Neil Klatskin Day Camp at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades Holds Early Bird Special

The Neil Klatskin Day Camp (NKDC) at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is offering an early-bird special, where families who register for the full eight weeks of camp by Friday, January 15, will save $240 on camp fees for a summer adventure of non-stop fun. At NKDC, campers enjoy the outdoors, learn new skills, make new friends and explore their personal interests. Program highlights include dynamic, age-appropriate programming in sports, Red Cross instructional and recreational swim, Tae Kwon Do, yoga, art, drama, music, Judaic programming, special events and more. The all-inclusive camp also provides lunch, snacks, towel service and camp swag, so it’s easy on parents, too.

The NKDC takes place on a beautiful 21+ acre campus that features three pools, a sprinkler park, sports facilities, a low ropes course with zip line, indoor rainy-day facilities and more. Children ages 3 and 4 are home-based in air-conditioned classrooms with head counselors who are certified teachers. Registration options include four weeks in a row (first or last four weeks) as well as five, six or seven weeks. NKDC offers children with special needs the opportunity participate, too!
