Early Childhood Summer Camp is the MJCC's introduction to the day camp experience. Children enjoy the vibrancy of a community center atmosphere, coupled with the intimacy of caring, professional staff and dedicated space, indoors and out, for our Preschool Campers. Campers who currently attend the ECC will benefit from the continuity of care, enjoying summer in a familiar environment. For JCC newcomers, camp is a chance to experience the diversity of our membership and the loving support given by our staff. Our experienced counselors provide each child with developmentally appropriate activities in the areas of art, music, sports, drama and Judaic traditions (all related to the session themes), as well as daily water-play in the MJCC Family Water Park.

Maleh – rising Kindergarten in Fall 2013
Maleh is dedicated to providing campers with high-energy, fun-filled days designed to prepare them for a smooth transition to kindergarten. Counselors support the development of higher-level social skills and lasting friendships by providing a balance between structured and unstructured supervised games and activities. Creative play is encouraged, and children have fun with science, stories, art, and writing. Independence is stressed during routine times of the day such as morning arrival, dressing for swim, lunch, bathroom, and keeping track of belongings.
