The children board buses to swim at a beautiful, clean local pool where they have approximately a one hour long swim lesson, a minimum of twice a week, with professional, warm instructors. The children learn a lot and have a wonderful time. The swimming pool is supervised at all times by certified life guards. There is no additional cost for the swim instruction program.
My name is Yosifa Book and I am the director of Camp Ashreinu.
I have a Bachelors degree from Yeshiva University and a Masters degree in Early Childhood Education from Hunter College. I have more than ten years of experience as a classroom teacher and an additional ten years of experience as director of Camp Ashreinu.
When I first moved to Bergen County, I sent my young children to a backyard day camp for the summer. I was not very satisfied with the safety of the children in unfenced backyards, out in the suffocating heat for many hours a day. I also found that there was not a great diversity of activity. And so, Camp Ashreinu was born. Everything at Camp Ashreinu was established with my own children in mind. The camp’s key elements are (1) a safe, secure and nurturing, environment, (2) a structured, educational program and (3) warm and experienced staff.
Thank you for considering Camp Ashreinu.
