"The variety of activities each day keep things very interesting: swimming, art, cooking, nature, music, Zumba,  karate... I could not keep up with all of the new things my daughter has learned."

SWIMMING: In the mornings, campers receive swimming instruction from American Red Cross certified staff in our own 30′ x 60′ solar heated outdoor pool. They also enjoy free-swim in the afternoons.

SPORTS: We focus on age-appropriate athletic and motor skills development. Children learn the fundamentals of soccer, kickball, softball, and basketball on our dedicated outdoor sports field. We emphasize teamwork in a non-competitive atmosphere.

THEME DAYS: Campers come back year after year for Theme Days: Carnival…Car Wash…Penguin Day…Israel Trip…Olympics…”Shabbat”…Truck Day…Guest Performances…and so much more you’ll wish you could stay here all day with them!

FREE PLAY/OUTDOORS: Children enjoy using our playground to climb, slide, run, play and use their imaginations to create their own fun and games.

ARTS AND CRAFTS: Beth El Day Camp features top arts and crafts instructors to keep children busy and engaged in creative projects.

YOGA: Not just for Mommies, yoga improves flexibility, promotes a positive, calm atmosphere, and a healthy state of mind. Our campers love it.

MUSIC AND DANCE: First came music. Then came dance. We introduce our campers to songs and dances from around the world, and watch as they develop confidence and a sense of rhythm.

SCIENCE AND NATURE: Kids are never too young to begin learning about the world around them. Our younger campers enjoy nature discovery walks, and older groups are treated to MAD SCIENCE.

HEALTHY KOSHER LUNCHES: We care about promoting healthy eating habits. Weekly barbecues feature famous Beth El burgers. We offer fresh fruit snacks. Our entire camp is nut-free. Wheat free options are our specialty

SAFETY/REGISTERED NURSE: A Registered Nurse is on the premises all day, and a doctor is on call.

Beth El Day Camp is Proud to be Accredited by The American Camp Association.

The American Camp Association is a community of camp professionals dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults through the camp experience. A cornerstone of the ACA’s efforts is its Accreditation process – a way of grading how camps are doing. The standards against which camps are measured ensure that each camp complies with approximately 300 distinct health, safety, and program quality benchmarks. Beyond a state’s basic licensing requirements, ACA Standards address specific areas of programming, personnel, health care, emergency response, and management practices and youth development. Standards are applied to all activities in camp including aquatics, horseback riding, adventure and challenge activities, and travel and trip programs.

The ACA collaborates with experts from The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth service agencies to assure that current practices at your child’s camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.

ACA Accreditation is the best evidence parents have of a camp’s commitment to a safe and nurturing environment for their children. ACA Accreditation means that your child’s camp cares enough to undergo regular reviews of its operation.

My daughter's swimming ability has skyrocketed due to the amazing lifeguards and pool staff. The friends and memories my daughter makes at Beth El Day Camp are lasting and make her so excited already for the upcoming summer."
