In an effort to keep the community informed about Summer Camp options in Rutherford, we are publishing this article. However, please note that due to the current pandemic situation it will be important to keep checking in with these small businesses regarding their registration deadlines and fees, as well as the dates during which camps will hopefully run.

Theatre Enrichment for Children (TEFC) will offer their Summer Camp from July 27 through July 31st from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm at the Rutherford Elks Lodge. Campers will have TONS OF FUN utilizing their unique ideas to make arts & crafts, play improv, team building games, and choreograph original dances!
