Six Individual One-Week Sessions for Ages 3-14
Daily Schedule at Camp Newark Museum
Camp Newark Museum serves children ages 3-14 for 6 individual week-long sessions. Campers are grouped by age into classes spanning just 2-3 years in age difference to ensure that all projects are age appropriate.
Camp Newark Museum has a set full day schedule incorporating daily gallery visits, classroom projects, recess, lunch, snack time, nap time (3&4s only) and specialist visits. Every class, regardless of age, meets with 3 specialists each week, a Science specialist, who leads science labs based on our collection and planetarium; a Makerspace specialist, who introduces the world of tech and innovations to our campers; and a Music & Movement specialist, who choreographs the bi-weekly shows performed by the campers. On Tuesdays, every camper visits the Planetarium for a show geared towards their age group. On Wednesday, campers get to view the youth selections of the Newark Black Film Festival in the Auditorium. On Thursday, older campers enjoy our summer concert series, Jazz in the Garden. Campers 9 and up have weekly field trips at GlassRoots, a glassblowing workshop down the street from the museum.
On top of these fun activities, classroom teachers are also doing projects with them, based on what they see during their daily gallery visits. Each week either ends in a gallery exhibition of their projects or a performance showcase so the parents can see what they have all been working on during their time at camp.
Camp Newark Museum uses CampDoc software for their registration process. CampDoc is a leading program for electronic health records, which keeps our campers safe, while also allowing us to streamline the registration process for our families. Parents will be required to create a login to allow for families to register and then at a later date fill out each child’s Health Profile, which contains all the important information we need like emergency contacts, allergies, medications, immunizations and all camp policies/releases. All of this information is stored in the CampDoc database, which makes registering in subsequent years easier as camper’s Health Profiles only needs to be confirmed and parents do not need to enter all of the data again. Health Profiles must be complete by July 1st before camp begins to comply with State Health Regulations.
