Campers enjoy our beautiful, large outdoor pool for morning instruction, taught by our American Red Cross Certified Lifeguards, and refreshing afternoon recreational swim. Younger campers focus on aquatic skills, floating, and developing basic swim strokes. Advanced swimmers work on perfecting their strokes and building strength and endurance.
Campers progress at their own rate, with encouragement and positive reinforcement in a supportive environment. Low camper to lifeguard ratios define our program to ensure skill development and safety.
Our amazing coaches help our campers play hard and develop athletic skills. Campers can play traditional team sports such as basketball and softball, and try their hand at classic Israeli sports like Gaga. Our Tennis pros engage beginners through advanced players with creative games and drills on our state of the art tennis courts.
Campers engage in a range of art mediums throughout the summer. Forging imagination into reality through progressive skills and detailed instruction, our campers gain the appropriate knowledge to develop new and fun creations from year to year.
Campers of all ages learn their way around a kitchen, building skills, vitamins we get from our food, and a wonderful repertoire of recipes along the way. Some of our favorite creations include Dill pickles (dill from the garden), guacamole (cilantro from the garden), homemade pita chips and a GF apple crisp.
Nature + Gardening
In gardening, campers learn how to plant and take care of herbs in their own personal garden boxes. As the summer continues, they will learn about what makes each herb unique, and incorporate them into recipes and craft projects, such as lavender play dough. In Nature, learn about animals, weather and the world of sustainability. Through recycling efforts our camp is 95% waste free.
Super Special Days
Favorites include Carnival, Pool Olympics, Ninja Warrior Course, Paw Patrol, Hawaiian Day, Tie Dye, Crazy Hair Day and Truck Day!
Through playful poses, games and songs, our campers enjoy the beneficial practice of Yoga. Yoga helps children concentrate better, improve memory and balance and boost self-esteem. Practicing yoga as a group creates an engaging environment in which our campers have fun and learn to trust one another.
● ORIGINAL SONGS & PERFORMANCES ● LIVE MUSICIANS
One of Westchester’s finest children’s musicians brings the joy of music to our campers through both original and popular songs. Children are exposed to a variety of musical instruments, sing original camp songs and have a very silly time. Music is not only fun; it accelerates brain development, including language acquisition and reading skills. Campers are known to perform private, at home concerts throughout the year.
Through play, campers plan, construct and modify their creations that integrate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Ramps, Legos, Big Blue Blocks, wood planks and light tables are just a few of the materials that campers explore to spark learning and discovery.
