The mission of our summer camps is to provide support to ensure a successful summer camp experience to youth who struggle with peer relationships, impulse control, fitting in with others, coping with emotions, and related difficulties.
Our goals are to help your child:
- Connect with like-minded peers
- Feel empowered to try new things
- Appreciate who they are
Our vision is to provide a typical summer camp experience to enhance the social skills and build the confidence of the youth we serve.
RJFS is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian, community benefit agency. Our mission is to strengthen the physical and emotional well- being of adults, children and families. We are excited to present unique summer programs.
All of our summer programs are located on the beautiful grounds of Ramapo College, 505 Ramapo Valley Road, Mahwah, NJ. See driving direction below if needed.
We have access to both indoor and outdoor space available throughout the summer: computer Labs, Theater, Yoga Studio, and more.
