location

We are delighted to hold Connection Camp 2017 at beautiful Camp Louemma, nestled into a charming lakeside in Sussex, NJ. Located under two hours from New York City and under three from Philadelphia, Camp Louemma boasts a nostalgic summer camp feel, with open fields, hiking trails, and private lake access as the perfect environment to retreat from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind and dive deep into exploration and play with the Connection Camp community.

In addition to the scenic landscape and rustic facilities, Camp Louemma offers a brand-new Olympic size, heated swimming pool with water slides, kayaks and paddles for lake use, a variety of indoor and outdoor sports courts and fields, mini-golf course, playground, performing arts amphitheater, and more.
