SCROLL DOWN FOR CAMP SHANA TOVA REGISTRATION

 

Dear Parents,

Camp Shana Tova is back for 5780! Our High Holidays youth programming is available for children ranging from 1-year-olds through fifth grade. We aim to keep your children cared for and occupied with appropriate activities so that you can have a meaningful Tefillah experience in shul. Camp Shana Tova provides babysitting for kids ages 1 and 2. Starting with our three year olds, Camp Shana Tova is a fun rotational program, where kids have youth services with shofar, High Holiday yoga, and High Holiday-themed gym experiences.

As wonderful and fun as our Camp Shana Tova programming is, there is no better way for children to learn about shul on these special days than by being in shul with their parents. Therefore, we invite parents to plan in advance to bring their children into services with them for special moments throughout all of the High Holidays. If you have a favorite part of Tefillah, share it with your child by picking them up before and returning them afterwards. This will happen most successfully if you make a plan with your child and familiarize yourself with the schedule of Camp Shana Tova, which will be made available to you in advance.

Our youngest campers (ages 1-2) will be in babysitting starting at 9:00 AM and going until 1:00 PM (3:00 PM or the end of services on Yom Kippur). There will be a Tot Family Service in a room different from the babysitting room - parents will need to pick up their child(ren) from babysitting and bring them to the Tot Service. Otherwise, children will be supervised in babysitting. There will be babysitting offered from 5:30 - 8:30 PM during Kol Nidre and again from 5:15 - 7:15 PM during Neilah. Parents need to come get their children prior to the final shofar.

For our campers in Gan (ages 3-JK), Yeladeinu (grades K-2), and Na’areinu (grades 3-5), we will have 4 rotations of 45 minutes each, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM (10:00 AM - 3:00 PM/end of services on Yom Kippur morning). These rotations will include youth services with shofar, High Holiday yoga, and High Holiday-themed gym experiences. There will be a counselor with the campers at all times and there will be a second specialist running each rotation. There will also be camp from 6:00 - 8:15 PM during Kol Nidre. The Na'areinu program (3rd-5th graders) will begin at 6:45 PM to allow children to attend the haunting beginnings of the Kol Nidre service with their parents. Na'areinu children should then be escorted over to the JCC where we will check them in quickly. 

We ask that each family spending their holiday here with our community volunteer for at least one shift over the course of the holidays. This participation is a wonderful way to spend time with our children over the holidays and also keeps the costs down for everyone. Please sign up in the chart below for the times you are willing to volunteer (scroll down to see all of the options). All program materials will be provided. “Hall Monitors” check in on each classroom and help ensure that parents are found if needed.

For campers of all ages, there will be snacks halfway through the morning as well as a lunch provided in the last rotation.

This programming is greatly subsidized by the shul. After September 1, we will be asking for $36 per child per holiday (so, $36 for Rosh Hashanah and $36 for Yom Kippur). If this is a financial hardship, please let me know.
