ABOUT OUR CAMP
Located in beautiful, rural Sussex County New Jersey, Camp Auxilium is conducted by the Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco. They are assisted by Red Cross-certified lifeguards, counselors, and activity specialists, offering varied land and water activities to all the campers.
Members of the Camp staff are with the children at all times in order to provide the necessary supervision. The Sisters are always present to advise and counsel. Daily hours are from 9:00 to 4:00 PM with free morning care starting at 7:00 AM. Camp Auxilium provides opportunities for fun, and discovery for campers to learn and grow to become the best persons they can be! Encouraged to participate in new activities through a varied activity schedule and calendar of events, each day includes a refreshing swim, meals, recreational, and patriotic activities. Comfortable, safe facilities and delicious food add to the campers' enjoyment of their experience.
Besides the regular camp program, Camp Auxilium focuses on spiritual and social development. The activities are directed towards the total education of the individual in present-day society so that he/she may most effectively serve God, neighbor, and country in the appreciation of the wholesome use of leisure time.
These goals can be achieved if each camper:
1. Takes an active and responsible part in religious services which include the Eucharist, ....the Sacrament of Reconciliation and devotion to Mary.
2. Keeps his/her own place neat and orderly.
3. Helps others slower than themselves to get ready for any activity.
4. Volunteers in service to his/her counselor or other staff member.
Rules for acceptance and participation in the program are the same for everyone without regard to race, color, creed, or national origin.
The Day Camp has three components: a Girls' Day Camp, grades 1-8; a Boys' Day Camp, grades 1-6; and a Learning Center Camp, children from age 3 to Kindergarten.
