Down the Jersey Shore and More! July 14–July 21, 2024


Sun, sand, surf, and a show—it’s on the Jersey Shore and more! Embark on a week of outdoor adventures with some historical and artistic twists, including a trip to New York City.


About the Trip

It’s always a Shore Thing in Jersey! From your base camp in the dorms at Georgian Court University, suit up for different outdoor adventures at the Jersey Shore—learn how to surf, hike, or bike at a state park; try adventure elements at our camp in the Pine Barrens; and learn more about local marine life while completing a service project at Gateway National Recreation Area in Sandy Hook.

Explore beachfront life while you visit three Jersey Shore towns (Asbury Park, Ocean Grove, and Point Pleasant); walk the boardwalk; visit the arcades; make a blown glass ornament; and spend some time on the sand, maybe even getting a lesson from a sandcastle artist.

One of the cool things about the Jersey Shore is how close it is to “the city.” Take a trip up to Liberty Park, hop on the ferry, and climb up the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty (which is actually in New Jersey). You’ll also see a Broadway show and walk through the famous Times Square.
