Camp Shai Pod Camp Kids 1

Traditional Day Camp

Campers have fun doing a little bit of everything. Each day at camp, campers experience the best we have to offer with a jam-packed day of activities like Arts & Crafts, Sports, Teva (nature and science), Music, Water Games, and other fun Group Activities. 

RISHONIM

FIRST YEAR (Kindergarten)

Rishonim is designed to meet the needs of children in transition from preschool to Kindergarten. For most of these campers, it will be their first camp experience and we want to make sure they leave each day with more excitement than the previous one. Camp Shai campers are gently introduced to all of the fun and engaging camp activities as older campers with a built-in recharge time each day.

CHAVERIM

FRIENDS (Grade 1)

Back for another awesome summer, Chaverim is a great chance to get back into the groove of the camp lifestyle and continue to build those friendships from previous summers. Chaverim campers’ days are filled with the traditional camp activities including sports, arts & crafts, music, Teva (Nature and Science) and once a week we will head to the JCC pool for free swim!

TSOFIM

SCOUTS (Grade 2)

Keep a look out, here comes Tsofim! These go-getters are ready for all of the adventure we can pack into a day at Camp Shai including sports, games, music, arts, and swimming! Tsofim will take a deep dive into our Camp Shai Middot (Values) and truly learn what it means to be a Mensch (an upstanding person).

GIBORIM

Heroes (Grades 3 – 4)

Giborim campers get to experience the full magic of summer camp and spend their days creating art, playing sports, making music, exploring Teva, and once a week we will head to the JCC pool for free swim. Giborim is a high energy group with many opprtunites for campers to let their true selves shine!

BONIM

BUILDERS (Grades 5 – 6)

Camp Shai becomes a place of solified friendships for our Bonim campers! The group will be able to experience all the amazing activities of Camp Shai like Sports, Arts & Crafts, and Teva (nature and science). To keep their curious minds engaged, our staff are trained to cater these activities to Bonim’s abilities.

"Thank you for a truly wonderful first camp experience! We couldn’t be happier and feel lucky that we are able to send our camper (rising 1st grader) to Camp Shai so he can have a “true” camp experience like we had back east growing up."
