Families with Young Children

Camp Keetov@Home

With on-site camps canceled this summer, what’s a young child (and their parent) to do?

We have the solution – Camp Keetov@Home! Run by seasoned camp coordinators, Kfirah HaLevi and Kristin Zeldes, every day offers an interactive Zoom session at 10:00 am plus lots of themed off-screen activities to provide your child with a predictable routine while they have fun and interact (virtually) with friends.

What else?

It's free! And it's open to the community!
Come as often as you'd like. Camp is in session weekdays, from June 8 through August 14.
