Rishon is designed just for children entering Kindergarten. It offers children a chance to be a part of an authentic, “big kid” camp experience within the safety of a nurturing unit all their own. Rishon is staffed by early elementary school professionals, all of whom are chosen for their ability to work with young children. Rishon campers have an air conditioned home base and get the pool all to themselves twice a day for both instructional and free swim.
