Best Summer Ever!

Grades 3 - 6

Signature Camps

Two-Week • 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Signature Camps are only available at Camp Keff! Campers splash in the pool every week for basic swim instruction, score goals during sports, create masterpieces in art and experiment in science. Camp-wide Olympics, and Shabbat Fairs are so unique
that no two sessions are the same. Add in field trips, giant inflatables, nature hikes, camping trips with s’mores, and your camper will see why Camp Keff is known for fun!


• Basic swim instruction three times a week
• Two-night wilderness camping trip to destinations such as Memorial Park and Del Valle Regional Park
• Field trip to Bay Area destinations such as Playland Not At The Beach, Berkeley’s Adventure Playground, and Aqua Adventure

Plus, campers get to choose a specialty track to give them more time in the activities they are most interested in. If you come for more than one session you can try a different adventure or stick to your favorite! Campers are grouped by their track so they can be with other kids with similar interests.

Choose Your Own Adventure Options:
Session 1: Sports or Nature & Science or Girls Only
Session 2: Sports or Nature & Science or Art
Session 3: Sports or Nature & Science or Girls Only
Session 4: Sports or Nature & Science or Art
