Camp Chaverim at Temple Israel
Located in the Early Childhood Learning Center at Temple Israel, our camp offers a nurturing, creative and unique early camp experience for children ages 2-5. Groups spend their time forming friendships, exploring new concepts and environments, bonding with their teachers and having fun! Our faculty is led by certified Early Childhood educators, who each bring their own expertise, personality and sense of adventure to our program. All classrooms are air-conditioned and open directly onto one of two age appropriate terraces for playground fun! Our campers love every minute of messy art projects, cooking, outside water play and playground time and visits from specialists like Kids In Sports, Art Farm and Mad Science. Our Four and Five year olds enjoy Friday field trips to various venues and activities in our Upper East Side community. Weekly theme days give children the opportunity to dress up and show their camp spirit for “Backwards Day” “Patriotic Day” and “Pajama Day”. Judaism is interwoven into camp life through weekly music time and special camp-wide Shabbat celebrations.
