Before-and-After Care - NOW AT CAMP AND AT THE JCC!!

Children enjoy supervised free play and other organized activities on the campgrounds or in the JCC's gymnasium. Before-Care begins at 7:30 a.m. and After-Care lasts until 6:00 p.m. Parents are responsible for drop-off and pick-up. Children at the JCC are transported to and from Camp.
Supervised, Small-Group Environment
We limit total enrollment to ensure that each child will benefit from our well-supervised, small-group environment. Each child is encouraged to learn and grow at his/her own pace with support from caring, mature staff. Specialists enhance our waterfront, arts & crafts, music, theater, dance and computer programs, and are selected for their abilities to engage children of all ages. Parents receive weekly updates on their child's progress throughout the summer.
Scenic Camp Grounds
Located on 19 acres of scenic woodland in Croton-on-Hudson, Camp Discovery offers a fully equipped country setting.
Membership to the Rosenthal JCC
Children enrolled at Camp Discovery also benefit from an individual membership to the Rosenthal JCC throughout the year. Children can participate at reduced fees in a wide range of other activites at our main campus in Pleasantville and at our Yorktown branch.
JCC Camp Bear Ridge for children ages two through five provides the outdoor activities and exploration that are the hallmark of summer, yet with air-conditioned classrooms, gym and dance studio for inclement weather and indoor activities. Each day we offer a variety of fun activities, such as nature, dance, sports and arts and crafts, plus time running through our sprinklers - and for children who are potty trained, our water slides. Each week features a different theme, and the daily activities follow that theme. Jewish customs and traditions are woven throughout the program. Field-trip adventures spice up camping for the four- and five-year old groups. Choose any four to eight weeks that are convenient for you and your child.
Camp Katan at our Yorktown Branch creates magical and unforgettable experiences for campers ages 2 through 5. Our small groups and highly trained early childhood staff make this camp unique. Each week, campers participate in arts and crafts, music, movement, creative play and Shabbat, all centered around changing weekly themes. Plus, we welcome special guests, who bring added fun and excitement. Guests may include a magician, animal guests, a police officer and more.
The Rosenthal JCC's air-conditioned pre-school classrooms provide a "cool" setting for activities. Our safe, fenced-in playground is equipped with a large shaded sandbox, water tables and sprinklers for daily use.
