Parents in Colts Neck, New Jersey who wonder what activities their children should participate in during the summer ahead need wonder no more! An easy 20 minute drive takes you to our magnificent, 86-acre resort at Frogbridge Day Camp. Tucked in the hills of Millstone Township, our resort is full of outdoor fun, games, and special interest activities that pique the interests of all children. Since 1999, our mission to put “Children First” has held true and not wavered. Our top priority is to provide a happy, healthy, and rewarding summer day camp experience and make a positive difference in the lives of children.
Families near Colts Neck return to Frogbridge year after year because of our dedication to building strong and healthy relationships with parents and campers alike. Communication and transparency are the cornerstones of all that we do; and just a few of the reasons why parents choose Frogbridge Day Camp. Because Frogbridge is so close to Colts Neck, parents are encouraged to visit their children at camp at any time. The assurance in knowing this also helps many nervous, first-time campers grow more courageous when faced with being away from home without mom and dad.
Many benefits come with sending your kids to summer day camp. Children make new friends, grow in self-confidence, and learn new skills when they come to day camp. One family therapist, Michael Ungar, Ph.D., explained to Psychology Today how summer camp helps children build resilience in life, writing:
Summer camps… are perfect places to help children optimize their psychosocial development… summer camps are places where children get the experiences they need to bolster their range of coping strategies.
Our founders at Frogbridge knew the difference that summer camps can have in the lives of children when we opened our doors more than 20 years ago. We’ve seen firsthand the advantages that campers have over others when they come to Frogbridge. Some of those advantages include:
When children go to day camp, they learn quickly how to handle the challenges of meeting new groups of peers, taking risks, managing time, and learning how to ask for help. These experiences make the return of the school year much more comfortable as children are prepared with the social skills that they picked up in day camp.
Children can certainly attain these social benefits by going to other summer camps. But not every summer day camp is the same. There are distinct reasons why parents and children both pick Frogbridge year after year.
Because we promise to keep “Children First,” Frogbridge holds strict guidelines on the teachers and counselors that we employ. We maintain the highest staff-to-camper ratio in the industry, and the average team member’s age is 31 – many of which have children of their own at Frogbridge Day Camp. All camper groups between Pre-K and 3rd grade are taught by fully licensed and accredited NJ state teachers. Collegiate Education Majors lead 4th to 8th-grade groups under the supervision of licensed teachers. Parents who visit notice immediately the extra care and guidance that their children receive by the mature and dedicated staff we employ at Frogbridge.
Frogbridge Day Camp is the ONLY day camp where children eat freshly prepared hot and healthy lunches each day in our air-conditioned catering hall, rightly named Windows on the Water, for the gorgeous views of our freshwater lake. We proudly serve from a nut-aware facility and provide gluten-free options each day with all lunches served. Our chef is diligent in meeting and speaking with the parents of any campers who have dietary and allergy needs. You can be sure that, no matter how restrictive their diet, our expert culinary team will create a meal that your child will love during lunchtime at Frogbridge Day Camp.
Parents in Colts Neck know that, when they send their children to Frogbridge Day Camp, their children are in a safe and worry-free environment.
