Day Camp

ALL DAY campers receive Daily Hot Lunch, Snacks, Camp Shirt & Camp Bag

 

Kindergarten to 7th Grade

Kindergarten to 7th grade campers will experience a variety of exciting, stimulating and action-packed activities. Our goal is to create an environment of positive social development, to recognize each child’s individuality and allow each camper to experience independence, enhance self-esteem and have fun! We are small enough to give campers a feeling of intimacy and comfort, yet large enough to provide campers with choices and an opportunity for growth. Campers are supervised by educators from our school staff, as well as knowledgeable adults with many years of education and camp/school experience. CITs are placed in each camp bunk, acting as role models and fun buddies for our campers.

Swimming at Day Camp

At Camp Beth Emet your child receives instructional and recreational swim taught by Just Swim Inc. in our on-site pool. Jeff Gershe, Just Swim’s founder and head coach, started teaching over 30 years ago and is still in the pool sharing his knowledge and teaching swimming lessons with passion. Campers are grouped according to skill level. Just Swim staff work with campers one on one or in small groups to teach them water safety, swim skills and how to be comfortable in the water.
