Our Chaverim program includes staff experienced in working with children with special needs, a low camper-to-staff ratio, and access to our camp activities. Each week will be a new small group cohort of campers.
As part of their curriculum, Chaverim campers have an amazing time running the camp Shuk, modeled after an Israeli marketplace. Younger campers exchange shekels (coins) for goodies like entertaining toys and delicious snacks. 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.
Please Note: A minimum number of campers enrolled in this program is required. We will work with your family and evaluate your child’s current placement to best determine if a facilitator is needed. Spaces will fill quickly, so be sure to secure your child’s spot when registration opens in January.
