About Us

We understand that learning and development of young children is a constant and continuous progression throughout the magical early years – spring, summer, winter, and fall. So for us, Camp Keetov is a way to extend the learning (and the fun!) of early childhood education through the summer months. Our programming provides children with indoor and outdoor experiences that inspire curiosity about the great world around them. With the guidance and support of faculty and counselors, children are provided daily sensory exploration opportunities, art expression, water play, music, movement, motor activities, and so much more, all within the Jewish context of our community. We integrate Jewish values and practice into our daily routine and prepare for Shabbat as an entire group with a member of the WHC clergy.

Summer 2019: "It's a Big, Wide, Wonderful World!"

“Camp Keetov is fun!” Join us in our timeless slogan and spend the summer with us. We are packing our bags, gearing up, and flying high to explore the big, wide, wonderful, world around us. Our journey will begin and end in our own backyard, and we will travel near and far – from Washington, DC to Hawaii and Alaska, from England to Israel, Mexico, and China, with many stops in between! We will build on children’s curiosity and wonder about the world and will learn about different cultures through food, song, dance, and art. If travel conditions keep us indoors, we will continue our journey in our classrooms, construction room, sensory room, STEM room, roller skating room, and wide-open indoor play space.

We have 8 one-week sessions – the first begins on Monday, June 10, and the last ends on Friday, August 2. Space is guaranteed for registrations received by April 1, 2019. Applications submitted after April 1, 2019, will be processed and accepted on a first come, first served basis, as long as space is available. When camp groups become full, we will begin a waitlist.
