The Camp JCC Story

Camp JCC is a unique Jewish day-camp experience that is open to all rising Kindergarten through rising 10th grade. Camp JCC is located on a beautiful 30-acre campus in the heart of North Raleigh. Each one-week session is an adventure — filled with swimming and sports, cooking and crafts, nature and boating, dance and music—and ending with the celebration of Shabbat. Camp JCC is divided into four units: Rishon (rising Kindergarten), Keff (rising 1st-4th grades), Sayarim (rising 5th-9th grades) and Hadracha (rising 10th grade). Rishon is specifically designed for the developmental needs of rising Kindergarteners and led by local preschool professionals. Rishon campers enjoy the full slate of daily camp activities delivered in an age appropriate manner. They enjoy air-conditioned bunks where they can rest and recharge. Keff offers campers traditional camp activities as well as the opportunity to design their summer experience with a host of activities including sports, art, nature, Israeli dance, boating and more! Sayarim -"travelers" in Hebrew - is an amazing summer opportunity meant to bridge kids’ experiences of traditional day camp with that of incredible trips. Sayarim will allow your tweens and teens to gain independence all while exploring new adventures, meeting new friends, and celebrating Jewish living. Sayarim travels to the best local and regional destinations to create an unforgettable summer. Our Hadracha - "leadership" in Hebrew - provides opportunities for rising 10th grade teens who want to further develop their leadership and communication skills by and instructing activities for young children. The Hadracha program will focus on how to become an effective and successful counselor. Our Camp JCC team is committed to giving your child quality experiences that will give them an unforgettable summer.

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."

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
