PRESS RELEASE

The Camp at Teaneck Creek, in collaboration with the Teaneck Community Education Center, funded by the Puffin Foundation, provides wonderfully creative end-of-summer experiences for Teaneck children entering grades 2-6. For three weeks, camp is held in “the Great Outdoors,” on the grounds of the Teaneck Creek Conservancy and in the Puffin, at 20 Puffin Way, from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., August 10-28.

Exciting programs, run by experienced teachers, stimulate the imagination, help to develop new skills, encourage collaboration, provide intellectual stimulation - and hours of fun! Thanks to a generous grant from the Puffin Foundation, the cost per child was minimal and included a special rate membership to the Conservancy.

During the first week (August 10-14), campers entering grades 2-3 enjoyed two wonderful Hobby Quest programs. Kids and Cameras - New Techniques in Photography provided children with professional quality digital cameras and taught them how to point, click, and capture scenery and people through a lens. At the end of the session, friends and family were invited to an exhibition of campers’ photographs. An online “gallery” of their work, and an album of their pictures were theirs to take home. In Making Magic, a real magician provided the tools and secrets that ensure mastery of tricks that will wow audiences. Magic tricks created by the campers were performed in front of an audience and were theirs to keep.
