Campmor's Community Celebration Day

Come out for a day at Campmor get the opportunity to meet your local non profit organizations.

Non Profit Organizations:
Teaneck Creek Conservancy: The Teaneck Creek Conservancy is a 46-acre tract that is now a part of Overpeck County Park. Once used as a dump for debris generated during the construction of the nearby interstate highways, the area has been rehabilitated and a trail system constructed. For the most part, the dense vegetation screens the adjacent developments from view, and even the noise from the nearby highways is often drowned out by the chirping birds. At times, it is hard to believe that you are in the midst of densely developed Bergen County!

Hackensack Riverkeeper: Hackensack Riverkeeper Inc. is a non-profit public interest organization with the mission of protecting, preserving and restoring the Hackensack River Watershed. Public education outreach programs offered by Riverkeeper are the Eco-Cruise program, which is a two to three hour boat tour of the estuary commonly known as the Meadowlands; and the Canoe Project, located at Laurel Hill County Park in Secaucus.

NY/NJ Trail Conference: The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference maintains over 2100 miles of trails in the New York metropolitan area.

AMC: The Appalachian Mountain Club is your connection to the outdoors. With chapters from Maine to D.C., enjoy outdoor activities and learn new outdoor skills.

Hackensack Greenway: We are the *Friends of the Hackensack River Greenway through Teaneck*. Throughout the year, we plan hikes, lectures, trips, cleanups and various activities. Most are free. We help maintain, and promote passive recreation on the 3.5 mile Greenway and trails in Teaneck, along the Hackensack River. We are a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization; all contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. We are run by volunteers, supported only by dues and donations.
