During the month of July, Medford Lakes Colony offers a day camp for Medford Lakes children ranging from pre-school through 8th grade. Children enjoy activities including arts and crafts, swimming, canoeing, field games, and music that they bike to throughout the town depending upon their age. All children must have a parent or grandparent with a current membership to attend.

Thank you to everyone for another great camp season!


Congratulations to all of the campers who participated in the Mile Swim this week!

NJ State Code requires Youth Camps, like the MLC Summer Camp, to have every registered camper’s immunization record on file.

The NJ Health Department also allows us to accept valid medical and religious exemptions.

At your earliest convenience, if you have not done so already, please drop off, fax, email, or mail a current copy of your camper’s immunization records to the Colony Office – thank you for helping us be compliant!
