The The Jack and Pat Kay Centre Camp Story

The Jack and Pat Kay Centre Camp has provided a premium Jewish day camp experience for over 25 years and has successfully operated specialty camps for over 15 years at all its locations. The Jack and Pat Kay Centre Camp prides itself of being the “community” day camp and opportunities are provided to all regardless of the families’ financial situation. The Jack and Pat Kay Centre Camp experience is the ultimate equalizer, providing a neutral “playing field” for campers and staff to enjoy meaningful Jewish summer camp experiences and to learn and grow from each other. Campers are recruited as young as 12 months in a parent and tot program, while half day drop off programs begin at 2.5 years of age. Currently, camp is offered at two main locations (in Vaughan and Toronto) and the catchment area extends from Newmarket to downtown Toronto. Last summer over 1200 campers were engaged in Jewish day camping at The Jack and Pat Kay Centre Camp. In addition, 75 campers participated in Youngstars Hockey Camp, a specialty ice hockey program at York University, which is a Jack and Pat Kay Centre Camp and JCC Chai Sports collaborative program.

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
