Katan - Camp Shalom

Beginning with toddlers (18 months by 6/13/22) and going up through children entering kindergarten (5 years old by 9/1/21), Camp Katan welcomes our youngest campers to a fun and nurturing summer experience! Children enjoy developmentally appropriate, engaging activities including art, tactile exploration, music, outdoor water play, and more, all led by our team of highly qualified and experienced preschool teachers! Special onsite events include bounce houses, dance parties, animal programs, guest entertainers, and all-Katan Shabbat. Campers ages 3-5 participate in weekly recreational swim, staffed by our certified lifeguards. COVID safety protocols are observed throughout our camp.

 

Campers are divided into classes by age group, and adhere to the following ratios:

  • 18 months by 6/13/22:1:4 teacher to child ratio
  • 2 yrs old by 6/13/22: 1:6 teacher to child ratio
  • 3 yrs old by 9/1/22: 1:8 teacher to child ratio
  • 4 yrs old by 9/1/22: 1:9 teacher to child ratio
  • 5 yrs old by 9/1/22: 1:9 teacher to child ratio

 

Dates

June 13-August 11, 2022
By offering just one session that lasts all summer, we are able to keep our camp groups stable and consistent and reduce the overall amount of children in a classroom. We are happy to offer our youngest campers a sense of stability and ownership of their environment during otherwise uncertain times. Feel free to contact us with enrollment questions.
