Camp Lots-of-Fun is Family Promise’s two-week day camp held every August for kids ages 5-12 in our shelter and support programs, as well as children experiencing homelessness or housing instability that are referred to us from other organizations in Bergen County.
Every morning, our campers arrive eager to enjoy fun, new experiences like magic shows, scavenger hunts, a performance by a dance troupe, and more! A healthy breakfast, lunch, and snack are provided, and our experienced and caring staff infuse exciting STEM and literacy activities into each day. Campers find comfort in reuniting with old friends and making new connections with kids who have the same history of trauma and loss in an atmosphere free from the judgement, guilt, and shame that often accompanies being without a place to live. What’s more, this program meets a critical need for homeless working families by filling the gap in daycare before the new school year begins.
But most importantly, Camp Lots-of-Fun gives children the chance to learn, laugh, and play—and just be a kid!
