Hi. We are moving to Livingston this summer. I have 11 year old twins boys. Just wondering where parents send their kids to camp. What are the good day camps? Also are there any sports specialty camps around like for basketball and for golf? One of my boys plays basketball and the other golf.

I'd love to hear any suggestions!

Thanks in advance.

Newark Academy (in Livingston, since you're new to the area!) offers some good sports camps in summer. But not golf.
Newark Academy ~ Sports Camps Overview

Found this for golf (otherwise, maybe call area courses for ideas/advice): Golf Camps | Livingston Sports & Recreation Events on Patch - Livingston, NJ Patch

Thank you both so much!!! Just curious...do most kids go to the township camp? Or do kids tend to go to specialty camps?

I'd like for my boys to make some friends before school starts so sending them to a place where they will meet kids that will go to their school in the fall would be idea.

Thanks!!!

The Newark Academy camps draw kids from many surrounding towns. If meeting kids from town if a priority, seems like the township camp would be your best bet.

both. the difference is that the town camp will be of all livingston residents, specialty camps will be from other towns as well.
