Trying to lock-in summer plans for your preschool-aged child/children? Register for Camp K’tona today and your child/children will journey on an “Environmental Expedition.” Campers will be fascinated as they explore the desert, rainforest, Arctic/Antarctic, ocean and many other wondrous habitats!

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 have many more fun-filled adventures, making new friends and creating memories that will last a lifetime!

June 29–August 14 (7 weeks): Open to the public.

August 17–28 (2 weeks): Open only to current ECLC families enrolled in our 2014−2015 full-time childcare program and families beginning full-time in the summer for the upcoming 2015-16 year. (Please contact a member of our administrative team for details).
