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 are allowed. All programs (except 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 26 – August 18, 2017 (no camp July 4)
Our camp activity schedules are based on a five-day week. To accommodate varying family needs, we offer partial-week and half-day morning options for campers 18 months and older.

Activities
Throughout the summer there are cookouts, ice cream socials and other special activities planned for your child. Camp groups regularly have a friendship circle and each age level joins to celebrate Shabbat on Fridays. All children attending the Early Childhood Camps K'Ton Ton, Chaverim, Yeladim and Gesher have an opportunity to participate in daily activities, which include:

  • Art
  • Sensory experiences
  • Music and movement
  • Outdoor active play

In addition, Camps K'Ton Ton, Chaverim and Yeladim take time out each afternoon for nap time. Camps K'Ton Ton, Chaverim, Yeladim and Gesher have daily Red Cross swim lessons each morning. Camp Gesher also has daily free swim in the afternoons.

Register Early!
Early registration is recommended as many sessions fill up quickly. Camp Romano registration will continue throughout the spring and close at the start of each camp session or when a session is full, whichever comes first. A discount for siblings is available. A limited number of scholarships in the form of financial aid are also available. The scholarship application deadline is May 22, 2017.
