Things to Do in Bergen County Week of June 15

Weekly Events  / 
We rounded up the best things to do in Bergen County and beyond on our weekend PLAYlist!
Sponsored Post: For most of us, summer camp conjures up images of fun and friends, but for kids with special needs who may have trouble socializing, it can be a stressful experience. This summer, however, Abilities Therapy Network, a pediatric developmental therapy center in Midland Park, is giving kids, ages 3 to 5, a chance to experience their Sense-ational Summer Camp where they’ll not only feel comfortable, but improve their social and communication skills and work on addressing other challenges while they’re at it. Components of two 4-week programs include social circle time, open play, Yoga and creative movement, cooking, crafts, handwriting, and story time.
