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.
