Beginning with toddlers (2 years old by 6/14/21) 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:

  • 2 yrs old by 6/14/21- Teacher to child ratio is 1:6
  • 3 yrs old by 9/1/21- Teacher to child ratio is 1:8
  • 4 yrs old by 9/1/21- Teacher to child ratio is 1:9
  • 5 yrs old by 9/1/21- Teacher to child ratio is 1:9

*Due to current COVID-19 regulations, we are limiting class sizes to no more than 14 children.

Dates

June 14-August 12, 2021
By offering just one session that lasts all summer, we are able to comply with state preschool licensing regulations that would otherwise require children to take 2 weeks off between sessions. We are happy to be able 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.
