Kochavim Summer Camp

Kochavim Summer Day Camp Program

Children with special needs, grades K – 7th

Financial assistance is available. *Self-Direction and Medicaid Accepted*

We strongly believe that when every member of our community feels a sense of belonging, they are able to explore who they are and who they want to be, try new things, and venture outside their comfort zone. Kochavim is made up of individuals who are similar, but also unique. It is our hope that together we can ensure that Kochavim encourages meaningful participation and creates a warm sense of community for all of us.

Your child will enjoy the fun-filled days of summer camp while learning important social and life skills. We use our daily activities to encourage them to build solid foundations for personal growth and independence. Kochavim campers will participate in a variety of activities modified to meet each child’s needs, under the supervision of experienced staff, with a high camper-to-counselor ratio. Program eligibility is determined by an interview and screening process.

  • Our indoor activities will feature full access to our Indoor Junior Olympic Size swimming pool, rock-climbing walls, auditorium, 4,800 sq. ft. indoor gymnasium, outdoor playground, computer lab, video & recreational lounges, multiple classroom spaces, and more.
  • Highly trained and talented staff.
  • Bus stop transportation available.
  • Hot kosher lunches and snacks.
  • Early drop-off/late stay is available.
