Children’s Program​

Run by Rabbi Avi Frank and Mrs. Tziri Frank, our programs deliver a fun, educational, and stimulating experience for children of all ages.

Happy Kids, Happy Parents

Our devoted Gateways staff spends the whole year crafting the picture-perfect Yom Tov for your child, with endless opportunities to smile, laugh, and wonder.

Our full-time Gateways Preschool Program and Day Camp is like summer camp packed into 10 days. Led by Rabbi Avi and Mrs. Tziri Frank, the program caters to children ages 2 to 16, and has a ratio of one counselor to every four children. With loads of activities on the resort’s expansive grounds and off-site Chol HaMoed excursions to local attractions, your kids will be busy all day with age-appropriate fun, educational, and interactive activities that focus on their needs, interests, and abilities.

There’s on-site water action galore, including a shallow wading pool for our littlest guests, a pool with a cascading water stream and a large, twisting water slide, and riverboat cruises. Creative productions put kids in the starring role: A children’s choir and Gateways Got Talent, both culminating in performances for parents. Then there are the themed carnivals; daily activities that include face painting, story-telling and bingo; a fully-stocked game room with ping-pong tables, air hockey, pool tables and endless board games; even pottery and painting classes for budding artists. And so much more — all timed to coincide with Gateways lectures, so parents can enjoy the adult program, shows, and hotel amenities.

Our nannies and counselors are available for private babysitting after hours for a nominal fee.
