KinderCamp - M-F 9-1 for 2y9m to entering K

KinderCamp is a fun, enriching summer experience where campers grow, explore and make new friends. Our fabulous KinderCamp Director, Heather Greenberg, and her staff of experienced and devoted counselors/specialists are ready to make this summer an incredible one for our campers!

Contact Heather Greenberg at with any questions or concerns!

KinderCamp features a five-day schedule with regular camp hours 9:00am – 1:00pm. (See below for Extended Care options.) All campers must be potty trained.*

At KinderCamp, campers will enjoy: daily swim lessons with certified Red Cross instructors, Musical Adventures, Sports & Games, Science & Discovery, Puppets & Stories, Arts & Crafts, and Shabbat & Songs.

Our experienced, professional staff makes KinderCamp truly special here on the North Shore. Many of our counselors are JCCNS preschool teachers, public school teachers, and college students. In addition, we have the best amenities – a beautiful outdoor pool with a large shallow end, shaded pavilion, playground, grassy sports fields, an indoor pool and gymnasium.

KinderCamp Extended Care

KinderCamp Extended Care is available Mon-Fri, 8:00am-9:00am and 1:00pm-4:00pm.

3-year-old afternoon extended care campers will participate in our indoor KinderCamp programming in the main JCCNS building in our classrooms. Activities will include music and movement, story and craft, and snack time.

 4- and 5-year-olds will have daily Enrichments 1:00pm-4:00pm at the outdoor pool. (see below!)

Extended Care Enrichments:

Monday: Sports Ninjas

Let the games begin! Join us as we challenge our campers to some healthy competitive fun through relay races, obstacle courses, running games and so much more! They will acquire and build upon their skills to be amazing sports ninjas!

Tuesday: Art Fusion

Campers will explore their creative side through the use of various mixed mediums — from pottery to watercolors, and everything in between.

Wednesday: So You Think You Can Dance

Put on your dancing shoes, let’s spin our favorite tunes, and learn the coolest dance moves and choreographed routines! Classes include warm up, stretching, and “jump in” freestyle at the end!

Thursday: Science Wizards

Albert Einstein and Sir Isaac Newton have nothing on our campers. We’ll explore the forces of nature, hypothesize, and learn through experimentation. Science attire supplied. Your lab awaits you!

Friday: Oh The Places You Can Go

Pack your bags and get your passports ready as we explore the world around us! We’ll visit far away lands, majestic mountains, even the seven wonders of the world — and you’ll be back in time for afternoon snack!
