Chaverim - 18 months - 4 years

Chaverim is the Hebrew word for “friends” and is for campers ages 18 months – 4 years of age.

In Chaverim, we welcome new campers into our Camp Yachad family with age-appropriate activities designed specifically for preschoolers.

  • Campers spend their days in a nurturing, structured indoor/outdoor camp environment.
  • Home base for each group is inside our preschool wing so our littlest campers are protected from the summer heat.
  • Each day is kicked off with their very own spirited Boker Tov (good morning) activity.
  • American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim instruction from our acclaimed Aquatics Department in our indoor pool.  (We’ve heard parents throughout the years credit Camp Yachad swim instruction for making their kids strong swimmers!)
  • Campers can romp around in our J2O zero-entry outdoor pool with splash ground fun!
  • Chaverim days are filled with exciting and fun age-appropriate activities including sports, arts, music, TumbleJam, martial arts, gymnastics and more!
  • Special events and theme days are an important part of Chaverim, 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 Chaverim-only lively Shabbat celebration with songs and dancing!
