Toddler Summer Camp

For ages 16-34 months.  Caregiver attendance required.

Swimming, Crafts, Music, Play and More....

June 19 - August 16

Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:30 - 11:30 am 

Each session runs 2 hours or we now offer a 50-minute "mini-session" option 


The Shearith Israel Toddler Summer Camp has been serving the community since the summer of 1999. Our beautiful new Fidanque Youth Room is equipped with all new furniture, gear, and toys. Children can move around freely and safely as they socialize with other children on a regular basis. 


During our summer session, weather permitting, we enjoy outdoor time with small wading pools outside on our “beach.” There is time for play, craft projects, exercises, saying berakhot (blessings), snack, stories, music and more. There is an opportunity for the caregivers to support the children’s activities and there are times when the teacher encourages them to sit on the side and observe while the children manage on their own.


Note that there is a one-day option, but we strongly recommend two days which gives more continuity to the program; it allows the child to be more aware of educational themes that continue for several sessions and also to see familiar faces on a regular basis.


While the full two hours are optimal for many young ones to settle in and enjoy a full range of activites, for some toddlers, a 50-minute mini-session does the trick - parents are encouraged to choose whichever options they feel are best for their child or children. Either way, your child will enjoy wading pool time (weather permitting).


We offer a 20% sibling discount when two or more siblings particpate at the same time. We warmly welcome both synagogue members and non-members to register.

Omer Board

Shearith Israel’s “Omer Board” dates back to the Mill Street Synagogue of 1730, and may indeed go back to the early years of the Congregation’s history.
