School Year Supervision, Enrichment, & Day Camps - 510 Families

School Year Supervision, Enrichment, & Day Camps

Due to statewide distance learning to kick off the school year, we’re all getting a little creative. Here is a list of programs offering daytime supervision for distance learning along with recreation and enrichment to support working parents and the kids we love (for a minimum of 3 hours).

You might also be interested in in-person classes, online classes, or pandemic pods.

Please drop any other publically available daytime supervision and study hall support in the comments (like not your backyard pod, please)!

Thanks to Bladium Study Hall, East Bay Dance Center, Kids Gym Berkeley, Galileo at Home, and Trackers for sponsoring our Guide to Daytime Enrichment and Supervision for East Bay kids.

    The Program We All Need…
    November 16 – December 18 | Monday – Friday | 1:30 – 5:30 PM

    Get ready for a socially distanced, in-person After School Program for 1 – 5 graders. Kids need a place to gather, play, create, and explore, especially in challenging times like these. Let’s safely gather our children together in community to find new and inspiring ways to spread collective kindness on the farm!

    What Will We Do Together?
    Daily activities include gardening, feeding the chickens and collecting eggs, stories, arts and crafts, nature connection activities, and more! We will approach everything through the lens of Jewish tradition and storytelling, whether it be through our shomrei adamah (protecting the earth) farm activities, or eco-mitzvot (good deeds) songs. We will open and close each day in our respective pods with circle time, storytelling, and acts of love and kindness. Each day will end with a closing circle, Kindness Report, and, on Friday’s, a circle to welcome in Shabbat.

    We Are COVID-19 Ready!
    There will be two 10 participant pods on the farm, 20 spots in total. Kids will be in ‘stable’ groups of 10 kids and two counselors that do not mix with the other pod on the farm (if siblings attend, we will place them in the same group despite age differences). Pods will remain as stable as possible for the duration of camp. Each pod will have their own specified outdoor spaces. Campers and staff will operate at a distance of at least 6 feet from any other group or staff on the farm. We all will be wearing masks, frequently hand-sanitizing and hand washing. All participants, staff, and participant families are required to follow Urban Adamah’s COVID-19 agreements.

    Program Costs & Accessibility!
    We are committed to offering programs to all families in our community in these uncertain times. For this reason, and out of an awareness that people are being differently financially and otherwise impacted by COVID-19, we have financial aid to provide 3 participant spots for free! Participants will be selected on an as needed basis.

    Please share the Urban Adamah magic with your friends and family. If you have any questions please email the Youth & Family Programs Director, Maddy Winard –
