Starting at 10am, there will be a number of wonderful activities. In the past activities have included: Building your own rocket Balloon Helicopters Hot Foam Chemistry Sailing Boat Challenge Earthquake-proof design Evolution of Music Robotics Visiting the Book Fair And so much more! Also exciting for young children and their parents will be a visit to the Student Invention Exhibition. With their parents, children ages 2 through through 5th grade will be encouraged to explore science concepts through hands-on projects. Learning by doing is what inspires the students of Ilan Ramon Day School to love subjects like science, math, art, and technology. Having parents learn side by side with their young children only reinforces the value of becoming a life-long learner. Ilan Ramon Day School prepares our children to embrace the diverse challenges of the 21st century. We are a community Jewish day school with an integrated curriculum focused on critical thinking, community involvement, the values of Judaism, and a personal connection to Israel.

With access to various studios and outdoor spaces, campers and staff have all the tools and inspiration possible right at their fingertips.

We see every activity we offer as a "gateway," starting with activities children already enjoy, showing them how they might be Jewish, or serve as gateways to Jewish connections. Our activities include Israeli dance, Krav Maga, mountain biking, archery, cooking, hiking, gardening, basketball, horseback riding, swimming, arts and crafts, music, rock wall/adventure course and producing programs at our very own radio station!

Seven week-long sessions available for kids entering 1st - 8th grade. The magic and spirit (ruach) of camp coupled with developing a deeper sense of Jewish identity and the understanding that you belong to a diverse and dynamic Jewish community is why there is no better place to be a kid than at Camp JCA Shalom Day Camp. Jewish values, tradition, spirit and Israeli culture are woven into camp days through songs, art, stories, sports, drama, games and celebrations. We believe in teaching campers responsibility (achreiyut), cooperation (shalom bayit) and repairing our world (tikkun olam) in a way that goes hand-in-hand with splashing in the pool, enjoying the perfect popsicle and shouting a camp cheer.
