The following is a description of Toddler Summer Programs held in past years.

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

June 16 - August 20

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 beautiful Fidanque Youth Room is equipped with all new furniture, gear, and toys. Children can move around freely and safely as they socialize with other children on a regular basis. 


During our summer session, weather permitting, we enjoy outdoor time with small wading pools outside on our Portico “beach.” 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.


Note that 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.
