Dear Friends,

I’m Matt Martin, the Assistant Director of Camp Kef and also the Director of our KidsTime After-School Enrichment program at the J! While we’re relishing every moment of the camp experience this summer – soaking up all the fun and sun – we are also excitedly gearing up for an amazing school year ahead with KidsTime. I’m thrilled to announce that enrollment is open for the 2023-2024 school year!

We take great pride in providing a safe and nurturing environment where your children can thrive, explore new interests, and build lasting friendships. Our program is inquiry-based and child-driven, with daily clubs that cover a wide range of activities, from film and cooking to sports and art. Each activity is carefully designed to foster physical, social, and emotional development, taking into account the unique needs and abilities of the children in our care. Additionally, we offer a variety of special day programs and vacation programs throughout the year to keep the excitement going even during breaks!

We are proud to serve Penn Wynne Elementary, Merion Elementary, Perelman Jewish Day School, and the Robert J. Wilf Preschool and Kindergarten K1 and K2 Classes.*
