Electives

What Are Electives?  

Electives mean that your child chooses (elects) the activities of his/her choice.

We recognize that, in today’s society, children face a wide range of value systems and social pressure, making it difficult for them to develop there own character and celebrate what makes them unique.

A CGI we advocate and celebrate children discovering and expressing their true Jewish selves by creating a liberating environment of love, fun and inclusion.


What Does That Look Like For Our Kids?

Children are welcomed into a world of talent and fun activity; a world of learning and innovation.

We facilitate for the kids to be themselves and express their character freely, while our staff cheer them on. The children have multiple activity options, with the freedom to choose between them and play as they wish. This enables them to explore while feeling included and safe.

We invest in kids’ boundless capability and goodness.

Communication

Your opinion matters to us.

Always feel free to ask us all your questions. Open communication of feedback, suggestions, or critique allows us to constantly improve and give our children the care they deserve.

The counselors fill out daily progress reports for each camper, and the director meets periodically with each counselor to discuss the well being of each child.

A Director will be available to talk to in person, during drop off and pick up. E-mail is an excellent way to communicate with us aswell!

Notices for parents will be communicated in two ways.
1. A flyer sent home with child. Please check with your children daily .
2. An e-mail to parents. Please make sure to check e-mail nightly.

Parents and campers can view photos and updates relating to camp activities on our webpage and Facebook page www.facebook.com/chabadalberta.
