MCCC’s Camp College In-Person Summer Youth Camp Opens June 21. Registration Now Open!

New this summer! "Campus Kids Pods" and "Specialty Camp" offer a variety of courses and scheduling options  

West Windsor, N.J. – The Camp College summer youth program, located on the campus of Mercer County Community College (MCCC) in West Windsor, will be in full swing beginning June 21 with in-person camp activities all summer long for children ages 6 to 16. Registration for courses is now in progress.

Rose Fiorello, Director of Youth and Special Programs at MCCC, explained that Camp College’s mission is to provide the finest camp experience to children -- one that is remembered for a lifetime. Fiorello said, Camp College’s top priority is to keep everyone healthy and safe while having fun. We will be following Board of Health safety guidelines to make this the best summer possible.

According to Fiorello, Camp College will roll out a new and exciting Campus Kids Pods program format this summer where groups of children stay together. This season, Campus Kids Pods will be divided into two sessions operating Monday through Thursday (four days per week) from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The first session runs from June 28 - July 15 and second session runs July 19 - August 12. Campers choose a specific age-appropriate pod per sessionwhile staying together in small groups throughout the day.  

Specialty Camp is also new this year. This format specifically pairs courses to create a weekly (Monday through Friday) full-day experience, with some limited programs offered as a half-day option. Campers combine study in a variety of stimulating subject areas that emphasize intellectual growth and skills development with the fun of recreational activities.

The following is a small sampling of this summer’s Specialty Camp courses:
