The Day Camps @ The J Story

With Day Camps@The J’s unique environment, our campers learn life skills while playing sports, creating art projects and testing the limits on our adventure course. Our camp experience is the perfect place for campers young and old to learn social skills and emotional intelligence, helping campers develop into adults who succeed in life. CAMP YOUR WAY Families have the flexibility to choose which weeks work best for them Campers have the freedom to select their own electives ABOUT OUR PROGRAM Day Camps@The J offers modern, innovative programs that engage campers and encourage them to learn new skills and discover their talents. Our curriculum is designed to help uncover their interests and passions by giving them opportunities for safe and positive risk-taking. THE CAMP DAY Campers enjoy our hybrid curriculum of traditional day camp experiences and elective-based programming. Traditional day camp activities include daily group-based programs in the morning. In the afternoon, campers participate in week-long electives, giving children the ability to choose specialty programs and benefit from in-depth experiences. Elective activities are tailored to each age group, and as campers grow from year to year, the program grows with them, offering new and exciting activities. EXCEPTIONAL SWIM PROGRAM Day Camps@The J utilizes the JCC’s renowned team of professional swim instructors and a swim program with a results-driven approach. Campers enjoy two swim sessions each day – instructional swim in the morning and free swim in the afternoon. Parents are kept in-the-know with weekly swim progress updates. All of our lifeguards are American Red Cross Certified and supervised by the JCC Aquatics Director.

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
