Summer Camps

Camp Ahava

Ages: 20 months - 4 years

Camp Ahava

Camp K’Ton Ton (20-35 months)
Camp K’Tona (3 and 4 year olds)
Camp K’Tona Too, in Alexandria, VA (20 months-4 years)

Our preschool camp, which includes full- and part-time camping experiences, provides lots of stimulating, developmentally appropriate, hands-on and sensory activities for our youngest campers. They will play and explore at the JCCNV through music, art, games, water play, playground activities, and much more! Campers will use their imaginations to “discover the Smithsonian Museums” and have many more fun-filled adventures, making new friends and creating memories that will last a lifetime!

“A Smithsonian Summer”

Session 1: June 30–July 3 (no camp July 4)
While imagining themselves at the Natural History Museum, the children will explore the ocean, insects, ecosystems, and geology.

Session 2: July 7–July 18
Next stop, the Air and Space Museum! At the JCCNV, the children will delve into the world of air and space travel, learning what it is like to work and live in space.

Session 3: July 21–August 1
A creative look at the National Gallery of Art will inspire research about great artists and different media, as well as the creation of amazing artwork.

Session 4: August 4–August 15
Lastly, we will imagine ourselves at the National Zoo where we will discover all of the different animals living there and learn about their natural habitats!
