As a result of the ongoing health crisis related to COVID-19, we are unfortunately unable to offer in-person camp services this 2023 Season. We will continue to plan for a safe return of all our campers in the seasons that follow. We are actively looking at camp facilities and activities to ensure we have the best and safest environment for socialization and recreation. From our “heart” to yours.

Sibling hugging

In partnership with the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCPP) of Sussex, Warren, Morris, Bergen, and Passaic counties, Easter Seals New Jersey Camping and Recreation provides two unique opportunities for siblings and other children in foster care to attend Camp Merry Heart.

Summer Foster Care Sibling Reunification Camp:

Hosted at Camp Merry Heart in Warren County, this camp program reunites children in foster care with their siblings in a safe, fun, and relaxing environment away from the stresses of their day to day lives. At Camp Merry Heart, the youth get to enjoy all the traditional summer camp activities: boating and fishing at the lake, scaling the climbing wall, challenging themselves on high and low ropes elements, letting creativity flow in arts and crafts, cooling off in the pool, and much, much more.

To put it simply, camp offers a little something for everyone.

Weekend Foster Care Sibling Reunification Camp:

From Fall to Spring, Camp Merry Heart is alive with a variety of seasonal activities and programming opportunities.  With smaller groups, we take advantage of additional challenge course activities, new sports & games, and seasonal outdoor and indoor activities, such as: jumping in a pile of leaves, building a snow man, warming by the fire hot chocolate and s’mores, or going for a nature walk.

There’s always something to do at camp!
