Local Nursery Schools
Offer Summer Camps

LESLEY PEARL STAFF WRITER

I

n the dead of Michigan's
bleak winter its tough to
start thinking about how to
best entertain and enrich the
lives of sandal-clad toddlers.
However, area temple and
synagogue nursery directors are
doing just that — firming up
plans for full and half-day sum-
mer camps.
The key appears to be
themes.
From Israel to the environ-
ment, weekly schedules are
made to focus on a specific idea
or topic through art work and
guest speakers. Outdoor play is
also essential. .
At Congregation Adat
Shalom several programs are
being offered. Full and half-day
programs for campers 18
months to 3-years-old begin
June 20 and end Aug. 12. Hours
are 9:30 a.m. - noon for half-day
and 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. for full
day. Extended hours are avail-
able.
A mother-toddler program
for ages 17 months - 2 years and
Just For Me for 2 and 3-year-
olds runs from 10 a.m. - 11:30
a.m.
Themes included this sum-
mer are Winter Wonderland,
Hurrah for the Red, White and
Blue and Storybook Friends.
"Rather than going on field
trips, we bring the field trips to
us," said Dottie Levitsky, nurs-
ery director. 'We've brought in
farm animals, artists and envi-
ronmentalists.
"We try to do as much of this
outdoors as possible. Kids are
curious about nature. It's a
great way to learn."
At Temple Emanu-El, flexi-
bility is a top priority.
Parents can pick and choose
full and half-day camp options,
extended hours and days of the
week.
Three, three-week sessions
are available. Dates have not
yet been decided.
Nature, art, music and Ju-
daism are emphasized.
"This isn't like our nursery
during the year. We learn about
Judaism in a more informal
way, through song, prayers and
storytellers. The campers are
always aware of where they are
though," said Rena Cohen, co-
director of the nursery school.
For the more traditionally in-
clined,
clined, Bais Chabad's Camp
Ganeinu offers options for chil-
dren ages 3-12.
From June 27 - July 29 a
kindercamp is available for
campers ages 3-5 at the Farm-

ington Hills location. The West
Bloomfield branch offers boys
and girls 6 and 7-years-old a
joint experience during the
same time period. An exclusive
girls' camp for ages 8-12 is also
run. Aug 2-26, boys 6-12 may
attend. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4
p.m.
Director Chaya Devorah
Bergstein said the camp, which
translated means "our garden,"
aims for a mixture of physical
and spiritual activities. Morn-
ings begin with tefilot, but reg-
ular camping experiences like
field trips and arts and crafts
are blended into the day. Last
year, former Pistons players

There are many
themes set for this
summer.

came to the camp to run a one-
day basketball clinic.
"We use the camp as an op-
portunity to root children in
their heritage and culture, to
show we carry our Jewishness
with us everywhere, through-
out the year," Ms. Bergstein
said.
Other camp options include:
_ Temple Beth El —parent-tot
program for children 18 months
to 36 months and All By Myself
for ages 36 months to 3 years.
Hours are 9:30 a.m. - 11 a.m.
and will begin sometime in ear-
ly June for six weeks.
Shaarey Zedek runs an eight-
week camp at both its West
Bloomfield and Southfield lo-
cations. Parent-toddler camp
for ages 15-30 months is offered
on Tuesdays and Thursdays
from 9:30 - 10:45 a.m., 2-year-
olds attend unassisted on the
same days from 9:30 a.m. -
noon. Three and 4-year-olds
camp three or five days a week
for a full or half day. Half day
lasts from 9:30 a.m. - noon, full
day until 2:30 p.m. A special of-
fering is available for children
age eligible for kindergarten,
five days a week consisting of
mainly field trips. Sessions be-
gin June 20 and end Aug. 12.
Temple Israel camp begins
June 20 and ends July 29. Half
and full day programs are avail-
able from 9:30 a.m. - noon and
9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. three days
a week. Parent-toddler pro-
grams run from 10 - 11:30 a.m.
for children 18-36 months.
Movin' On Up, a transition ex-
perience for 2 and a half year
olds runs twice a week at the
same time. ❑
