In the past we have offered “stay-back” camp for those campers not wanting to attend the scheduled trip, but we have seen a decrease in those numbers to as low as five (5) campers. The State dictates our counselor to camper ratio which means that even if we have five (5) campers at the “stay-back” camp, we are required to staff the camp with a Camp Director and two (2) counselors. We have had several days in which families have advised that they will attend “stay-back” camp and then simply do not show up, (sometimes without a phone call or other notice). This resulted in a staff of one (1) Director and two (2) counselors for only two (2) campers.
We looked at other towns and what they offered in 2022 and here are some of the hourly rates compared to Lincoln Park.
LINCOLN PARK: $4.00/hr before May 27, $4.50/hr before June 26, $5.00/hr after June 26
• Pequannock: $4.00 - outdoor camp – camp not held on rainy days
• Boonton: $4.20/hr before May 15, $5.00/hr after May 15
• Montville: $5.40/hr before April 18, $7.40.hr after April 18
• Spa 23: $8.09/hr camp is an outdoor camp at P.V. Park
Lincoln Park Summer Camp has not raised it fees since 2018, yet all the other outside costs have drastically risen including the minimum wage for our counselors. The 2018 minimum wage was $7.25 and has risen to $11.90 for seasonal workers. We feel the 2022 fees are more than reasonable given the fact that the campers are in a safe environment with indoor facilities staffed with directors and counselors with CPR training.
We have not posted the list of optional trips for 2022 as we are still calculating the pricing for each trip. The fee depends on the lowest cost we can negotiate with the venue as well as transportation costs, (which include buses and current gas prices). Week #2, (July 5-8) will include a trip at no additional cost to offset the shortened week and there are no trips planned for Week #8.
We have added extras to camp without any additional fees, such as breakfast before trips, pizza lunches, ice-cream trucks, and “Painting with a Twist”, just to name a few. We have a very late cut-off date of May 27 for the early bird registration, while some towns end their discount on April 18. Even our early bird cut-off date is later than all the other camps that we have listed and our regular rate ends the weekend before camp.
