Our Team

Our Team

Interact with our year-round staff and you’ll find that their enthusiasm is contagious. But, that’s only one reason to love them. Each member of our team has a deep connection to the mission of NJY Camps and a dedication to the care of every camper and staff member that walks through our gates. Our workplace culture perfectly pairs playfulness with professionalism. This dedication comes from more than just a certification or degree, it’s born from experience, passion, and care. Year after year, we are so glad they choose to bring their talents to NJY Camps.
