JCC Summer Camps provide a commitment to the highest quality camping experiences within unique Jewish environments. Campers are encouraged to learn new skills and master old ones, to make decisions, take responsibility, be independent, respect others, form lasting friendships built on memories and most of all…have fun. Campers develop a deeper understanding of and appreciation for Jewish heritage and traditions while also developing a true sense of community. JCC Summer Camps provide a safe nurturing environment where campers gain self esteem, confidence, learn new skills and tackle new challenges. We encourage campers to try new activities and gain a love for the outdoors with meaningful Jewish experiences.
A summer at the JCC is spent immersed in daily camp life highlighted by dynamic and innovative programming. Activities include swimming, sports of all kinds, music, nature, Israeli culture, and Judaics. Every Wednesday has a special theme with exciting activities related to the weekly theme. Campers will experience Maccabi Games, an Olympic-style sports program that encourages team work, team building, sportsmanship, where they can interact in an atmosphere of fun and physical fitness.
JCC Summer Camps offer many options and flexibility. Campers can sign up for a minimum of two weeks up to eight weeks with a three day and five day option. JCC Summer Camps impact more than 700 campers and staff every summer.
