Priority registration for returning Kaleidoscope families opens January 4, 2023. Open registration begins January 11. 

Interested in learning more about about Camp Kaleidoscope? New families can meet our team on Sunday, December 11 from 10:30am-12:30pm.

After the Meet & Greet, feel free to enjoy our Chanukah Festival & Winter Market. There will be live music from Josh & the Jamtones, a winter marketplace supporting local artisan businesses so you can get some holiday shopping done, plus festive games, crafts, STEM projects, and a community candle lighting. We'll have Chanukah treats, hot beverages, and more.

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

The Camp Kaleidoscope day is about having fun! Campers explore the arts, science and sports, and spend time outdoors all while making lifelong friends in a warm and nurturing Jewish community.
