Summer 2022 is all about exploring! Exploration is how children learn about the world around them and themselves.
This summer we will explore the beautiful Miami Valley through field trips to exciting destinations. All campers will participate in one field trip a week. Our oldest campers (Trees- entering grades 6 and 7) will have an additional field trip each week.
We’ll also explore our interests! As you look through our 2022 summer camp brochure, you’ll notice that we’re offering a variety of specialty camps that will appeal to campers of all ages. …
I’m Meryl Hattenbach, the director of Camp Shalom at the JCC of Greater Dayton. This will be my sixth summer as the camp director. I come from a robust background of Jewish camping. I grew up with the JCC summer camps: first in the day camp at the Cincinnati JCC, and then at Camp Livingston as a camper for five years and then a counselor for another four.
I hope this letter finds you and your family healthy and well. As you may expect, the JCC of Greater Dayton, along with the Jewish Federation, is monitoring the COVID-19 situation very closely.
The K-Club did a wonderful job starting our garden this month. We planted seeds of six different vegetables: sugar snap peas, radishes, kohlrabi (a weird looking, but delicious root vegetable), mixed lettuce, spinach and curly kale.
Reading a bedtime story is a special ritual for children and their families, and it doesn’t have to end when kids go off to Jewish Camp.
