Summer Camp in Morris County

Art and history come alive at Camp METC! Our creative summer camp runs throughout August from Monday through Friday, 9am-3pm, with after-care available until 5pm.

Weekly themes include:

  • August 5-9: Food & Fun – How has cooking and toy-making changed since the 1800s? From cooking to marble runs, campers will explore these activities from colonial times until the present, while making their own treats and games.
  • August 12-16: Creators & Heroes – Enter into our Web of Community to discover how inventors, artists, and tradespeople work together, plus how to be a community superhero.
  • August 19-23: Nature & Animals – Learn about the connection to farming, weaving, and spinning in the Garden State and explore the natural world using nature and natural fibers to create art.
  • August 26-30: Exploration & Travel – Decode the past and imagine the future! With activities ranging from migration to space exploration, our camp detectives will investigate transportation while their imagination takes flight.
