Sensational Summers is owned and operated by Barbara Rubin for the purpose of organizing and running summer camp fairs. Barbara Rubin has been running summer camp fairs for over twenty-five years. Many of the camps that routinely attend the fairs have been associated with Barbara’s camp fairs for more than twenty years. She also ran camp fairs for Women's American ORT and the American Camping Association of NJ for many years.
The goal is to hold camp fairs that provide the opportunity for parents to meet camp directors from a large number of quality summer camps and summer programs throughout the United States. In this day and age of dual working parents a camp fair is a wonderful way for parents to maximize their time for finding just the right program for their child.
Instead of spending hours surfing the Internet, parents can meet the camp directors in person and have a quality conversation about the programs and facilities that the different camps offer. Each year Sensational Summers organizes and runs a camp fair for the employees of Novartis Pharmaceuticals at their East Hanover campus.
