Camp Simcha

Our summer camp starts June 29, 2020.

Our camp program is designed with the young child in mind.

We have just the right combination of active outdoor fun and relaxing indoor out-of-the-sun activities. From water play, mini sports, arts and crafts, nature, cooking, and music to special visiting programs like pony rides, clown show and chick hatching, every day is a special day at Camp Simcha.

Special Camp Days

We also have our special, special days like Camp Talent Show, Backwards Day, Disney Day and Carnival Day to name a few. The learning never stops: counting games, ABC activities, our “Book A Day” Whole Language Reading Program, etc. continue throughout the summer. And of course, Shabbat doesn’t take a vacation as Fridays are just as special in the summer as they are during the school year. Values such as mitzvot (good deeds), tzedakkah (charity), family, kindness and friendship are evident in all of our programs on a daily basis.
