Scherman Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary


We offer nine weeks of on-site day camps for children entering 1st-6th grade and a four day pre-k and kindergarten camp. We also hold overnight camps at the Barnegat Bay and Delaware Water Gap for children entering 6th-10th grade. We are a state-certified summer camp and our camps are all taught by teachers and other professionals who have worked with kids for many years. Your children will explore nature, learn about the environment, and have a great time!

Please Note: BOTH Island Explorers I & II are FULL. We have spots for both boys and girls available in our other overnights.
