Parent Resources THE BENEFITS OF CAMP
Camp offers a unique opportunity for children to try new experiences, make lifelong friendships, and develop resiliency and confidence. With so much screen time these days, camp gives children an unplugged environment where they can get physical activity and connect with nature. Camp also fosters social-emotional skills, encourages teamwork and creativity, and makes time for play. At SPARK, we understand the power of camp and bring that magic to our campers each day.
SPARK is located at the Middletown Sports Complex in Middletown, New Jersey. The Complex also boasts a skating arena, ice hockey, a pool club, sports training, and various additional amenities.
For the 2021 season, SPARK will serve campers ages 6 to 12 (1st - 6th Grades).
SPARK Day Camp 2021 will run from Monday, June 28th through Friday, August 20th. Camp will be closed on Monday, July 5th. From August 23rd through September 3rd, we will offer Enrichment programs before schools open.
Campers can enroll for a minimum of two weeks up to our eight week full summer.
A typical camp day runs from 9am to 4pm. We also offer Before care from 8am to 9am and Aftercare from 4pm to 6pm.
