Camp Kayetz
June 17 to July 12, 9:00 AM–3:00 PM
Camp Kayetz is Temple Beth El's own day camp. It's not sports camp.
It's not music camp; it's not art camp; it's not drama camp; it's not beach camp.
It's ALL of these, and so much more! It's all-inclusive FUN and it supports our kids' Jewish identities at the same time.
Get information and the registration form here.
