If you’ve ever attended any of our previous fundraisers, you’ve probably heard us describe the “magic” of camp. A Taste of Camp is your opportunity to experience that magic for yourself! Join us at the beautiful Park Avenue Club in Florham Park, NJ as we turn their banquet hall into a small version of Happiness Is Camping.

DJ Lenny LeFave will play our campers’ favorite songs that are usually featured as mealtime sing-alongs in our Dining Hall or party starters at our camp prom. Passed hors d’oeuvres and dinner are reflective of upscale versions of classic camp foods. Dinner will feature a mac & cheese bar, a mini cheesesteak station, and a taqueria. Food and the open bar are included with your registration.

Camp activities will be offered during the cocktail hour, and participation is optional. Learn how to make a friendship bracelet or compete against our campers in activities such as pop-a-shot basketball, “fishing,” hula hooping, and archery. It’s sure to be unlike any fundraiser you’ve ever attended!
