Activities

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:

Wacky Wednesdays

Every Wednesday at camp is a wacky one with a different festive theme – a true highlight of each week! Check out this summer’s Wacky Wednesday Calendar!

Thankful Thursdays

We are excited to announce the return of Thankful Thursdays into our camp program! In true camp spirit, every Thursday campers will have the chance to give back to their community by working together on a simple, fun and rewarding community service project. Check out this summer’s Thankful Thursday Calendar!

Lunch & Snacks

The club will provide a delicious lunch, afternoon snack and beverage daily. There will be a lunch charge of $6.25 per day per child. These charges will be billed to your club member account.

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.

Packing List

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:

Extra Snacks (Optional)
Flotation Vest: If you know that your child will be classified as a Bogey (our term for Non-Swimmer) this summer or you prefer your child to be classified this way, please pack a flotation vest for use in the Shallow End of the pool.
Golf Clubs (Optional)
Sunscreen: Spray for body is preferred
Swimsuit
Tennis Racquet (Optional)
Towel
Water Bottle

Payments, Cancellations, Refunds

Registration & Payments

Registration for Summer 2020 is open and will continue until we are full.  So, you may add additional weeks as the summer goes on. You must be enrolled in advance, however, in order to attend camp. We are happy to accept online registrations up until the night before the start of each week of camp, provided that space is available.

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 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 info@kecamps.com.  Cancellations made by July 19, 2020 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.

Form Downloads

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.

Parent Manual

Be sure to read this manual for important and specific details about camp.

NJ Camper Health Form Supplement

Download this health form, print, complete and fax or email back to us as soon as you can and definitely before camp begins. You may also log back in to the registration site after you have enrolled your child to upload the paperwork there. We will ask for some medical information about your child during the online registration process. In addition, NJ state law requires that this supplement be on file for every camper. We thank you for your cooperation in getting this form to us in a timely manner.

Authorization to Administer Medication Form

Should your child require any medication during the camp day (including an Epi-Pen or Inhaler), we ask that you complete this form and send it directly to our office or hand it to your Camp Director on your child’s first day of camp.

Meet Your Camp Director

Dear Campers and Families,

Welcome to Camp Bedens Brook! My name is Marisa Cumello, and I am thrilled to be returning as your Camp Director for the second 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 three years. Before that, I graduated from Seton Hall University in 2017 with a BSE in Elementary/Special Education. This will be my fifth year working with KE Camps, as I was a camp counselor and co-director at Raritan Valley Country Club during my first three years. 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 everyday!

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 last summer include putting together the Alex’s Lemonade Stand event, organizing a Halloween parade, as well as 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,
Marisa Cumello
