Day Camp and Teen Program

The Gateways Children’s Program has earned its’ well known reputation for an atmosphere of excitement and joy due to their handpicked group of skilled and dedicated staff who are committed to creating a memorable experience for all children under their care. These vibrant and highly qualified counselors and camp directors work tirelessly to create a program that combines stimulating educational activities with exhilarating games, and thrilling off site trips with exciting in-house entertainment.

The Gateways Children’s Program is subdivided into the Pre-School Division which offers childcare for children ages eighteen months to five years old, the Day Camp Division which provides programming for elementary school age children, and the Teen Division which stimulates the young adults through thought provoking and interactive events. All Children’s Program activities and outings are timed to coincide with Gateways lectures, thereby enabling parents the freedom to enjoy the adult program, shows, and hotel amenities. Limited private babysitting services are also available, after hours, for a nominal fee and with arrangements made during registration.

We will have fully stocked games rooms available for the kids enjoyment throughout Pesach including ping pong tables, air hockey and pool.

Our cadre of speakers including rabbis Becher, Rietti, Shippel, Tatz and Glatstein will provide a Teen Program that is geared to inform, challenge and invigorate the young adults who spend time with us. When it comes to the young adults who attend a Gateways Seminar, our motto is, “We do not fit the teens into our program; we fit the program to our teens.”
