New Camp Middlesex Programs; Open House Set for March 8

Twenty-three new programs have been added to Camp Middlesex for the summer of 2015. The camp, located on the Middlesex County College campus in Edison, is for kids 6 to 18 years old. It runs from June 29-August 21, 2015.

An open house, at which prospective campers and their parents can meet camp instructors, learn about all the programs and register, will be Sunday, March 8 from 1-4 p.m. in Crabiel Hall. A raffle will be held for a $100 gift certificate toward camp. Bring the kids to enjoy demonstrations and light refreshments.

Camp Middlesex is actually many special interest camps. Campers can pick their activity from a list of dozens, including theater, robotics, chess, magic, sports, video game creation, art, cooking, fashion, computers, and many more. Each session runs for one week, mornings or afternoons, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 to 5 p.m. Most kids pick two camps for a full-day experience. There is also a pre-camp option starting at 7:30 a.m. and an after-camp program that runs until 6 p.m. to accommodate working parents.
Most programs are $175 per half-day camp.

“Parents love the variety of programs,” said Elaine Berlin, the Camp Middlesex coordinator. “They tell me ‘Who else offers theater, painting, sports, science and cooking, all in one place?’ This is a great option for working parents who want their children to be doing something fun and fulfilling. It’s affordable, and all our instructors are certified classroom teachers who care about each child. We have a full-time nurse should the need arise. Plus, the classrooms are air-conditioned and the campus is beautiful. It’s a wonderful experience.”

New programs include Code Breakers; Relays, Games and Races; Lego® WeDo Robotic Challenges; Minecraft Designers; Lego Friends and Crafts for Girls; Study Skills for Junior High School Students; Lego Architecture; Blogging for Beginners; Camp Zombie; Video Game Animation; Amusement Park Physics; Digital Storytellers; Blood, Guts and Bones – Discovering the Human Body; Painting with Watercolor; American Folklore and Song; Minecraft Moddlers; Drawing for Beginners; Soap Making and Bubbly Stuff; Bracelets, Bling and Beyond; Party in the USA; Animal Planet; Origami – The Art of Folded Paper; and App Adventures: The Next Level!
