River Friends Day Camp

June 25 - August 10, 2018

A Day Camp Experience For Children Ages 2 – 6*
All of the adventure and excitement of big-kid camp with young campers as the focus. 

Located at the Shames JCC in Tarrytown, NY, young campers have a blast in a nurturing, easy-to-navigate environment. Our staff of professional educators and counselors have expertise in early childhood development and tailor the camp day to suit the unique needs of children ages 2 to 6.

At River Friends Day Camp, the day is jam packed with hands-on, developmentally appropriate activities. Kids move their bodies, learn new social, emotional, and physical skills, and connect to one another all while laughing and playing. Most kids don’t want to leave at the end of the day!

Every Friday, campers enjoy a magical Shabbat experience with challah and juice, songs, dance, and stories.

Some other highlights include and all-camp barbeque and international cooking week.

Early drop-off and late pick-up options make River Friends Day Camp a great choice for working parents.

*Age 2 by 12/31/18 to Age 6, entering 1st grade
Note: Five and six year olds are also eligible for Camp Twelve Trails
