Boulder JCC Preschool Camp Opens for Summer

Children planting in the brand new Boulder JCC Garden

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.

  1. It's a good idea of conducting summer camps for children. Besides school they get to learn something new. I hope children will enjoy the camp.
