About Our Program

Camp Kitanim, the Congregation Israel Early Childhood summer experience is devoted to offering your children ages 2-3, a fun, safe and loving Torah camp environment.

Our programming focuses on themed weeks during which children explore and learn through arts and crafts, sports, cooking, games, songs, drama, movement, and many other fun activities.

The themes used to develop the programming will reinforce Torah learning that is currently being introduced in our Early Childhood program. We are in the midst of our planning, current themes being considered including Mitzvot and Middot. Hebrew will also be infused into activities to maintain and strengthen what the children already know.

Outside play is plentiful, including water tables, sprinklers, riding toys, playground fun, and games. Our playground includes a shaded area to ensure the kids stay cool during the hot summer days.

Our counselor-to-camper ratio is kept  low so we can get to know the children and keep them safe, happy, and engaged.

Each day includes:

  •  Age appropriate activities
  •  Water fun (donít forget bathing suits!)
  •  Rest time (for children who stay until 3:30)

Special programming will also be included on a weekly basis. Details are still being planned, past programs have included:

  • Yoga with Neshe      
  • Visits from Morah Judy and her Seeing Eye Dog
  • Reading Rocks with Morah Melanie
  • Music with Morah Emmy
  • Rabbi Marcus Fridays
  • Weekly Shabbos Parties
  • Fire truck tour
