Lincoln Park has historically offered incredibly low summer camp rates, while providing a quality camp exclusively for the children of Lincoln Park. We have upgraded the camp’s itinerary considerably over the past 10 years while maintaining an hourly rate of $2.50 or below. We have made every attempt to keep our camp fees as low as possible while outside costs are constantly on the rise.
Lincoln Park's Summer Camp is non-profit, but we do need to ensure that the fees offset the majority of the costs incurred and it was evident that changes were necessary to support the program.
The Lincoln Park Summer Camp is certified by the State of New Jersey and one of the requirements of N.J.A.C. 8:25-3.2 dictates the counselor to camper ratio, which is another cost-factor that was taken into consideration.
