Shemesh Summer Camp

Our incoming kindergarten campers may be small, but they are mighty! Shemesh helps prepare your camper for the excitement of full-day Kindergarten with a full day of camp. Our staff are specially trained to work with our youngest campers, combining safety, compassion, learning and fun into every minute of the camp day. At Shemesh, we recognize that our kinder campers are going through a big transition and our staff are here to help both campers and parents through this new adventure!

Special just for our K campers:
  • Sensory, manipulative and tactile stations
  • Kinder time with staff
  • Weekly PJ Library activities
