We are also excited to introduce two new event to our Hoops tournament:
Join us for an adults-only Kick Off to the Tip Off event at Surf BBQ on Friday, February 24, 2017, 7pm. As we head into March Madness, let's raise a glass to toast our amazing committee lead by Kristy Finnegan, Pam Lacey, and Marlena Redling. There is no cover charge and we will enjoy drink and food specials.
We can't wait to debut our new Junior Hoops event on Saturday, March 4, 2017! Now kids from 3 years old- 3rd grade can also be part of our largest event supporting Horizons.

Horizons at Rumson Country Day School has operated on our campus for twenty-one years. Each summer, Horizons offers a six-week academic, cultural and recreational enrichment program to at-risk students from a diverse, low-income population. Our students are in grades K-8 and live primarily in the Red Bank, NJ area. Horizons' goal is to offer more than 200 students the opportunity to attend Horizons during the summer.
- To prevent or reduce summer learning loss amongst Horizons students
- To foster lifelong desire for learning
- To provide cultural experiences and social growth
- To insure that all Horizons children learn to swim, an important life skill that saves lives and builds confidence
Volunteers are an essential component of the Horizons programs. Volunteers support our professional teachers, offer cultural and recreational programs, and assist our chef in providing nutritional meals. Many RCDS alumni and their parents serve as volunteers to the Horizons children. Volunteer applications for Summer 2017 will be available on March 1, 2017.
Horizons is able to operate thanks to the generous support from Rumson Country Day School, community-minded individuals, foundations, corporations and other charitable organizations. The cost of sending one child to Horizons for the summer is approximately $2,500.
BEST IN THE NATION
