Camp Jotoni's 40th Birthday Celebration!
Thank you to everyone who supported the 40th Birthday Celebration at Camp Jotoni on Sunday, August 28! This event was supported by Volunteers, Campers and their Families, current and former Camp Staff, Community Members, and Friends of Camp Jotoni.
Attendees enjoyed DJ music while visiting the petting zoo, sliding down the big slide, playing games and feasting on summer BBQ foods. Jody Friedman, community member and a member of the Rutgers Master Gardeners of Somerset, Hunterdon, and Warren Counties, received an award for her many years of volunteer service at camp. Turner Construction also received the Volunteer of the Year award for all their volunteer work at camp this spring to help get camp ready for the 2016 season. Kristen Wells and Vicky Thornton, Camp Jotoni Administrators, received an award for their 10 years of service.
In addition to celebrating 40 summers at Camp Jotoni, money was raised for the Camp Jotoni Capital Campaign. This campaign will be used to renovate the facilities and expand camp services to ensure we continue to meet the needs of those we serve.

Information About Camp Jotoni
The Arc of Somerset County has been providing summer camp and recreation programs to children and adults with disabilities for over 40 years. Since then, Camp Jotoni has opened its grounds to individuals with special needs and their families each spring to share the excitement of our unique camp experience.
Our goal for Camp Jotoni is to have this very special camp facility opened for year round respite programs. Respite programs offer parents of campers a much needed break from the daily care of their child/young adult. In order to have this service, we must continue to raise funds to help support new insulated buildings and facilities that can be operated in all four seasons.
The goal for 2016 is to raise 1.5 million dollars. Donations to the Capital Campaign will help us renovate our facilities and expand our camp services to ensure we continue to meet the needs of those we serve. In addition, we will have the ability to open our facilities for private use to our constituents and to the Warren Township Community.

Year-Round Fun at Camp Jotoni!
Sounds of joy and laughter fill the campgrounds. Warm summer showers, cool splashes in the pool, songs sung around a campfire are some of the shared memories created at Camp Jotoni, located in the rural Warren, New Jersey. Sponsored by The Arc of Somerset County, Camp Jotoni is a day and residential camp for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Campers are ages five to adult. Camp Jotoni is set on 15 acres in Somerset County, and the camp features a junior Olympic size pool, cabins, dining hall, playgrounds, open air pavilions, unspoiled woods, and nature trail.
Help Fund A Camper
In order to support all families, The Arc of Somerset County has created an individual Camp Jotoni Campership Fund called "Help Fund A Camper". This fund is a scholarship program that will help provide the financial assistance to those families who need additional support to be able to access Camp Jotoni's Programs.
Camp Jotoni is accredited by the American Camp Association
