Please refer to the chart below, which indicates where your child should be dropped off, according
to their group and day of the week.

If your child’s group indicates “CAMP”, your child should be brought to the green space located
directly behind the Shul at 9:00 am (Early drop-off is 8:30 am for those who have pre-arranged).
You can park your car in the back of the Cavendish Mall (all the way in the back behind Caplan
Duval). Tefillah will start at 9:15a.m. sharp.

If your child’s group indicates “NAUTILUS”, they should be dropped off at Nautilus Plus at 9:00

Swimming Lessons_________________________________________________
Nursery will have Red Cross swimming lessons twice a week and Pre-K and up will have lessons
three times a week. There will be free swim on Fridays for Kindergarten and up.
There will be no free swim during the 9 days before Tisha B’av but lessons will continue.
Sprinklers are available daily.
        *All campers entering the water are obliged to wear bathing caps*

WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR???
On Tuesday’s and Thursday’s, Nursery children should wear their bathing suits under their
clothes when they go to Nautilus, as they will swim in the morning. Pre-K campers should wear
their bathing suits under their clothes on Monday’s, Tuesday’s and Thursday’s, for they will swim
in the morning. All other children will be given time to change for swimming during camp time.

Bathing suits and towels should be brought daily

FOR YOUR CHILD’S SAFETY
To ensure your child’s safety, we ask that all individuals picking up children sign them out at the
end of the camp day. We understand that there are many parents waiting to sign out at the same
time, but for the sake of the children the extra few minutes of waiting are well worthwhile. If
someone other than the individual indicated on your registration form is picking up your child, you
must inform us or they will not be permitted to leave.

If you have any medication that must be administered to your child during camp hours, we ask
that you permit us to do so in writing.

WEB SITE & NEWS LETTER
Campers will receive newsletters every Friday to fill you in on the adventures of the week. The
newsletter also contains information on any changes or items you might need to send. Please
make an effort to read it. You can also find pictures and updates for camp at our Beth Israel Beth
Aaron website- www.shul.org, then click Camp Chaverim.

What do we send?

We had many items in our Lost and Found last summer (especially towels). Labeling is
extremely important in order for items to be returned to the proper owners

ALL ITEMS SENT TO CAMP MUST BE LABELED

      A knapsack
      A lunchbox (with snacks)
      A portable water bottle or canteen
      Bathing suit and towels every day (it's a good idea to put a plastic bag in the
       knapsack to put the wet items after swimming)
      Smocks or old t-shirt to be left in camp for art
      Sunhat or baseball hat
      Bathing caps
      Junior tennis Racket (light weight)
      Sunscreen (please remember to apply sunscreen prior to camp)·

                               *Important Reminder*
For those of you who have not included a picture of your child(ren) in your registration form,
please bring one to the Open House. It is for your child's own safety.

CAMP SPECIALTIES
ART
Campers will have a blast using their creative talents in painting, gluing,
constructing, collaging and much more. Some projects will be completed in a day,
others may take longer, but the children are sure to leave with some beautiful
pieces of art. We will also have periods of free art during the week, where children
will have a chance to use materials of their choice to create.


SPORTS
This summer, we are proud to announce that a new professional staff will be
leading sports. Danny Comanescu and Derek Alleyne will each work 2 days a
week to ensure that not only are the kids playing, but also that they are
learning many of the rules involved in the sport. This summer we are adding
basketball to our array of sports, which includes baseball, hockey, soccer,
races and more.


BAKING
Campers together with Sari will have a chance to "stir up" the fun as they bake
yummy recipes. A copy of the recipe will be sent home so that you will be able to
make it with your kids.


INFLATABLES
Every session campers will be able to experience the fun of jumping and sliding in
these safe inflatables. Each group will have their own scheduled time to enjoy.


LEARNING PROGRAM
Campers of all age levels will be learning on a daily basis. They will learn around
this year’s theme of “Chodshai Hashana” in an interactive and fun manner. Twice
a week, we will also offer extra learning in the style of “Chevrutod” for those who
wish to learn more.
                            SCIENCE
                            This summer the children will ask questions, explore,
                            experiment and reveal extraordinary discoveries about
                            ordinary things! Each week we will dive into activities that
                            are not only fun (and sometimes messy), but also the kids
                            will become experts at making hypothesis and observations.



MUSIC
 Our youngest campers (nursery and pre-k children) will take a hands-on approach
 to music. There will be sing-along with a great selection of instruments from around
 the world. They will have turns practicing and experiencing the beautiful music
 these instruments make.

Camp Chaverim is nut-free. This means that no nuts or peanut butter may be brought to camp, as
well as items that may contain traces of nuts. We request that if your child has come into contact
with nuts before camp begins, please wash his/her hands and face. This will ensure a safe
environment for our peanut and nut allergic campers. We also do not encourage children to share
food. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
