Kiddie Keep Well Camp began as a Fresh Air Focused Camp in 1924, and was renamed after Senator John E. Toolan, who served the people of New Jersey from 1933-1948. Dedicated to providing summertime fun and enjoyment to the less privileged children of Middlesex County, Kiddie Keep itll is the only camp of its kind in New Jersey and one of the oldest in the nation. Located in Roosevelt Park, the Camp has room to accommodate 150 children at a time. There are two swimming pools, nine cabins, an administrative building, and a learning center. Each summer the camp accepts about six hundred children, ages 7-15, from an applicant pool of 800 to 1000 children for one of four 11-day sessions at no cost to the families.
