.


A Camper’s Experience by Baily B.

I’m 14 years old, and I’ve been at Camp Weequahic for two summers.  My first year,I signed up for three weeks, but I fell in love with the camp and, at the end of the first session, decided to stay six weeks.  I spent some time with my parents, but when I came back I felt as if I was coming home.  All the people in my first session bunk only stayed three weeks, so for the second session I moved into a bunk of kids who had been here for years.  I was kind of nervous about moving into a bunk of people who’d known each other for so long, but by the end of the summer I grew close with my bunk.  This year, I’ve come back to great friends and my home away from home.
