Today dozens of children played, laughed, and celebrated the summer with their caring and nurturing counselors on opening day of Boulder JCC Preschool Summer Camp. Children played with water, sand, art, clothes, plants and friends. There was so much excitement and fun outside on the playground and in the brand new Boulder JCC gardens. At the end of the day, the children came together as a whole community for Camp Sing and many parents joined as well.
The day continued for the full day campers. These children spent time doing some of the afternoon activities such as tumbling, cooking, trying different science experiments, doing yoga and creative movement, and creating with clay, paint and other art materials. They rested from 1-1:30pm before the afternoon fun began.
The fun and experiences will continue all week and summer. On Friday, as the hallways become filled with the smell of challah, the whole camp will join as a community to celebrate Shabbat with Camp Shabbat Sing. Each week children take turns making the challah for the whole camp.
Space is still available for some of the four – two-week camp sessions in June and July and the “mini-camp” the first week in August. There are both half-day (from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm) and full day (from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm) options available as well as early morning drop-off from 8:00 am – 9:00 am. The camp is available for children between the ages of 2 1/2 and 5 years old.
