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 93 years ago in 1923, and we continue to provide children from Newark with an enriching summer program in an unique country setting.
Drop off is from 7:30 – 8:00 am at the Family Support Center 301 West Kinney Street (formerly Newark Vocational High School) – Pick up will be at the same location from 5:00 – 6:00. We will enter in the back, there is plenty of room for parking.
