Willow Lake Day Camp


Willow Lake Day Camp is located on 35 breathtaking acres in Lake Hopatcong, NJ.. Over 250 mature, fun, nurturing and responsible staff ensures that children try new things, gain confidence and learn new skills.

Program & Special Events: Each day, campers participate in aquatics, athletics, adventure and art based activities. We have age appropriate fields, courts, pools as well as equipment for the campers so that campers receive high quality instruction with an emphasis on fun and participation.

Staff: We take hiring staff very seriously and our staff are warm, caring, fun and energetic. Skilled specialists run each activity and our focus is on fun, safety and skill acquisition. Our staff make everything we do at camp exciting and our campers love to try new things, explore and follow the lead of our staff. Willow Lake staff are active participants all day, every day.

Facility: Our shaded facility has age appropriate courts, fields and activities for children ages 3-15. Four heated pools and two lakes are great for campers to cool off, learn to swim and enjoy boating, kayaking, fishing and tubing. Our belief is that our campers and staff should enjoy a clean, safe, organized and modern facility, but camp should be, well, camp! We are often told that we are a day camp that should be a sleep-away camp and that our mix of modern amenities in a rustic setting offers our campers the best of both worlds.

Food: Willow Lake offers a healthy hot lunch program. In addition to a hot meal, an extensive salad bar, sandwiches, yogurt, bagels and fresh cut fruit are available everyday. We are able to accommodate special diets and none of our foods use any nut oils or products. Campers are given ice pops or an ice cream snack each day before leaving camp.
