Summer Programming @ Camp Naivelt

Every year our programming committee and cultural director work to develop and deliver a rich summer schedule of activities for the community. Traditionally most programming takes place on weekends, with some week long offerings, various pop ups, and Sunday bagel brunches with guest speakers on a variety of topics of interest to the community. In addition, Naivelters are fortunate to have weekly aquafit class in the Eldorado Park pool.

We are encouraging Shule families to join us this weekend too! If you want to stay the weekend we will help you figure that out.

Sikuris St. Lawrence music performance (August 10)

Sikuris St. Lawrence is a Toronto  based collective group of Latin American musicians who brings much more than a note of authenticity to the rich music of South America. Their virtuosity on a wide variety of instruments, their mastery of lively rhythms and their joy making traditional and original music will be on display in each song. The band invites you to a musical journey through the sounds, rhythms and music from South America, focusing on the rich music from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Colombia and Venezuela, performing traditional and original compositions utilizing pre-columbian and modern day instruments.
