A Kaleidoscope of Activities

From sports and arts to cooking and nature exploration, our array of activities is designed to cater to every interest and inspire new passions. Our experienced educators lead these programs, ensuring each activity is not only fun but also enriching. We also infuse our activities with Jewish values like kavod (respect) and ahava (love), reinforcing important life skills.


Choice-Based Activities at ITC: Empowering Independent Thinkers

At ITC, our philosophy is to cultivate independence and personal growth. We encourage our campers to choose activities that align with their interests, fostering a deeper engagement and a more enriching experience. Kids campers get to choose 4 times a day which activities they want to participate in. Our program ensures a summer filled with adventure, learning, and fun, tailored to every camper's interests.
