Free to be. The magic that is summer.

Camp Ganim

For Preschool Campers

Running, climbing, exploring, dancing, swimming, and lots of giggling—it’s all part of your child’s day when they’re at Camp Ganim. Designed specifically for children ages two through five, this fun day camp offers children a summer filled with fun interactions with nature, swimming, art, water play, music, gardening and more, with a group of great friends and caring counselors.


  • Creative nature and art activities
  • Developing friendships with peers
  • Hands-on Gardening
  • Music and movement
  • Outdoor water and mud play
  • Shabbat celebrations every Friday
  • Low child-teacher ratios
  • Swim lessons (toilet trained 3 years and older)
  • Spending lots of quality time outdoors in the gardens, edible schoolyard, playgrounds, climbing trees on the JCC property, and taking safe risks to build confidence and independence while exploring the natural world!

Families that are registered in the 12-month preschool program are automatically enrolled
in Camp Ganim. If your child is not currently enrolled in the Preschool’s 12-month program, please consider sending your child to either Session One or Two or both!
