      Camp Kumbaya adopts practices designed to engage children in positive and developmentally appropriate activities that are fun and constructive. We seek to foster an environment where children build strong bonds with their teachers and peers while understanding the importance of contributing to their community.

Day Trips

Campers broaden their horizons on trips to local area parks, community gems, and age-specific trips too. We will also travel as far as Cape May beach!

Arts & Education

Each summer, we explore the world through different themes and locales! Campers will engage in hands on learning experiences as well as freely explore materials in our thematically curated learning centers.


Our Athletics Director is committed to getting our campers and staff moving with fun games and activities! Campers will improve their fundamental skills while learning new sports! This summer, we revive “THE GAUNTLET” which is a full-camp sports tournament that promotes fitness and good sportsmanship.

Christian Education
