‘Go green’ at PJCC summer camp

At the Peninsula Jewish Community Center in Foster City, green is on the menu this summer.

This year, it’s the littlest campers who will be adding an eco-friendly component to their days: PJCC campers ages 2-5 will enjoy environmentally themed entertainers, specialists and arts and crafts projects, all built around the theme of tikkun olam, repairing the world.

The camp, which starts June 23, will focus on the “three R’s”: reduce, recycle and reuse. Environmental entertainers such as the Banana Slug Band, the Earthcapades and Wild Things Inc. will make appearances at the camp.
