8 Ways to Bust Your Kid’s Boredom

Don’t let the summer become boring! Fill your days with cool South Jersey fun to keep your kids smiling all summer long.


Spend the Night on a Battleship

Battleship New Jersey
62 Battleship Place, Camden
Experience Battleship New Jersey like the sailors did. With the war ship-turned-museum’s overnight stay program, groups can spend the night on the legendary vessel. Start with a line dinner in the mess hall followed by a tour of the ship. Then head to the crew’s bunks to rest your head for the night (just like the sailors did!). Breakfast is served the next morning, and everyone leaves with a personalized dog tag and a lot of memories. For more information, visit the website.


Take in A Movie Under the Stars

Various Locations
South Jersey has plenty of programs where the whole family can take in a movie outside – for free! Check out the cool movies screening at awesome locations from the beach to the river this summer.


Eat Breakfast in The Sky

Morey’s Piers
3501 Boardwalk, Wildwood
Dine on crepes, omelets and Belgian waffles while taking in a bird’s-eye view of the Wildwoods from atop the giant Ferris Wheel at Morey’s Piers. Breakfast in the Sky is served Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from July 22 to August 21. Cars seat up to four guests, and reservations are required. For more information and pricing, visit the website.


Shake Up Lunch

Various Locations
There’s nothing like spending the summer trying some awesome new eateries – especially the ones on four wheels. Visit these South Jersey food trucks to mix up your boring lunch order and taste delicious new dishes.


Try Your Hand At Archery

Ultimate Battle Zone
750 Delilah Road, Pleasantville
Forget your old dodgeball game, Ultimate Battle Zone has added a bow-and-arrow twist. During a session of archery tag, players use bows to shoot foam-tipped arrows at each other or the opposing team’s target. Walk-ins are welcome, but reservations are recommended, especially on weekends. Parties of 25 or more can reserve the space on Mondays, when the facility is otherwise closed. To reserve your spot, visit the website.


Pick Your Own Produce

Various Locations
Take Jersey fresh food to the next level when you pick your own produce at these family-friendly farms. Take home tomatoes, sweet corn, peaches and more to create your own fresh dish.


Meet Some Alpacas

Jersey Shore Alpacas
521 Route 47 South, Cape May
You’ll fall in love with these adorable alpacas. Even their names are cuddly – Chanel #5, Annabel Lee and Oliver Twist! Visitors are welcome to pet and feed the animals (carrots are provided by the farm) on Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm year-round and Thursdays and Fridays during July. There is no admission charge, but donations are accepted. Stay away in rainy weather – the animals generally stay inside. For more information, visit the website.


Cars, Cars, Cars

Various Locations
If your kids can’t get enough of their hot wheels, give them a taste of the real-life classics at these South Jersey car shows. The vintage rides and exciting roadsters will have the whole family cruising through the summer.
