Our youngest campers get to experience all that camp has to offer. Campers will have swim lessons, free swim, sports, art, science, Jewish Israel culture, performing arts and much more. With a ratio of 1 staff to 7 campers, they will receive individualized attention, support and comfort.
Two happy campers.
