It’s hard to believe, but it’s time to start thinking about summer camp! Beth El Day Camp in New Rochelle will be offering its highly-regarded summer camp program for its 65th year from June 26 to August 11 for children ages 2 to 8. Accredited by the American Camp Association, Beth El Day Camp has an unrivaled staff-camper ratio and is known for its nurturing environment, cutting-edge programming and commitment to safety.
Beth El Day Camp is not your ordinary run-of-the-mill summer camp. Its programs span a wide range of guided activities to help young children develop new skills, make friends, build self-esteem, and develop a love for creativity and self-expression. Children participate in a multitude of sports and games, including soccer, softball and basketball. Music, dancing, karate concepts, magic, cooking and crafts are also offered, in addition to their creative nature program. Children swim twice a day in the large, solar-heated pool as part of the American Red Cross Swim program. And theme days like Truck Day, the Olympics and the popular Carnival Day are just some of the summer highlights at Camp Beth El. Camp is in session on July 3 and 4.
The kids are sure to work up an appetite, and Camp Beth El does not fall short when it comes to food! Nutritious (kosher) lunches are served every day, including barbecues and snacks in the air-conditioned lunchroom. There is something for even the pickiest palate, and the entire camp is nut-free. There is even a gluten-free (worry-free!) menu available. Every Friday, campers are treated to grape juice and freshly baked challah to celebrate Shabbat.
There are customized half-day, extended-day and full-day programs available by age groups. The 2-year-old program meets three mornings a week from 9am to noon. The 3-year-old programs run Monday to Friday, 8:40am to 1pm OR 8:40am- 2:15pm, and includes lunch. The 4-year-old program runs Monday to Friday from 8:40am to either 2:15pm or 4pm. And children ages 5 to 8 will enjoy a full day of fun! Early drop-off and late pick-up options are available.
