Our Early Childhood Camps encompass the high standards of our school-year Early Childhood Development Program. We believe camp should be the place for making new friends and having fun-filled days. Our goal is to provide a summer of developmentally appropriate, interactive, outdoor activities that are sure to create special memories for even our youngest campers.

Children are placed according to chronological age so that we can offer a developmentally appropriate and safe program. Absolutely no exceptions can be allowed. All programs (except for possible limited off-site field trips for Gesher and Yeladim campers) are held at the JCC. Each group has their own individual, air-conditioned, brightly lit and developmentally equipped room to utilize as their special indoor home base.

 

Schedule
8 Weeks: Monday-Friday • June 28 – August 20, 2021
Our camp activity schedules are based on a five-day week. To accommodate varying family needs, we allow campers to choose to join us for fewer days in a week on Tuesday and Thursday or Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Campers who choose these lesser time options will get to experience a wide variety, but not all, of the activities summer camp offers. Tenokia have the extended full-day option only.

Important pick-up information for 9 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. campers: If you also have children attending the JCC's School-Age Camp, please come pick up your ECDP camper first by 3:45 p.m.
