Camelback Resort, Tannersville, PA

A smash hit trip! It’s 84 degrees and fun at this splashtastic water park. We will enjoy age appropriate water fun in the various playing pools, tube floats, bucket splashing pools, slides and more. As always we will have plenty of adult supervision. Do not need to know how to swim. Please send backpack with bathing suit, towel (and flip flops or water shoes, if you have).

Young Chef’s Academy, Marlboro, NJ & Movie

Prepare and cook a meal from scratch in this well-equipped, safe kitchen, designed to offer full hand-on experience for children. We will perform every stage of cooking meal and dessert. We will have a full breakfast and then eat the fruits of our labor for lunch. We will then go and relax in the highly anticipated, fun for all movie “Sonic Hedgehog.”

Annual Halloween Trick-or-Treating

Please let us know if your child will be at SAM that day or will be absent.


Students attending SAM will arrive at SAM, have a short recess, snack and homework. At 4:15 we will go trick-or-treating around the school neighborhood in groups of about 5 students and a teacher. We will return to SAM at 5:45.

If you plan to pick up before 5:45, please let us know so we will bring your child back to school. Mr. Shutte will be in the Multipurpose Room that afternoon, coordinating the phone and early pick-ups.

Splurge Bakery Class, Hike & Movie


This day only: Drop-off and Pick-up will be at Dunkin Donuts on MILLBURN AVENUE in downtown Millburn

An interesting and intricate morning class at the bakery on making beautiful handcrafted fondant critters for our cupcakes. We will then, weather permitting, take a refreshing, easy hike in the S Mountain Reservation. After we’ve worked up an appetite, we will have a salad and pasta lunch at Gian Marco. We will end the day viewing the excellent upcoming movie “Doolittle”.

CANCELED – Rizzo’s Wildlife World, Flanders, NJ

We will have a nice lunch at Glenwood before departing, in order to have enough time to see and experience as much wildlife as possible. We will have presentations, learn about and get up close and personal with invertebrates, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. This is a very accessible and personalized experience. We will have a chance to handle many of the animals.

Snow Tubing in Shawnee, PA.

Super popular trip! Great, safe winter snow fun! Sit in a large inflated inner tube and get pulled up a big hill, then slide down in a path carved out of the snow. Similar to sledding, but a more comfortable, softer seat, no steering required since the tube stays in the path and path has a soft stop. Get a longer ride than an ordinary hill and no need to trudge back up pulling a sled. Lunch on the way there at McDonald’s, and snack on the trip home. Plenty of adult supervision. Exhilarating, outdoor fun!
Dress in layers and with hat, boots and gloves.

Alstede’s Farm, Chester, NJ

A wonderful seasonal trip to Alstede Farm which is all dressed up for Halloween. We will go on a hayride to the apple orchard to pick some fruit, then on to the pumpkin patch to select our own sugar pumpkin. The corn maze is next, followed by climbing and jumping from the hay pyramid and crawling through the hay tunnel and visiting all their displays. Of course there are the baby farm animals to visit and feed. Lunch at Wendy’s.
