Trying to figure out what to do with your kids this summer?
Kadima’s Camp Kodiak is an enriching opportunity for preschool children (ages 2-5) to get acquainted with the structure of a school day in a relaxed FUN setting. Focusing on a different theme each week, campers explore the world of play, swimming, music, Shabbat, story time, arts and crafts, and dramatic play. Nutritious and delicious Kosher snacks and hot lunch are included in the camp tuition.
Camp Kodiak hours are 9am-3pm and they are pleased to offer early morning drop off at 8am. Monday-Friday and afternoon extended care from 3-5pm, Monday-Thursday.
