New Jersey’s Best Day Camp

We’ve created a summer camp experience that promotes your child’s growth, allows them to choose their own schedule, explore new interests and make life long friendships at our 42 acre day camp while enjoying our picturesque 5 acre lake in Millstone Township, New Jersey.

Our Progressive Summer Camp Programs

Black Bear Lake is a special place for campers ages 3 to 15 years old! We treat every child as an individual and structure our program so each camper can develop and grow as a well-rounded individual during their time with us.
