BACK TO SCHOOL
CBE KIDS, the after-school program at Congregation Beth Elohim offers children a wide variety of enrichment classes and recreational activities in a safe and caring environment. We believe that each child develops at his or her own pace. All of our enrichment classes are taught by teachers or experienced freelance artists. Some of our classes include: art, video, sewing, jewelry, bit bots, legos, instructional swim, circus arts, ballet, theater, and more. Our program is also available onsite at PS 295 and PS 39. Registration is on a trimester basis and is available online at cbebk.org/afterschool.
Meet the Director
Bobbie Finkelstein has been the director of Congregation Beth Elohim's, CBE Kids Camps for more than 20 years. She has a master's degree in social work, with a concentration in groups. "I feel that children learn so much from being in a group setting at camp. We empower them to be confident, caring group members,” Bobbie says. “The campers love the experience so much that they go on to become CIT's, assistant counselors, and head counselors as they get older. There is nothing more rewarding for a camp director than to see campers return as staff."
