All campers must be at least 4 years old by the first day they attend camp. In addition, campers must be potty-trained and able to handle a full day program.
Each day of camp will be a new and exciting experience for our campers as no two days with KE Camps are exactly alike! Our days begin with Hello Camp, a morning meeting of sorts where, through an assortment of organized activities, campers and staff get to know each other, review the day’s schedule and sing our special camp song! Similarly, we will end our days with Goodbye Camp, a time for wrap-up activities and reflections, SMILE Bands, snacks, and “see you later’s”. The bulk of camp will be spent participating in a wide variety of activities throughout the day that may include:

Lunch & Snacks
The club will provide a delicious and kid-friendly lunch for every camper each day. If you would prefer to pack your own lunch for your child, please do so in a cooler or backpack. A snack will be served each afternoon to all campers. We encourage you to pack some extra snacks for your child as well.
Please note that we are a “nut aware” camp. We ask that you do not pack any food for your child that contains nuts. Likewise, the lunches and snacks served by the club will not contain any nuts. If your child has a food allergy and you have questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
KE Camps requires all campers to wear our official camp shirt each day of the week. Please leave all electronic devices and cell phones at home. Campers should dress in comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. Additional shirts may be purchased at camp. Camp is a place to un-plug! Please pack the following items in a labeled bag or backpack:

Registration & Payments
Registration for Summer 2021 is open and will continue until we are full. You must be enrolled in advance in order to attend camp.
Full payment is due upon registration. This includes a one-time non-refundable registration fee of $40 which includes 2 camp t-shirts. We accept ACH payments and American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
If your child has special needs or will require extra assistance while at camp, please contact us before you enroll to discuss!
Cancellations & Refunds
All requests for cancellations or changes must be made in writing to our office via email at email@example.com. Cancellations made by June 27, 2021 will be refunded in full (less the registration fee). After that, there are no refunds. We will, however, always offer a credit towards a future week (if space is available) or for next summer.
As we enter into Summer 2021, we are fully prepared to take on the challenging circumstances surrounding Covid-19 - we did it in Summer 2020 and we can do it again! The health and safety of all campers, families, and staff members continues to be our absolute top priority. As we are all well-aware, protocols and guidelines surrounding Covid-19 are fluid and as such, we will adapt and adjust our policies, as needed, leading up to and during the camp season.
We encourage you to enroll early as spaces will be limited this summer and we expect that camp will fill up quickly! We are sure you agree that a summer spent at camp will be more needed and meaningful than ever this year.
Don’t forget to take a look at the important camp forms below.
The State Health Department requires a record of immunization OR letter stating the medical or religious exemption reason to be collected before your child may attend camp.

Meet Your Camp Director
Dear Campers and Families,
Welcome to Camp Cherry Valley! My name is Marisa Cumello, and I am thrilled to be back as your camp director this year. I love creating enriching summer camp experiences for children of all ages, and am excited to work with my wonderful team of counselors to make this the BEST summer ever!
I am currently a fourth-grade special education teacher in Edison, and have taught there for the past four years. Before that, I graduated from Seton Hall University in 2017 with a BSE in Elementary/Special Education.
This will be my sixth year working with KE Camps, as I was a camp counselor and co-director at Raritan Valley Country Club during my first three years before becoming the director at Cherry Valley. In addition to my work with KE Camps, I was a camp counselor at Branchburg's Recreation Department for a number of years. My experiences working in camps have led me to a career in teaching, and I strive to foster engaging and memorable summer experiences that will inspire your campers to show their S.M.I.L.E. values every day!
Some fun facts about me are that I had the AMAZING opportunity to travel with Seton Hall's Basketball team twice for the March Madness Tournament (Denver, CO and Greenville, SC). I have performed at Carnegie Hall with my college choir. My hobbies include cooking, baking, taking my dog on long walks, and CrossFit.
Some of my favorite memories from past summers include putting together the Alex’s Lemonade Stand event, organizing a Halloween parade, and making pizza with the amazing kitchen staff. This summer, we plan to coordinate a multitude of activities with our weekly camp themes, including STEM challenges, scavenger hunts, relay races, crafts, and exciting contests! We will also be giving back to the community through our Thankful Thursday projects.
I'm looking forward seeing both returning and new campers this summer!
All the best,
