The New Weis Center is excited to offer a Spring Break Day Camp from April 3rd-5th, at our beautiful Ringwood location in the Highlands region of northern NJ! The 152 acre property features a historic main building, covered pavilion, large recreation field, and a stream for nature programs and exploring.


Each day incorporates an exciting variety of nature-focused activities, to enhance your child’s enjoyment and understanding of the wonderful world around them. Campers will love the hands-on learning experiences we have planned! Crafts and games will focus on nature, science and the environment, and will incorporate the natural surroundings. Much of each day will be spent outside (weather permitting).
