A Summer Filled with the Best Memories

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.

Fun for Preschoolers of All Abilities

The Weinstein JCC’s Early Childhood Department brings preschool children with special needs a very special summer. We offer an inclusive Early Childhood and camp program for children enrolled in our preschool/childcare program during the current school year. If your child is currently enrolled in our 2020–2021 preschool year and is receiving outside support services (OT/PT, Speech, etc.), he or she is eligible for this unique program. A pre-application meeting is required for all children with special needs who aren’t currently in the 2020-2021 preschool year. To determine eligibility, and to begin developing and implementing support strategies, a meeting is required for new children entering our program during summer camp. Call Melissa Bunce, Youth, Family, Camping & Support Services Director, at (804) 545-8658 to schedule a meeting.
