Deerkill Day Camp is a very popular camp option among Hoboken-area and Jersey City families. This third-generation family business, celebrating its 63rdseason, is located on a wooded 15-acre site and brings a community feel to the summer camp experience for campers age 3 through 15.
Deerkill offers children a chance to pick up a new sport or hobby, learn to swim and form lifelong friendships this summer. The diverse program includes professional swim instruction in large heated pools, an array of athletics on fields sized for younger and older children, creative and performing arts such as arts and crafts, ceramics, woodworking, dance, theater, music and digital photography, and specialties such as archery and nature, among other activities. A 28-foot climbing tower, “Deerkillimanjaro,” and tandem 250-foot ziplines were recently added to the program and their large 4,400 sf pool was recently renovated.
Deerkill offers daily transportation on mini air-conditioned buses, staffed with professional drivers and bus counselors. The Directors are on the camp grounds every day and accessible by phone by day and night; there is no large administrative staff and all the individual group leaders are adults, many of whom are teachers.
