Moorestown Friends School (MFS) will host its 25th Annual Camp Fair on Saturday, February 4, 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 dozens of 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.
Refreshments and lunch will be available for purchase, and face painting will be provided for children.
A wide variety of summer camps will be represented, including day and residential camps for young people in preschool through high school. There will be camps focusing on sports, science, technology, ecology, theater, arts, travel, languages, academics, equestrian, roller coasters, and more. Examples of new camps exhibiting this year include: Windridge Tennis & Sports Camp in Vermont, a traditional camp that incorporates highly specialized tennis, soccer, and horseback riding programs; Acting House Studios Summer Camp of Medford, with classes in acting, voice over, and improv; and Math Accelerator – MEMSA Summer Program of Moorestown, a fun and educational program incorporating math, entrepreneurship, money management, science, and art.

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, Amigos de las Americas, 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.
