Kitat Ha’ashara provides a specialty camp for 4-year-olds. Campers will enjoy two sessions per day of hands-on instruction with professionals, centered on building experiences and skills in specific themes. When their schedule permits, they will join Camp Katan for special onsite events, such as bounce houses, animal programs, guest entertainers, and weekly “mystery” readers. Specialty sessions are led by experts in their respective fields, as well as by qualified preschool teachers. Children will also participate in a weekly swim lesson, unstructured playground time, and Shabbat celebrations.


We offer two sessions for Kitat Ha’shara campers: Get Creative (5 weeks, June 17-July 19; no camp July 4), and Get Moving (4 weeks, July 22-August 15; no camp August 16).


Age requirement: Kitat Ha’ashara campers must be 4 years old by September 1, 2019.
