Welcome to Camp Marcella. New Jersey's premier residential summer camp ground designed specifically for children and teens with blindness, visual impairments and special needs. It is located at 27 Durham Road, Rockaway, NJ. These pages will provide you with a comprehensive overview of our facilities.

Camp Marcella is the facility designed and owned by the NJ Camp for Blind Children (NJCBC) incorporated, a non-profit organization started in 1947. At that time a casual type of camp facility existed, but to many parents it lacked the advantages of a complete camping experience. So NJCBC began recruiting the right people for the right job. With the physical work and contributions of over 1300 organizations and individuals including the Lions clubs of New Jersey , Camp Marcella opened its gates that very summer, and has been going strong since!

Today Camp Marcella comprises over 200 acres of woodland surroundings and a clear fish laden lake, with all of its facilities designed for the best possible care of visually impaired children.

The camp is located in one of the few areas of New Jersey that has not been touched by suburban sprawl. Camp is adjacent to the Pequannock Watershed, Farny State Park and a large Boy Scout Reservation. The combination of abundant wildlife, woods, lakes and serenity brings campers to an idyllic setting.

The objective of NJ Camp for Blind Children Inc. is to provide, promote and maintain a recreational, educational and rehabilitative camp primarily for visually impaired children.

Thank you NJ Lions Clubs

To this day the relationship between NJCBC and the NJ Lions clubs remains strong. With their tireless and steadfast support, both in terms of physical labor and monetary contributions the camp facilities continue to improve and enrich the summer experience of both campers and staff.
Camp Marcella could not exist without the unfailing support of the NJ Lions Clubs for the past 60 years.  Thank you for your support and partnership.  NJCFBC looks forward to  the next 60 years.
