Children Experience the Miracle of Nature at JCC Day Camps

Posted by JCC Day Camps on April 24, 2019

Children have an innate affinity for nature, sensory play and experiential learning that we see every day at JCC Day Camps. The Torah teaches us a lot about the importance of nature. From the start, the book of Bereshit details God’s creations of heaven and earth. Each time God created something in this epic beginning story of the world, the Torah says, v’erah elokim ki tov or God saw that it was good.

“Send them to camp.”

Posted by Lewis Sohinki on April 18, 2019

Camp is special in creating opportunities for learning and growth for children. At camp, we provide an environment where each child has the ability to strengthen and build on becoming the best versions of themselves. Now, as the Director of our Squirrel Hill Day Camps, I have the unique opportunity to pay it forward and offer the same life-learning opportunities to others throughout our community.

Why I Chose Camp

Posted by Jason Haber on April 12, 2019

Following my junior year of high school I was told that it was time to become an adult, which meant getting a summer job. Within a few weeks of beginning my search for gainful employment, I was fortunate to have two options: the South Hills JCC Day Camp or Rite Aid on Bower Hill Rd. Rite Aid paid 25 cents more per hour, so as a typical teenager I was leaning towards taking more money. I envisioned all of the late night meals at Eat’n Park I could afford with the extra cash, but I knew in my gut that summer camp would provide a much more meaningful experience.

Parents often ask us, “Why should my child come to your camp?” or even, “Why should my child go to camp at all?” Simply put, summer camp makes children more resilient to life’s stresses and better prepared to meet life’s inevitable challenges.

Yalla Balagan: Teen Travel Camp – Re-imagined!

Posted by Hannah Kalson on March 13, 2019

Summer is an opportunity. It’s a time for kids to explore, to learn, to try new things, to have fun. It’s a chance for kids to spend time with old and new friends, and to find out a little more about who they are and who they want to be. This summer, I hope you will take the opportunity to join us for all this and more at the first year of Yalla Balagan, the reimagined teen travel camp at J&R.
