Parents: Join us for an open house at Villa Duchesne on Sunday, April 23 from 9:30 am - 10:30 am. Leslie Wolf, Director of Family Education, and Jill Epstein, Camp Shook Director, will be there to greet parents who'd like to see this year's camp location. 



Camp Shook is a premiere Jewish preschool camp for children ages 18 months to 6 years.  Your camper will have an amazing summer at our spacious facility located on the grounds of Congregation Temple Israel. Campers are grouped by age, with each group having a “home base” in one of our air-conditioned, themed classrooms. Campers also spend plenty of time outdoors. 


We start each morning by gathering around the flagpole for morning songs and group cheers. Outdoor activities include sports and games, nature studies, playground time, water play, and YMCA certified swimming instruction in our onsite, in-ground pool for children ages 3 and older. Our camp day also includes art, music, science and plenty of free play. All camp groups are staffed by certified teachers and an incredible group of teenage counselors who are carefully chosen based on their high energy and love of children.
