Chaverim - 18 months to 4 years

Chaverim is Hebrew for “friends”

In the Chaverim Village, we welcome new campers into our Camp Yachad family.

H e r e  a r e  t h e  F U N d a m e n t a l s . . .

  • The Chaverim Village day kicks off with its very own spirited Boker Tov (good morning) activity.

  • Campers spend their days in a nurturing, structured indoor/outdoor camp environment.

  • Home base for each group is inside our newly renovated, state-of-the-art preschool wing so our littlest campers are protected from the summer heat.
  • Campers participate in an instructional swim program with experienced Water Safety Instructors. (We’ve heard Camp Yachad parents throughout the years credit Camp Yachad swim instruction for making their kids strong swimmers!)

  • Campers can romp around in our new J2O zero-entry outdoor pool with splash ground fun!

  • Chaverim days are filled with exciting and fun age-appropriate activities including sports & games, arts, music, TumbleJam, nature, martial arts, gymnastics, “Chaverim Highway” and more!

  • Special events and theme days are an important part of the Chaverim Village, complete with entertainment, carnival inflatables and more!

  • Get this...door-to-door transportation (for ages 3+), lunch and snacks are included!

  • Each week finishes up with a lively Shabbat celebration, songs and dancing!
