Camp Sunday Open House and Information Meeting
Parents and children are invited to a Camp Sunday Open House and Information Meeting at the MJCCA (5342 Tilly Mill Road, Dunwoody), on Thursday, August 2, from 5:00 – 6:15 pm, to participate in a “Camp Sunday” activity and tour the beautiful MJCCA facility where this exciting new program will take place.
Rabbi Brian Glusman, MJCCA Director, Membership, Outreach and Engagement explains, “The new Camp Sunday program takes the Jewish experience one step further with a unique way for children to learn about and incorporate Jewish values and customs into their daily lives.”
Rabbi Glusman continues, “With predominately outdoor activities centered in, and around, the heart of the MJCCA’s Camp Isidore Alterman, campers will engage in many exciting, creative activities designed to help them learn through their experiences. Consider this the perfect introduction to an informal Jewish education, or the next logical step of your child’s Jewish preschool experience.”
