• LifeCamp (a 501(c)(3) organization) provides an enriching summer day camp experience for ~300 Newark area youths per day for six weeks during the months of July and August. Campers are between the ages of 6 and 13, and come from the greater Newark public school system as well as from Newark Charter School Programs (KIPP, Philip's, North Star, Link, Newark Legacy and New Horizon). 

    The LifeCamp campus is located on 90 acres of open fields, rolling hills, woodlands and fronts on the Lamington River.  The campus is an effective teaching environment that makes learning enjoyable by providing experiential and contextual learning linked to the camp's curriculum. 

    The Life Farm in Pottersville was first opened 92 years ago in 1923, and we continue to provide children from Newark with an enriching summer program in an unique country setting.

    POTTERSVILLE — Jiyah Worley stood shin-deep in a rocky stream that gleamed with light from the morning sun. With a small blue net in one hand, she and her fellow campers searched the crystal-clear water for tadpoles. "I see them, but it’s hard to catch them because they’re fast," said the 13-year-old girl from Bloomfield. See the rest of the story on the Star Ledger's Website: [...]
