Pashoshim, 18-24 Months
Open your child’s eyes to a world of exploration and friends. The Pashoshim is a safe and stimulating environment for toddlers to explore and grow. Children are given loving attention from our caring staff. Activities include art, tactile, music and movement, and water play. Our summer program also features opportunities for participation in special events with Katan (our 2-4 year old program), such as animal programs, guest entertainers, and all-camp Shabbat celebrations, as well as weekly “mystery” readers.
Katan, 2 - 4 Years
Take a fun-filled day camp experience for ages 2 to 4 years, add a huge helping of qualified knowledgeable preschool teachers, buckets upon buckets of water, toss in snakes and animals, layer it with plenty of clay and paint, spice it with music and dance, and top it with friends, sun, and fun…And you have Katan! Activities include outdoor water play, arts and crafts, music, and games. Special onsite events include bounce houses, dance parties, animal programs, guest entertainers, and all camp Shabbat.
Kindergarteners rule! For kids who are entering kindergarten in the fall, this will be a summer to remember! Not only will they meet new friends, but they will have fun while developing social skills through group interaction. Fun, creativity, and variety are the key words of Camp Yeledim. Campers will enjoy fine and creative arts, dance, sports, science, cooking, themed games and activities, and more. We will also have plenty of extraordinary and exciting special events each session.
