Looking for a true, old school camp experience that will really make an impact on your kids’ lives? Liberty Lake Day Camp is designed to be a children’s summer utopia, combining a traditional rustic outdoor camp experience, with varied modern programming to appeal to kids with a wide range of interests.

The camp offers 60 acres of natural beauty including a 6-acre lake. Facilities also include two 80-foot-long swimming pools, huge athletic fields, boating and fishing docks, four large playgrounds, a high ropes adventure course, a rock wall, and a mini-golf course. You can even take a virtual tour of the camp online.


Located in Bordentown, NJ – about 30 minutes outside Center City – the camp was designed to teach life skills based on the core values of Liberty Lake’s 5-Star-Points of Youth Development: independence, integrity, aspiration, teamwork, and friendship. Bundled into this system is the concept of intentional camp: “Everything at Liberty Lake is done with the intention and purpose of furthering our philosophy and mission.” They believe every moment of every day at camp is an opportunity for both campers and team members to positively impact each other’s lives.

This unique approach to the summer camp experience provides children with a real world, real life experiential education. Liberty Lake’s theory is that fun is a natural byproduct of conquering fears, making friends, having real life experiences, learning life skills, and becoming the person you’re meant to be. No screens allowed – this camp wants to get kids back to their roots and teach them life skills at a grassroots level.

The all-inclusive tuition covers daily hot and cold lunch and snack options, weekly “Freedom of Choice” electives for campers entering grades 1-9, daily swim instruction and swimming-related activities, and bus transportation to and from camp – included transport from Center City!

Because their programming targets individual campers’ interests, kids can generate their own weekly activity schedule through an online database of selections. If your child wants something more than typical summer sports, arts and crafts and swim time, they can try fencing, beekeeping, and even the “Camp of Rock!”

The camp operates like a 60-acre village, creating bonds and fostering leadership between campers within their age divisions.


Liberty Lake employs highly qualified sports coaches; art, music, and drama teachers; and other specialty instructors from the local region. Plus, there are still staff spots open for older teens available this summer if you’re 10th or 11th grader is looking for a summer job!

Visit online for a tour, open houses, deadlines, fees, and applications. There are also open houses so you can go see for yourself – which you can always find on the Philly Tweens events calendar.

Pssst….Call and ask about the $300 per camper “Philly Special” for the 2019 camp season!
