Notes on the 2023 Family Day

The 2023 Family Day on Saturday June 17 almost did not happen! The weather forecast was lousy, but we had the event anyway and it turned out to be a beautiful 70 degree day! We were SOLD OUT and had almost 200 people at the event. Cost was $5.50 for children age 5-17 & $7.50 for adults 18 and older. The day started with coffee & Munchkins at 9am and a welcome from Camp Wyanokie Commission President Mike Crudele of West Caldwell. Music was provided by DJ Frank Polito of Sizzling Sounds and pony rides and petting zoo were provided by Mountainside Stables. The day continued with “Nature School” with Chantel, kids game, fishing and a hiking tour of the property. The West Caldwell Fire Department volunteered to provide a BBQ lunch of hot dogs and burgers and the afternoon finished up with “horse races” bubble gum blowing contest, hula hoops and Limbo. All the while, the West Essex Volunteer First Aid Squad stood by to tend to any medical needs. It was an awesome day and enjoyed by all.

If you are a resident of one of our owner towns, Please plan to join us for Family Day 2024 on June 15 – always the third Saturday in June.
