New for Summer 2022
Our Shuk was the highlight of every week at Camp Isidore Alterman last summer, and for Summer 2022, we are thrilled to expand this impactful program to include all campers. Modeled after an Israeli marketplace, the Shuk is run by campers in our Chaverim Program for teens with special needs.
Each week, campers exchange shekels (coins) for goodies like toys, fresh fruit, granola bars, animal crackers, fruit juices, and more. Shopping helps strengthen decision-making and social skills for campers.
For our Chaverim campers, the Shuk fosters independence, helps improve communication skills, increases pride, offers responsibility, and gives them the chance to chat with fellow campers.
Shekels will be given to campers when they are at the Shuk. Gluten-free, nut-free, and dairy-free items are available.
We can’t wait for our campers to explore our new Treehouse, nestled in the tree line leading to the back woods. Campers will have an incredible view of Lake RB from the Treehouse, which will look out over the water and the surrounding canopy of trees. In addition to the view, this exciting new space will be home to a variety of our CIA activities, including everything from yoga to drama.
Health & Safety Guidelines
As always, the top priority for MJCCA Day Camps is the health and safety of our campers, staff, and their families. This summer, as we did last summer, and as the MJCCA continues to do year round, we will operate in accordance with public health guidelines, the CDC, and the American Camp Association. We constantly monitor all recommendations and will continue to sanitize, disinfect, distance, and maintain small groups as guidelines dictate to best ensure the health and well-being of our MJCCA Day Camps families. We will provide updates on summer 2022 protocols in the months leading up to camp. Deposits and camp fees are fully refundable through April 1, 2022.
