Goldman Family Preschool
Summer Camps

GFP Summer Camps offer children a variety of exciting, engaging and inspiring options of investigative play, to art projects, science experiments, group story times, and of course, lots of time outdoors on our amazing playground!

Summer Camp 2024

The Goldman Family Preschool runs an eight-week summer camp option. This year we are going to be offering 2 four-week sessions again which is best practice for allowing time for connections, consistency of care, and meeting individual needs of children.

Session One | Four weeks:  June 24th - July 19th. No camp July 4th and 5th.
Session Two | Four weeks: July 22nd - August 16th.

Families will have the option to choose a T/W/Th three-day or M-F five-day schedule for each session. 2024 Summer Camp Tuition Pricing:

  • 4-week session $2100, 5 days (M-F) |  $1260, 3 days (T,W,TH).
  • 8-week session $4200, 5 days (M-F) |  $2500, 3 days (T,W,TH).

There is a $200 deposit payment per session to secure a spot. If you do not pay in full at the time of registration, then you will be on a 2-part payment plan. Payment 1 will be processed April 15th, and Payment 2 by May 15th with the card you put on file in your campminder account. Deposits and payments are non-refundable. As in prior years, all camp charges must be paid in full prior to the start of the camp session. To learn more about registration, payment, and pricing go to our website.

The summer curriculum is modeled after our early childhood school program and is for 1-4-year-olds. The program takes place in our classrooms and outdoors on our campus. Summer hours are Monday through Thursday 8:30AM - 4:30PM and Fridays 8:30AM - 3:30PM. We end our day on Fridays with Shabbat from 3:15-3:30PM. Summer camps are staffed by our highly qualified year-round Early Childhood Educators who will enrich your child's learning with fun opportunities, lots of exploration, and hands-on discovery.

While incorporating Jewish culture and values to the program, we help the children to explore, grow, learn and have fun! We use a thematic-based curriculum to enrich your child’s learning. Our daily schedule includes literature, art, music, science activities, outdoor water play, and on Fridays our special Shabbat celebration. We will be outside for most of the days in our beautiful natural playground and on our JCA campus.

We adhere to all CDC and DHHS recommended guidelines. Information will be available at registration and updated accordingly.

Please Note: A minimum number of children are needed to run the program and registration will be processed on a first come first serve basis. We use mixed age groups whenever needed per staffing.

 

GFP Summer Camp Abilities 

We welcome children of differing abilities and will do our best to accommodate any special needs if we can. However, please be aware that our summer and aftercare program staff ratios do not always allow us to work with students who require a high frequency of one-on-one guidance and who have challenges outside of what is developmentally appropriate, such as following simple direction, staying with the group and engaging in summer camp with appropriate and safe behaviors. We provide care and curriculum design with the whole child in mind. School and auxiliary summer and aftercare programming also require different levels of physical/mental ability for children to be successful in group care. If you have questions about how your child's specific abilities will affect their camp experience, please contact the Preschool Director to discuss the situation and devise a plan that will be beneficial for everyone.
