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.

Thank you for a great Summer 2021! Registration for 2022 will open in the fall. Camp will begin on Monday, June 27 and end on Friday, August 19, 2022. Check back here in the coming weeks for additional information.
