See what parents are saying about Camp Chaverim 2016

“My daughter LOVED Camp Chaverim. It's months later, and she is still talking about her wonderful, warm teachers, her friends and the different activities she did. The magician was a highlight, and she loved yoga, sports, music, etc...The classrooms are so inviting and having the outdoor space for water play so accessible is a huge plus. We are all excited for her to return next summer!
-Parent of Beginning Camper

“Our twins loved their camp experience at Camp Chaverim – the diversity of fun activities, from music to yoga, art and soccer, among others really made each day special. The wonderful, warm, caring teachers were truly amazing and delightful – a very memorable summer indeed for our children.”
- Parent of Option A Camper

“Camp Chaverim has been a great way to keep our daughter familiar with the ECLC during the summer. I’m very confident that her positive summer camp experience will help with the transition to nursery school this fall.”
- Parent of Option A Camper

"My daughter had a wonderful experience at Camp Chaverim. Attending a different preschool, I was worried about her not knowing any other children and having difficulty making friends. The teachers were extremely helpful in integrating my daughter into the group. She loved the classroom so much that she didn’t want to leave when the summer ended!"
- Parent of Option C Camper

"Day Trippers was awesome! It is exactly the reason we are raising our families in NYC: for experiences, for culture, for the incredible access. The excitement on my son’s face when we told him where he was going each day was priceless, and then we loved hearing him explain how his day went! I’d absolutely recommend this program to anyone!”
