We rounded up the best things to do in Bergen County and beyond on our weekend PLAYlist!
Sponsored Post: Camp Lindgren in Closter is a slice of pressure-free heaven for kids ages 3 - 11. The beautiful outdoor grounds and pavilions create a true outdoor camp experience, and children have the freedom to choose how to spend their time each day. Campers can choose painting or playing games, making mud pies or real pies, learning about birds or learning to swim. (Sorry, frazzled moms, this day camp is for kids only, but the good vibes may rub off on you!) (Camp Lindgren, 211 Irving Ave, Closter, NJ (201) 768-3550 http://lindgrenschool.com/summer-camp/)
