Jookender Summer Day Camp in Framingham, MA for 5-12 y. o.

Welcome to the Jookender Summer Day Camp 2023! Can’t believe we’re almost there! This year, the camp is going to be really unforgettable!

Jookender provides fun-filled, exciting and innovative summer programs that are rich with activities and grounded in Russian-Ukrainian-Jewish traditions. Our flexible activities and academic environment, both make for all-compassing experience. Our Expert staff recognizes each campers’ strengths to support the growth of our younger campers while building character in our older ones. Campers thrive in our structured environment complete with small groups, daily routines, and a consistent learning program. Ideally, we’ll put together 3 groups of 8 people in each, by age: 6-7, 8-9, and 10-11 y.o. Outdoor activities, meals, and field trips are happened for all children together, however, academic classes are separate by the age group. We will also be teaching children some independence. They would learn to prepare simple meals, serve the table, clean up, and share.

Lunch is provided by Natalia Goldfain Catering service. Gluten FREE option will be included, if you mention it in the registration form. Please, mention all other diets and allergies in the "Any allergies and special accommodations" field, so we are able to honor them. We generally cook without Nuts, however, we’re NOT a nut-free facility. We will always have a lactose-free milk in addition to regular milk, water, and juices. For snacks, we will always have organic fruits, yogurts, drinks, and chips. However, you’re welcome to bring your own food.

We will be inviting animal shows visiting us, so keep this in mind if your child is allergic to animals.

We’re not an accredited camp and don’t have an RN on premises. If your children are not feeling well, extremely homesick, or don’t behave properly, they will be sent back home. If your child has any severe allergy, for anything - please, provide us with an epi-pen for this child. It's your responsibility to provide one, as well, as letting us know about any such situation. In the last week before the camp starts please, scan both sides of your child's medical card insurance and dental insurance (if any) and email this info to us
