Mini Gan Campers Orientation

Mini Gan Campers (Toddler thru entering PreK) are invited to meet their Morahs on Sunday, June 26 from 2-4 PM. Please bring your child's supplies to drop off at orientation, as this will avoid the first day rush. (Please see parent handbook for a supplies list.)

Carpool

Drop off is from 9-9:30 AM and Pick up is from 3-3:30 PM. We have many more campers this year, with G-d's blessings, and it is imperative that everyone follow the carpool procedures carefully. Click this link to see a visual diagram of carpool procedures. Please pay attention and follow the instructions of Joe, our security officer, during carpool. DO NOT EVER PARK IN OR ABANDON YOUR CAR IN THE CARPOOL LINE. 

Transportation

We are very pleased to have been able to provide van transportation this summer. It has taken a tremendous amount of planning and effort but we now have 5 daily routes set up. Please click this link to see your routes and times. 

Early & After Care

Early care is daily from 8:30-9:30am  and After Care is from 3:30-4:30 pm. The early / after care room is in the playroom that is at the end of the building (past the gym). Check your account or contact the office to see if you are registered for early or after care.
