Summit, NJ It may still be snowing, but thoughts and plans are underway at Reeves-Reed Arboretum for an exciting summer of weekly camps. Under the guidance of Jackie Kondel, Director of Children's Education, and Lisa Martin, Environmental Educator, the Arboretum announces the addition of four new camp offerings to join the popular Elephant Tree Nature Camp.

New for this year:

Theatre Under the Trees (July 7-18), a performing arts camp where budding Broadway stars will love learning theatre arts with Tiana Checchia as they join the cast of Firefly, the Musical, an engaging musical adaptation of the well-loved story about Francis the Firefly. Created specifically for Reeves-Reed Arboretum by renowned composer and lyricist Michael Hoagland, this two week camp culminates with a performance for family and friends.

Teen Ramblers (July 28-August 1), a hiking camp where teens will explore some of New Jersey's most spectacular trails.

Art Adventure (June16-August 8), an art camp taught by instructors from the popular Creatively Yours Studio, and held in the beautiful gardens of the Arboretum.

The River Project (August 4-8), an environmental science camp where campers will create watersheds, conduct water quality tests, and wade through the Passaic River looking for aquatic life, all focusing on one of our most important resources...water!

Registration begins on February 15 (February 1 for RRA members). Multi-camp discounts available. For information about these new camp offerings or Elephant Tree Nature Camp, call 908-273-8787 x 1515 or log on to

So don't miss out on the fun, and learn why each year the kids tell us this is by far, their favorite camp!
