It is with great sadness that we announce the difficult decision to cancel Camp Kaleidoscope this summer. We do not feel that we can deliver the core Kaleidoscope programming of theater, singing and the arts while following the CDC guidelines and American Camp Association Report. The safety of our campers, families and staff has always been of paramount importance to us. You can read more in the link below.

My son wakes up thrilled to go to camp. He has learned to swim, sing, perform and enjoy friendship building. He loves cooking, art, science and all other aspects of camp. Everything is so organized and there is a real feeling of happiness in the air.

At Camp Kaleidoscope, campers express themselves, build new skills, and gain lifelong self-confidence:

The Camp Kaleidoscope day is about having fun! The activities provide campers with opportunities to explore the arts, science and the outdoors, make lifelong friends, and develop new skills in a warm and positive Jewish camping community. Supportive, experienced counselors and staff help campers develop the assurance they need to tackle new skills and build self-confidence. 

The Kaleidoscope schedule is flexible. Families can enroll for two to eight weeks. Bus transportation is provided from 6 communities across Greater Boston with over 19 stops for easy drop-off and pick-up.

Campers are assigned to bunks according to age and grade. As campers mature, they choose from electives to build an exciting and challenging day. All campers are offered Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy (LKSA) instructional swim twice weekly and participate in free swim under the supervision of trained lifeguards.

Additional Information:

  • 1:5 counselor to camper ratio in Lower and Middle Camp bunks
  • Mixed and single-gender bunks organized by grade and age
