Judaic values are the heart of all our summer experiences, and are the thread that connects us to one another and to each experience.

Camp at MJP

Based on the idea that children have a hundred languages, we are prepared for a challenging, explorative and fun summer. We offer children an opportunity to engage in both outdoor and indoor experiences and explorations, while each child finds a place for his or her interests. Our focus is on how we spend our summer days:

Art, Dance, and Music
Summer is the perfect natural landscape for expressive languages.

Organic Gardening
All gardening preparations: soil, seedlings, harvesting and cooking with the food we grow.

Children will prepare delicious and nutritious dishes to share and enjoy with their friends.

Children develop skills and learn sports, such as basketball, hockey, T-ball and more.

Water Activities
Children experience water through an array of creative water toys and games. Mequon Jewish Preschool is an affiliate of Lubavitch of Wisconsin.
