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.

Summer 2022 priority registration for returning campers opens on January 5, 2022. Registration for the general public will begin on January 12, 2022.
