Sherman ECC Camp Shemesh

 

OverviewProgramsScheduleFees and Registration OptionsTeen Volunteers

Welcome to Camp Shemesh. Our 35,000 square foot playground will be the centerpiece of our summer program. Spending much of the day outside, we will be gardening, exploring our new science discovery center, playing with our new water features, creating art outdoors, and constructing a cob house for our new play space. Our new track will be filled with a variety of riding toys and equipped with a custom car wash! The logs, slides, and sandbox will also be popular destinations for play!

Every morning will start with group flagpole where we will come together as a community to say boker tov (good morning), sing, dance and plan the day.

In addition to our time outside, the children will participate in daily enrichment activities including: Yoga, Cooking, Science, Spanish, and Helping Hands, where the children will be participating in mitzvah projects.

Camp is 9 weeks:  June 19th-August 18th and is open to all children in the community. Camp is available by the week, allowing families to accommodate vacations and alternative plans.  Schedules can be customized to meet each family’s needs.
