Deerkill Day Camp

Deerkill Day Camp

Summer is right around the corner, and now is the time for parents to find their summer camp!  #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino spoke with the owners of Deerkill Day Camp, Todd and Rebecca Rothman, about summer camps and what you can find at Deerkill Day Camp.

“Parents better start their search now and come on weekend tours to visit the camp before slots get filled,” explains Todd. Todd also mentions how the number one thing parents should look for in a camp is if it’s  ACA- Accredited. This means that your child’s summer camp cares enough to undergo a thorough peer review of its operation- from staff qualifications and training to emergency management.

Deerkill Day Camp is more than buildings, equipment, and scenery – it is a community, a vibrant space where each boy and girl contributes to the cooperative spirit that makes day camp such a magical place. When Rebecca’s grandparents Irwin and Mildred Rhodes founded Deerkill (Dutch for “deer stream”) in 1958, they wanted to create a community where children would be happy to explore their curiosity, develop new skills, form lifelong friendships, and, of course, have fun.

Now, 6 decades and 3 generations later, Deerkill Day Camp is still owned and directed by the Rhodes family and it is still that special place. Rebecca shares that their program is a really nice mix of both traditional and modern twists. They still have all sports that people would play at camp 20 years ago with an addition of new programs like movie-making, cooking programs and yoga. There is never a dull moment, you always have something exciting to do!

“Deerkill Day Camp is a nice mix of sports, arts and nature, an amazing opportunity to be totally unplugged, get away from all devices and be physically active getting in touch with outdoors.” – shares Rebecca.

To learn more about why so many families have turned to Deerkill Day Camp for their summer fun, visit them on their website. There you can find there virtual tours, videos and dates and rates. You can also follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
