The Camp JCC Story

Camp JCC has been operating and creating great memories for over 40 years. We welcome campers entering grades 1 - 9. Campers are grouped by age. We offer 11 weeks of Traditional Camp offerings which include field trips, arts/crafts, swimming, swimming lessons, sports, music, dance, Israeli culture, science and more. Each week is themed-based with a fun session-ending Friday BBQ and theme-based party, concluding with a Shabbat program. We also offer over 20 specialty camp offerings, including Sports, Arts, Horse-Back Riding, Culinary Arts, Legos and more. Each camp will participate in swimming and other activities as well. All camps are open to JCC members and Non-members.

Why We Host Schlichim

"Hosting Shlichim during the summers remains a wonderful experience for our family. Each year we meet dynamic and fascinating young Israelis with whom we maintain contact long after the summer has gone. Our kids are the greatest beneficiaries of the experience, finding in the Shlichim individuals who they come to regard as older siblings. It is an event we look forward to every year with good reason and plan on continuing for years to come."

- Soberman Family, The Jack and Pat Kay Centre Camp, Prosserman JCC

Connecting with Israel

“Although it was so new, Israel brought upon me a familiar sense of belonging much like what I feel at Camp Chi every summer. The ability to be in a place where one feels so free and proud to be a Jew is a feeling that makes me so proud to be involved in my Jewish heritage.” - Joshua Krawitz, 17, Camp Chi, JCC Chicago
