Greetings from Ridgewood, New Jersey!

Children and camp have always been part of our lives. I (Jeff) was a camper starting in day camp and proceeded through sleepaway camp. I was then fortunate enough to gain experience as a counselor in both day and sleepaway camps. I’ve been coaching children in every major sport for nearly 20 years.

Cindy also attended camp as a child. Her love for children led her to achieve a Master’s in Early Childhood/Elementary Education and a career as a teacher for special needs children.

We are hands-on directors who are available to you and your children each and every day. We can hardly contain ourselves in waiting for the Summer to begin again and look forward to creating wonderful memories and friendships that last forever.

Warmest regards,

Jeff and Cindy Grabow

Associate Director Matt Pritikin

As the Associate Director, Matt works year round to ensure that the summer is a safe fun-filled environment where friendships and growth are a priority for both children and staff. Matt is responsible for a wide variety of duties, but especially focused on operations, programming improvements, sales & marketing, staffing, family communication, and especially our children. 

After spending seven years in NYC working in the corporate world, Matt committed full-time to his original passion, summer camp. Three summers of his summers were working as the Associate Director at a day camp on Long Island, and another three as the Associate Director at an overnight camp in New Hampshire. In the "off-season", Matt lives in West Caldwell, NJ with his wife Michelle, daughter Ava, dog Buddy and soon to be son!
