Summer is a time of exploration, adventure, and making lifelong memories. For children in Bergen County, NJ, the Neil Klatskin Summer Camps at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades offer all this and more.
A Community Rooted in Positive Values
Neil Klatskin Summer Camps are more than just a place to spend the summer. They are a community rooted in positive Jewish values, dedicated to providing children with opportunities to explore their interests, stretch their abilities, and develop a love for the outdoors.
Exceptional Facilities for a Rich Camp Experience
The camps are situated on a sprawling 21-acre property, featuring three heated pools, a water park and splash pad, sports fields, tennis courts, and basketball courts. For those seeking a thrill, there’s an exhilarating challenge course with a zip line. Multiple playgrounds ensure that there’s always a place for fun and games.
The camp experience extends indoors as well, with access to the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades’s air-conditioned facilities, including classrooms, gyms, racquetball courts, a kosher, nut-aware kitchen, dance studios, and a theater.
Diverse Range of Activities for All Interests
Neil Klatskin Summer Camps offer a diverse range of activities based on children’s interests. From Camp Katan for the little ones to the Leadership in Training Camp for older kids, there’s something for everyone. Specialized camps like the Sports Camp, STEAM Camp, Dance Camp, and Drama & Comedy Camps allow children to delve deeper into their passions.
Practical Amenities for a Comfortable Camp Experience
In addition to the fun and learning, the camp experience includes practical amenities like a kosher catered lunch, daily snacks, and towel service. Mini challahs are sent home each Friday to welcome Shabbat. Express busing from New Jersey and Manhattan is included, and limited door-to-door busing is available.
More Than a Camp, A Community
Neil Klatskin Summer Camps are not just about the activities; they’re about creating a nurturing environment that embraces all campers and staff alike. It’s a home away from home where everyone is invited to be part of their C.I.R.C.L.E.S. (Community, Inclusion, Respect, Charity, Love, Empathy, Spirit)
The Neil Klatskin Summer Camps Experience
At Neil Klatskin Summer Camps, we believe in the power of summer camp to transform lives. We see it every summer: children arrive on the first day, unsure of what to expect, and leave at the end of the season with new skills, new friends, and a newfound confidence.
Our campers learn to swim, play new sports, create beautiful art, and explore the natural world. But more importantly, they learn about themselves. They discover their strengths, overcome challenges, and learn to work as a team. They learn to respect others and the environment. And they have a lot of fun in the process!
