Katan is for children ages 2-4 years old. Information on this page is from summer 2014. Information on summer 2015 will be available in January.
Every day at Katan is an opportunity for laughter, discovery, and friendship.
Katan is a fun, stimulating, and nurturing introduction to a camp experience filled with hands-on, age appropriate activities. Activities include outdoor water play, arts and crafts, music, and games. Special onsite events include bounce houses, dance parties, animal programs, guest entertainers, and all camp Shabbat, as well as weekly “mystery” readers.
Swimming (ages 3-4)
Under strict supervision, three-year-olds will go to the JCC's Aquatics Center and enjoy a kiddy pool experience where they can splash and play to their heart’s content.
Campers in our four–year-old groups will be swim tested, placed into appropriate age/ability groups, and receive two “swim lesson” days and one “recreational swim” day each week.

Katan is licensed and operates as part of the APJCC Preschool. The staffing is separate from the K-10 camp staffing.
Many of our APJCC Preschool teachers serve as Camp Katan counselors. Our special staff is carefully selected for their superior educational background, professional experience, and warmth and sensitivity to young children.
