Camp Netimus Statement Regarding COVID-19:

“We are still planning the details of our COVID-19 protocol for the summer, but it will include testing multiple times (before arrival, at arrival, after arrival), and masking with social distancing until test results are returned. Once we know everyone in camp has tested negative at least twice, we will proceed with a normal program, with adjustments to some indoor activity areas. While our out-of-camp trips to the baseball game, NJ State Fair, and the Crayola Experience are a big part of our summer experience, we have decided not to do them as they would mean close interaction with many people outside of camp. We will likely continue with our smaller day trips (mountain biking, canoeing, and banana boating) since we can more easily remain socially distant from the public.”

Camp Netimus for Girls was founded by the Moore family of Philadelphia and named after an 18th century Delaware Indian chief. Netimus opened in 1930 with 16 campers and included among its facilities the lodge, four cabins, the “bingee” (the shared bathroom in the cabin grove), and one tennis court. Construction was begun on the dam for the lake, and later a second tennis court and the infirmary were built. More than 80 years later, Camp Netimus Sleepaway Camp for Girls has grown to 140 campers with the same philosophy that has allowed us to thrive all these years. As a leading Sleepaway Camp for Girls in the country, Camp Netimus gives girls ages 7-16 increased confidence, self-reliance, and independence.
