Yeladim division uses the Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program. The program is designed for campers to learn at their own pace and master the skills at each level before attempting the next challenge. The pools are staffed by Water Safety Instructors and certified American Red Cross Lifeguards.
Emphasis is placed on children enhancing strength, flexibility, coordination, agility and balance. Our expert coaches provide your child with a strong and proper foundation.
Campers experience weekly Friday Shabbat celebrations, challah baking, art projects, and special events which are grounded in Jewish values, language, and culture.
Children will express themselves creatively. Using a variety of materials, campers will learn crafting, drawing, painting, and sculpting, while focusing on weekly themes such as Friendship, Family, and Community.
Favorite children’s songs will energize each camper as they sing along to their favorite tunes while practicing new words, and even languages!
As an added layer of camp fun, we bring special guest performances and shows to our campers each Friday to celebrate Shabbat in a special way! These special events include animal shows, circus and magic shows, puppet performances, and more
Marks JCH provides daily kosher lunch and 2 snacks. Yeladim also receives breakfast upon arrival. You can find a sample menu here. For children who prefer to bring their own food, a camp cooler is available. Please note that Marks JCH camp is peanut-aware but is NOT nut-free.
