Summer Camp - Mahane Rishon

2017 Camp Session

June 19 - August 3, 2017

We are thrilled to present to you Mahane Rishon – My First Camp for incoming 2s, 3s and 4s.  This year's camp session will run from June 19 through August 3. Whether this is your child’s first, second or third summer at camp, Mahane Rishon is the perfect option providing a rich and wonderful camp experience for your child.  With a 3:1 camper to counselor ratio, campers get lots of individual attention in a nurturing and developmentally appropriate program. 

A summer at Mahane Rishon is fun-filled, exciting and so much more:  an opportunity to explore, grow, develop new skills, and form lasting friendships in a safe and loving environment.  With the help of our experienced and talented teachers, the children transition to their new age level in small groups.  Our experienced camp counselors are a combination of certified teachers along with qualified college students and younger CIT’s.  Our summer camp staff is CPR and First Aid certified and are very in-tune with every camper ensuring an amazing summer where children gain self-esteem, learn confidence and independence, responsibility, cooperation, communication and teamwork.  The enthusiasm and joy of the day are truly contagious and your child will come home with lasting memories.

Campers spend time outdoors each day, weather permitting, and there is plenty of water play to stay cool in the warm summer sun.  Activities include art and crafts, music, dance, movement, cooking, sports, and more. In addition we have weekly themes, visiting specialists and special events such as Mud Day, Animal Week relay races, obstacle courses, a special Independence Day celebration, and lots more!
