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.
Safety and security come first in all of our camp settings. Full-time JCC professionals provide ongoing security training for counselors, specialists, and unit heads throughout the summer.
In addition to J&R Day Camp and Noar/Bogrim Travel Camp, we offer Traditional Day Camp, Early Childhood, Performing Arts and Specialty Camps at our Squirrel Hill and South Hills facilities.
Major funding for JCC camps is provided by The Philip Chosky Charitable and Educational Foundation, Massey Charitable Trust, the Morris and Fannie Skilken Foundation and The Edith L. Trees Charitable Trust.
