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:


Arts & Crafts
Group Games
Fun with Foods
Super Science Projects
Soccer: 1 group lesson each week
STEM Challenges
Sports and Recreation
Enrichment Opportunities

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

A delicious and kid-friendly lunch will be provided to all campers each day.  We ask that you pack an afternoon snack 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.

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
Sunscreen: Spray for body is preferred
Water Bottle

Payments, Cancellations, Refunds

Registration & Payments

Registration for Summer 2019 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 Cancellations made by June 23, 2019 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,

My name is Adrienne, and I am so excited to be your Director this summer at Red Raider Day Camp! This will be our first summer at The Pennington School and we have lots of fun and exciting activities planned for you such as arts & crafts, sports, cooking, Wacky Wednesdays, Thankful Thursdays, science experiments and so much more!

During the school year, I keep busy by teaching high school students about the Spanish language and culture and coaching girls’ soccer. I graduated summa cum laude from The College of New Jersey with a B.A in Spanish Secondary Education and am currently pursuing my master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Montclair University. I have been working with children for many years in various situations, but my favorite experience I’ve had is at summer camp!

I have had the opportunity to work with many campers over the summers as both a counselor and assistant director. I am a passionate and enthusiastic person and I love being able to share that with my campers. My favorite part about camp is feeding off the campers’ energy and excitement. I love to laugh and be silly and when I get the opportunity to engage with campers and participate in the activities with them, it makes my day. I think camp is a great way for campers to try new things, make new friends, challenge themselves and make moments that’ll last a lifetime.

When I’m not teaching or at camp, I love to spend time traveling and trying new foods. I have traveled to more countries than I have states in the U.S. and am always looking for a new adventure. The coolest place I’ve been to so far was Marrakesh, Morocco and am currently planning a trip to Thailand! My husband and I love trying new restaurants and eating authentic cuisine when we travel. Our favorite food is Mexican, but we always love ending any meal with ice cream!

I am so excited for this summer because I know it will be a unique, engaging and unforgettable experience for everyone!

See you at camp!
Adrienne Capritti
