The Shalom Children Activity Program to hold camping event on November 16th, 2019

Join the Shalom Children Activity Program for a fun camping event!

The Shalom Children Activity Program (SCAP), a year-long program sponsored by a collaborative partnership of South Shore synagogues and Jewish organizations, will hold its next event, “Classic Campfire Cookout, Singing & Storytelling,” on Saturday, November 16, 5:15-7:45 p.m. , at Temple Beth David of the South Shore, 1060 Randolph Street, Canton, and Ponkapoag Pond in the Blue Hills.

Families with children up to age 8 who are looking for fun, social, engaging activities infused by Jewish values and experiences are invited to a classic campfire with all the fixin’s. Has it been a while since you ate hot dogs and hamburgers, listened to stories, sang songs and ate s’mores by a nighttime campfire? Come breathe in the cool autumn air, enjoy ending Shabbat with Havdallah under the stars, and share this classic “love of the outdoors” experience with your child and other families with children.

The schedule: 5:45-6:15: Kosher hot dogs and hamburgers cookout with veggie option by request (BYO blanket or lawn chair); 6:15-7:00: short stroll down to Ponkapoag Pond for storytelling (nothing frightening!); 7:00-7:45: Sing classic and new campfire songs & make your own s’mores. Check-in is from 5:15-5:30. The program is free and begins at 5:30.

This event is for families with children up to 8 years old (siblings welcome) and is FREE, but registration is required. For directions, visit

This event has a maximum of 50 children, with priority by date of registration. Registration for this event is at: For questions or concerns, contact: [email protected] or visit our website at
