June 28th - July 16th & July 19th - August 6th

The Gan will run an on-site, drop-off preschool summer camp for two three-week sessions, June 28th - July 16th and July 19th - August 6th (camp will be closed on July 5th in observance of the 4th of July holiday). Summer at the Gan will be geared towards socializing Gan HaYeled students with their soon-to-be September classmates and (re)acclimating them into the Gan, Adas, and the greater preschool community. See below for more information:

Each camp group will be based in an indoor preschool classroom and will spend large portions of their days outdoors. A typical day at camp will include morning meeting, free play, water play and/or hiking, snack, indoor story time and/or arts and crafts, playground time, and a good-bye meeting. Camp groups will celebrate Shabbat each Friday. The camp day will not include lunch or nap. 

Registration is now closed.

The Gan is a holistic community, a k'hillah,  grounded in the Jewish values, rituals, and practices of Adas Israel Synagogue. It is a part of all of us - the beating heart of our community of young families - and has been since the preschool opened in 1972. We know the Gan as a place defined by love for children and respect for their relationships. The Gan has never “only” been a place of education and caregiving but has long been a community hub through which children, families, and educators form lifelong friendships. The Gan is a place that impacts people's lives. 

We are leaning into those values - of love and respect for our children - and using them to create an expanded Gan ecosystem. Using the hallmark qualities of our cherished preschool, we are building a stronger, holistic community setting for our youngest children and their families to grow, connect, and thrive throughout the early years. The expanded Gan is envisioned as an ecosystem - a garden - in which each part complements and interacts with the other.
