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
You have the option to purchase a kid-friendly lunch provided by the school for $25 per week. If you would like to choose this option, you may do so at the time of enrollment. Otherwise, you are welcome to pack a lunch for your child.
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 served by the school 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:

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!

Meet Your Camp Director
Hello Campers and Families!
My name is Sam Borelli, and I will be the director of Red Raider Day Camp at The Pennington School this summer. I am looking forward to a great summer and I can’t wait to meet everyone!
I am a recent graduate of Rider University with bachelor’s degrees in Elementary Education, Special Education, and Psychology. Currently, I am a third grade teacher at Village Elementary School in Montgomery. I have spent my past three summers as a counselor for KE Camps at Camp Cherry Valley in Skillman. I absolutely loved my camp experiences and I am excited to take what I have learned there and apply it to my new position as director!
Working with children has always been a passion of mine. From a young age I knew that I wanted to be a teacher, but a camp setting gives me the chance to interact with kids from a different perspective. Working at a summer camp is extremely rewarding because children have the opportunity to explore their creativity, socialize, and grow in unique ways.
Aside from camp and teaching, I have been dancing for sixteen years and began to choreograph my own dances in college. In my free time, I love to read, practice yoga, draw, and travel. One of my favorite experiences was when I studied abroad in Italy a few years ago! In the future, a goal of mine is to travel to new places because I really enjoy learning more about the world around me.
I have an extremely enthusiastic and energetic personality and I am truly excited to create a fun, safe, and positive environment for all campers. I hope you are as excited for this summer as I am!
