The JCC Day Camp Story

We believe camp must be boundless freedom from the everyday where kids can safely explore new experiences, stoke a sense of adventure and make life-lasting friendships. Our programming for K through 6th graders offers exposure to a wide variety of activities, along with an opportunity for campers to choose what activity they want to participate in. Each day includes seven Activity Periods, which include a variety of specials including arts & crafts, music, drama, nature, adventure, athletics, Israeli culture, as well as hobbies and swimming. Jewish culture and values are infused throughout our program, through use of terminology, rituals, music and our weekly themes. It is presented in a manner to be accessible to all campers and staff, regardless of religious affiliation or cultural background.

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
