Please Read - Camp Shook 2020 Held at Villa Duchesne:
Temple Israel's Camp Shook will be hosted at Villa Duchesne this year as we start construction on Temple Israel’s education center. Having camp at Villa will allow us to serve all of our DECC families and campers as usual, just in a different location! The nearby campus, which is located just one mile south of Temple Israel at the corner of Spoede and Conway Roads, accommodates all of our summer camp needs including swimming, nature, and outside activities. Camp will be staffed by our beloved teachers and camp counselors as usual. The construction goal is to complete the project before DECC and Religious School reconvenes for the fall semester, so as not to interrupt our educational programs. Much planning is being done to ensure a successful, timely completion, and we are confident the projects and the alternative camp location has the best interest of our families at heart, and most importantly, the safety of our campers.

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.
