ECC Summer Camp 2020

Will my child be in the same class during summer camp?

Yes. We anticipate having five groups for summer camp: Zrayim, Shorashim, Nettaim, Alim/Nitzanim/Anafim and Prachim/Perot/Ilanot classes. 

Is there a curriculum during summer camp?

We have weekly themes and different activities planned for the day which includes arts and crafts, cooking, water activities, sensory tables, ooey gooey activities, science experiments, bounce house, Shabbat celebration and special guests.

Will my child be with the same teacher that they currently have during the school year?
During the summer, some of the teachers take vacation time and/or attend Professional Development courses. Therefore there will be a rotation of teachers that work during the summer camp. Your child is familiar with all the teachers and assistant teachers. An email will be sent out every Friday during summer camp with reminders and staff placement for the upcoming week. We will try our best to keep the teachers and assistant teachers consistent with the children that they teach during the school year.
Will I be able to sign up after the deadline? Can I make changes after the deadline?

We have to abide to strict Teacher:Child Ratios and staffing is hired according to the number of children enrolled on the final day of registration. Therefore, we are unable to accept sign-ups or changes after the deadline. 

Is there any refund if my child is absent during summer camp?

Unfortunately not, as we hire staff and purchase materials and supplies according to enrollment.

What is parking like during summer camp?

Gateways is a summer school that rents space on SDJA’s premises. Their camp runs from June 22nd through July 30th, 2020 from 9 am – 3:10 pm. Traffic onto and exiting our campus is exceedingly busy from 8:40 am – 9:15 am and 2:45 pm – 3:30 pm. There is no Gateways camp on Fridays. PLEASE plan accordingly.

Is there a Hot Lunch program and Enrichment classes offered during camp?

Our Hot Lunch program and Enrichment classes are offered during the school year only. Please send your child with a lunch and water bottle. 

Are there specific activities planned on different days of the week? Do you have a pool on campus?
