Alison McPherson 2 years ago 0.0 Your rating: This review is for Camp Newark Museum. I know that many parents are now researching places to send their children for the summer, but I would not recommend the Newark Museum Summer Camp. The reason: My daughter hated the time she spent here. It ruined our entire summer. My daughter was bullied for 4 weeks by a Summer Camp “Veteran”. This particular child has been involved in Museum activity for years, unbeknownst to me at the time, and apparently gets special privileges. This little girl called my daughter a crackhead, continually criticized her work, told my daughter that nobody liked her, went out of her way to alienate my 10 year old from the other campers, would gang up against her with her friends, and finally shoved her twice. At every point I voiced my concerns to the Camp Director, Susie, and nothing happened. It was more of we will see, I will talk with her, I will talk with her mom, etc. However, nothing ever came of it. I caught up with her mother after camp and spoke about her daughter’s behavior, still nothing happened. Finally, I had to remove my daughter from that unsafe environment when it became physical. I worried about her everyday I left her there, for the entire summer. It was a terrible experience for the both of us. Sometimes she cried going there and many times she cried going home in the car. I want to say that my daughter attends a NEWARK Public School and has never, ever experienced anything like that in, yes, her 4 years at this Newark Public School. She just received a perfect 300 on her NJAsk Math test last year and has a very healthy sense of self, so it was heartbreaking for me to see her like that over the summer. Please don’t waste your money. I sent her there because I am passionate about education and exploration and was excited that she would have fun, but it completely sucked the joy out of our summer. Never again. I will spend my money elsewhere.
