Toddler Summer Camp

For ages 16-34 months.  Caregiver attendance required.

Swimming, Crafts, Music, Play and More....

June 20 - August 17

Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:30 - 11:30 am 

The Shearith Israel Toddler Summer Camp has been serving the community since the summer of 1999.  Our space allows children to move around freely.  It gives the opportunity to run and jump and a place to be together with other children on a regular basis.  We have small wading pools outside on our “beach” when the weather is hot. There is time for play, craft projects, exercises, saying Berakhot (blessings), snack, stories, music and more.  There is an opportunity for the caregivers to support the children’s activities and there are times when the teacher encourages them to sit on the side and observe while the children manage on their own.

There is a one-day option but we strongly recommend two days which gives more continuity to the program; it allows the child to be more aware of educational themes that continue for several sessions and also to see familiar faces on a regular basis.  We offer a 20% sibling discount when two or more siblings particpate at the same time. We warmly welcome both synagogue members and non-members to register.
