Camp Kaleidoscope is ON for Summer 2021! Registration opens in January. For more information, please contact the camp office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Campers unleash their creativity at Kaleidoscope!
The 2021 Kaleidoscope program consists of four 2-week sessions. Upper campers choose their program, while younger campers enjoy a well-rounded day. Whether it’s performing in small groups, swimming in the outdoor pool or dressing up for special theme days, Kaleidoscope campers have fun, try new things and build self-confidence.
In a culture of kindness and caring, Kaleidoscope campers feel safe to explore their emerging interests and freely express themselves. Our talented staff of artists, performers and educators inspires campers to try new things in a pluralistic Jewish setting that embraces campers of all backgrounds, faiths, and beliefs.

Campers with Special Needs
Camp Kaleidoscope’s inclusive program seeks to enhance the social, emotional, physical and developmental needs of all children. All bunk groups are inclusive.
Campers with mild disabilities participate in all camp activities under the guidance of experienced counselors. Upper Campers (entering grades 4 and up) choose electives prior to camp and transition independently throughout the camp day. Parents may provide one-on-one aides or other support if necessary.
A limited number of spaces are available for children with mild developmental disabilities. Interviews are required.

Day and Overnight Camp Combo
Designed for prospective first-time overnight campers, this is an opportunity to enjoy Camp Kaleidoscope and try Camp Kingswood, JCC Greater Boston’s overnight camp located in Southern Maine. Register for at least two weeks each at Kaleidoscope and Kingswood for a combined special rate!
Counselor in Training (CIT)
Campers in grades 9-11 gain leadership skills by assisting Kaleidoscope’s experienced counselors and specialists. CITs spend half the day participating in electives (for example, the Upper Camp musical, arts classes, sports and swimming) and the other half assisting with campers and activities. In addition, they participate in special outings and workshops, lead the camp in tzedakah (helping others) projects, and plan and help with all-camp events.
CITs go through an application process and pay a reduced tuition rate. They must attend camp for a minimum of four weeks.
