What are the dates and hours of camp?
Katonim operates as a day camp from Monday to Friday, 9:00 to 4:30.
For 2023, each camper session is now two-weeks.
Camp sessions have been changed to two weeks so that there is simply more time to enjoy camp! Campers will have the additional time to fortify stronger connections to each other and the camp community; all while having increased opportunities to develop the many skills and make life-long memories and friendships.
Each session is a separate registration:
Session 1 – Monday July 3rd to Friday July 14
Session 2 – Monday July 14th to Friday July 28th
Session 3 – Monday August 31st to Friday August 31st
Session 4 – Monday August 14th to Friday August 25th
