Summer in Hoboken is a pretty amazing time. Not only is there access to the city and the shore – the reason I landed in Hoboken years ago – but there are such a wide selection of activities here for kids of all ages.
I always assumed every kid went to camp away from home but I have learned in recent years just how much there is to do at home. Between the water parks, the frequent ice cream trips there are so many classes and camps.
Hoboken is packed with theater camps: Mile Square Theater, Every Little Movement, The Hudson School Extravaganza, and Hudson Dance and Movement.
Other camps and activities include Mimi Kids’ Yoga, Puppetonia, Every Little Movement, Guitar Bar, Jr., Hoboken School of Music and Learn Italian Hoboken.
Then there is the crazy amount of water parks including Madison Park, Stevens Park, Newport Green (known as Target Park to most,) and those dolphins at Church Square Park. Don’t miss out on the hidden water areas at Columbus and Elysian Parks too.
Hoboken sure gets sticky in the summer but luckily you can stop for ice cream and water ice often too.
