THE YOUNGER DIVISION
Each day, children are given the tools, guidance, and freedom to develop their own love of learning. Our philosophy fosters the emotional, physical, social, and intellectual growth of every child. Because children learn by doing, our program is focused on an immersive curriculum, through which we enhance students’ interaction with people, places, and the subject matter at hand.

Starting our Day
Our Day starts off with welcoming the campers into the bunk! They're greeted with the room and tables set up according to what they'll be learning that day.
Davening & Theme
Once all the campers have arrived it's time for davening and theme!
What is the theme? Each summer The Arts CH Camp has a theme of the summer which is broken down into different concepts per week and then per day. This year we are learning Basi Legani! Each week we’ll be taking another concept from the maamer and learn it in a simplified way in accordance with their age and understanding. The art projects, science, baking etc. will correlate to the theme that they’re learning at that time.
We have the park and sports almost every day! The kids love going outside. The HC’s will run fun filled activities and create a good connection between the campers and prompt team building and friendships. They will run sports, bunk games, and much more.
Centers are a time where the bunk will have different activities to do in their classroom. There'll be a few spots at each center and a certain amount of time per center. This is a time where campers learn time management, interacting with their peers and have the opportunity to play with what they choose and love most.
During the summer we will learn art history, use different art mediums and explore a variety of methods of painting. The Director will be planning the art curriculum.
Swimming will be on Tuesdays at Oholei Torah from 11:00-12:00
We go on trips once a week on Wednesdays and use school buses for transportation. Trips last the whole day.
Our Dance teacher comes once a week to teach a choreographed dance.. They will learn it each week and perform it at our art exhibition at the end of the month.
Guest specials come every other week and do a special activity with the campers. One week will be a drum circle, the other will be pita making etc.
Specials are projects we do once a week at camp with unique supplies and techniques to learn.
Our Art teacher will come Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. She will teach a variety of arts each time such as FIne Arts, Art History, DIY projects etc.
