2021 Summer Camp Dates: TBA in December
Synagogue Membership Not Required
(Children ages 2-4 years)
Looking for a great Jewish summer camp in New York for kids 2-to-4-years-old? Staffed by our experienced teachers, the Stephen Wise Free Synagogue Early Childhood Center summer program is available both for children enrolled in the school, as well as neighborhood children who are interested in a fun, warm environment that fosters learning through play. The program gives children access to many of the school's resources such as our rooftop playground, terrace, indoor playroom, art studio and state-of-the-art water machine. Children can look forward to summer projects, outdoor gardening experiences, community themed days like "Pajama Day," and weekly Shabbat celebrations.
For children who attend the ECC year-round, the summer program provides an opportunity to build relationships with teachers and peers they’ll see during the upcoming school year within a familiar environment.
Juniors Camp Program
(15 months-2 years)
Priority is given to families entering the ECC in the fall. Registration for Juniors will open in February.
Our Juniors program offers an opportunity for incoming toddlers joining the ECC community to get to know the school environment, begin to become comfortable with classroom routines and meet other children and teachers they'll be seeing in the coming school year. Please note that a grown-up must accompany your child during class.
Our upcoming Summer Camp schedule will be announced this winter.
Camp will be three or five days a week, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Children may attend weekly for a minimum of two weeks or for the full six-week session.
This program is designed for children who have already attended a school separation program. The three-days-a-week option is available only to children who are currently in a 2s group.
