Three Kids ExperimentingAt Destination Science, we use science to prepare your child for life!
We make it fun and easy for kids to be excited, curious & confident about science! This early enthusiasm is a huge boost for our children that will help them both in and out of school. They appreciate and value the wonder of the world around them and take better care of it now, and as adults. Developing curiosity makes kids lifelong learners about everything.
Which side of the brain do experts say will be most important in the 21st century?
The RIGHT side, where we develop creativity, imagination, and the emotional intelligence needed to collaborate and develop great relationships with others. In all of our activities, we teach your child how to ask great questions and how to wonder. Every day provides opportunities to create new things and imagine. We even have a special time in the daily schedule for games and activities where your child will work with others to solve fun challenges and problems.
Some grown-ups didn’t have great experiences with science when they were kids. They may think it’s too hard, or boring, or only “just for some people.” Attitude counts a lot in achievement! Wouldn’t it be great if our kids grow-up with positive impressions about science because of the fun they had learning at camp?
Many of our campers will have their interest sparked in ways that motivate them to study more science with confidence and enthusiasm. It will encourage some kids to consider careers in science, engineering, and technology. The imaginative thinking that we develop is also necessary in design, art, music, and other creative fields. That’s good for them, and good for the world.
Why Kids Love DS
Girls Love Science!
—Our daughter loves to dress like a princess and twirl around and dance and now when she does that she spouts science facts like ‘Gravity keeps us to the earth!’”yellow-quote-small
—After attending the Astronaut camp, my daughter started making plans to visit Mars and Venus and other planets along with her kid brother. Thankfully, they have put off the plans to actually travel out until they are older.”
Boys Love Science!
—My son loved camp!!! He couldn’t wait to share what he learned each day when I picked him up. He said ‘this is the best camp ever.’ He was asking to attend again next year before the week was even over. Thank you for helping my son become so interested and excited about science.”
—My son walked into our bedroom at 5:30 a.m. all excited to tell us the difference about potential energy and kinetic energy! He is smitten by science and the curriculum really stuck with him! Thank you for that.”

Experimenting with art activities freely and without fear of making a mess or painting “outside the box” is right at the top of our gourmet menu of fine cuisine for the young and developing brain.
We encourage our young art students to express themselves freely without being inhibited by the traditional and outdated methods of engaging in art activities that are no more than the adult’s perception of what the art project should be or look like.
Coloring books, painting over adult manufactured stenciled pictures, staying within the lines are some of the No No’s in our studio. We recognize the detrimental effect that these traditional methods have on the child’s developmental process and how these methods stifle their creativity.
We Allow our students to create their own unique art as opposed to completing adult-made art projects. Every child is an artist: the problem is to remain an artist when we grow up” (Pablo Picasso)

From the Head of School
When The Abraham Joshua Heschel School was founded in 1983, a new model of Jewish day school was created. Named after one of the great Jewish leaders, teachers, and activists of the twentieth century, The Heschel School opened with a commitment to creating a pluralistic Jewish community dedicated to the values that characterized Rabbi Heschel’s life: intellectual exploration, respect, integrity, love of the Jewish people and tradition, and a commitment to social justice.
Today, from Nursery through Grade 12, our approach to education, pluralism, and our concern for students’ intellectual, emotional, and spiritual development continue to inform our daily interactions in our school community. Across our curriculum, we foster academic excellence, as well as a love of learning and exploration. Our program emphasizes critical thinking and supports the diverse talents of our student body.
All of us involved in the work of The Heschel School strive to cultivate the spiritual lives of our students and nurture their commitment to Jewish life. We help them understand and respect a range of Jewish practice, and we encourage them to embody these traditions in the way they live their lives as citizens of a diverse world community. We also engage our students in a meaningful relationship with the language, culture, land, and people of the State of Israel.
I hope that this website will begin to introduce you to the Heschel School, and all of us at Heschel look forward to meeting you when you visit the school to experience the culture and philosophy that are the hallmarks of a Heschel education.

Kids at Camp Jacobson are ACTIVE!
Your child’s regular schedule balances our 5 core programmatic components:
- Arts Enrichment
- Science & Nature
In the case of extremely warm days, we move to what we call a “Hot Schedule” with extended swims and increased activities in our air-conditioned facilities. On rainy days, we move to our “rainy day schedule” with increased indoor programming, full camp entertainment and even surprise trips for our older campers. Every Friday is a theme day at camp, so schedules are often adjusted to accommodate our specialty programming for each day.
The Chabad Preschool at Beekman Place is a small, intimate Jewish preschool in East Midtown whose mission is to provide a warm and nurturing environment where children can grow and develop emotionally, cognitively and physically. Based on the knowledge that the formative years of early childhood are vitally important, each child is viewed as a seed that we nurture with the utmost care; the seed’s every experience will shape and color the quality of its matured self. Our carefully crafted program is designed to provide children with the early foundation and framework necessary for the transition to elementary school and beyond. Children learn to develop the literacy, numeracy, reasoning, and decision making skills that form a foundation for school readiness. In addition, children learn socialization skills, build self- confi dence and develop the preliminary skills to explore and experience their world independently from their parents.
