At Camp Zion, we welcome children aged 2-5, in diapers or using the toilet.  A “Theme of the Week” will complement our regular camp activities and culminate on Friday as we celebrate Shabbat together!   

You do not need to be Jewish to attend Camp Zion.  We model and integrate the values that are common across religions - being a good person, sportsmanship, “random acts of kindness,” social action, and awareness. Children of diverse faiths and cultures participate in our camp programs and are exposed to Jewish and Israeli culture.

In our beautiful air–conditioned preschool in River Forest, our summer program is a fun filled experience staffed by the same educators as during the school year.  Our caring staff of highly qualified preschool teachers is dedicated to creating an environment where your child will explore and share adventures in sports, music, cooking, arts, and nature.

Half day or full day?  One month or three?  Create the program that works for your family. We welcome campers between 7:30am and 6pm (to 3:30pm on Fridays).
