CAMP PROGRAM INFO: The Neil Klatskin Day Camp at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is a place for a child to have fun while growing and maturing through his or her interaction with others. We create a "communal group" where campers and staff participate together. Camp provides experiences that challenge the body, mind and imagination of each individual. Cooperation and communication within a highly supervised group setting ensures the most meaningful and exciting camp experience for each child. It is also at the Neil Klatskin Day Camp that children strengthen their Jewish identity. Staff members consider themselves partners in helping children increase their self-awareness, self-esteem and positive attitude toward adapting to the ever-changing world around us. Neil Klatskin Day Camp invites staff and campers to share in a warm, accepting and positive manner and to maintain our high standards and goals.
