Virtual Summer Camps

Welcome to Rutgers Preparatory School’s Virtual Summer Camps!

We know this summer poses some new and interesting obstacles for all of us, but we are prepared to rise to the occasion in true Rutgers Prep fashion and open new doors for your child to explore.

Join us for some fun and exciting experiences in our virtual camps. All of our camps are designed for children to participate in a variety of activities. Challenge your tech savvy with Tech-Ploration or iOS Video Game Creation; explore the flexibility of your mind and body with Yoga and Writing Camp; jump into the ever-popular world of Virtual SummerBlast and expand your singing prowess in Karaoke, build up your stamina in PE class, show your competitive side in board game challenges and game show tournaments or discover a new art form. All of these exciting activities, led by a caring and energetic staff, will encourage sportsmanship, cooperation, healthy competition, self-awareness, and positive self-esteem.

All camps will require a laptop or tablet. You will be given access to ZOOM prior to the start of your camp week. Any other requirements are expressed on the individual camp description pages.
