The Shomrei Torah Day Camp
Our Day Camp will be open to ALL school-age kids Monday 10/16 through Friday 10/20 – 9am to 3pm. Free lunch will be served to everyone at noon. This is FREE and open to the entire community. Adults are welcome to stay all day. Volunteers will not be turned away. Come if you want to work with our children’s programming.
