Moorestown Friends School will host its 26th Annual Camp Fair and Discovery Day on Saturday, February 3, from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the school’s Baiada Field House. This is the largest Camp Fair in South Jersey, featuring over 50 camps that will come to campus to highlight their programs. Admission is free and the event is open to the public. The Camp Fair is sponsored by the MFS Parent Council.
NEW THIS YEAR! “Stars on the Move” mobile planetarium shows and robotics demonstrations will take place free of charge. Refreshments and lunch will be available for purchase.
A wide variety of summer camps will be represented, including day and residential camps for students in preschool through high school. There will be camps offering exciting and comprehensive programs in sports, science, technology, ecology, theater, arts, travel, academics, equestrian, roller coasters, and more. Examples of new camps exhibiting this year include: The Sports Academy at Brookwood Camps in New York, combining the best of sports and traditional camps in broad-based or fully-immersed programs led by “World-Class” professional instructors; SEA Semester at Woods Hole in Massachusetts, an internationally recognized leader in field-based environmental education at sea; Camp Sequoia, in Virginia, an overnight camp for boys to experience social skills success in a dynamic and nurturing environment; and Choral, Opera and Broadway Camp in Philadelphia, designed for singers ages 8-12 to develop vocal skills.
The Camp Fair will also feature programs that offer opportunities to travel internationally. For instance, The Experiment in International Living offers adventure travel, cultural immersion, and community service programs, in locations around the globe. Global Works runs a service-based program with international trips to Central and South America, Europe, China, Africa, and the South Pacific. Other travel camps attending include Putney Student Travel, Rustic Pathways, and ActionQuest GoBeyond.
Moorestown Friends School Summer Programs, which will be represented at the Camp Fair, provide opportunities for children to innovate, create, experiment, and collaborate with others. Summer Programs courses are available to students from age 3-17, and many programs are led by Moorestown Friends School teachers. All programs take full advantage of the beautiful 48-acre Moorestown Friends School campus: classroom, labs, athletic fields, four gymnasiums, and an outdoor pool.
