Tamir offers Keshet for Kids Summer Day Camp programming to Jewish children in our community with developmental and other disabilities. As always, the fun is contagious!

The premise for the camp is simple; pair each child with a high school or college aged ‘shadow' to work with them in a community camp of their choice. Tamir provides subsidy for the shadows and a coordinator to liaise with the host camp and help ensure successful integration and a great camp experience. Tamir may provide an internal camp experience depending on need and availability of funds,

No matter the environment, we will work with the child, family and host camp to help bring friendships, fantastic fun and a great summer camp experience!

We are grateful for the support of the Jewish Federation of Ottawa and donations to Tamir, our primary sources of funding for this program. For more information on Keshet for Kids, contact Estelle Allen at 613-851-7476 or at
