Friends of Camp Acorn

Camp Acorn is fortunate to the have the support of some wonderful local organizations across northern New Jersey. Our “Friends of Camp Acorn” page is meant to help introduce you to the people and organizations that work with us to provide a great program and positive community for our families and campers. Please take a moment to see what our friends are up to!

Fidelians of America – The Fidelians of America is a group of Italian Americans whose mission is to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate and disadvantaged. They aim to empower young people with disabilities to reach their full potential for personal development.

This past summer, the Fidelians sponsored Camp Acorn’s swimming program, helping us give our campers a very cool time! The pool provided not only summer time fun but also the swimming and critical therapeutic activity that individuals with special needs require. You can see some pics below:

Looking cool at the pool. Our campers had a great swimming experience in 2017.
Swimming is a daily activity at our Super Summers Program, which ran for 9 weeks.
The pool’s deep end really allowed our campers more movement and better exercise.

The Fidelians also have some fun events of their own throughout the year. So stay tuned for more info.
