About Our Camps

 

Making Summers Unforgettable!

Camping empowers children to build confidence, self-esteem and develop physically and emotionally through focused activities, group interaction, and a connection with nature.

Camp staff members serve as role models through their personal investment in a child’s growth and self discovery.

For three generations, JCC Day Camps have been a special place for children ages 3-16. This exciting tradition continues each summer when hundreds of campers enjoy an extraordinary experience of fun, friendship, and learning.

JCC Day Camps support children on a journey of self-discovery as they develop new skills and confidence. We promote a positive sense of Jewish identity, and encourage Jewish values for all children such as helping others, welcoming others, and respecting nature.

Learn more about JCC Day Camps at our 10th Annual Free Family Fun Night event on Sunday, January 17, from 4-6 pm.
