JCC camps are all about personal growth, friendship and FUN! After more than 55 years, they've become synonymous with excellence in camping. At the J, we believe summer camp is the place to experience physical and creative activities, to try new things, and, to take a break from high-tech for some low-tech fun. Our camps offer an environment that promotes freedom and self-expression, a safe and special place where children can boost their self-esteem; a place where there is something for every child!
Our camps teach a strong sense of community by promoting mutual respect, sportsmanship, and team-building. Jewish values and cultural experiences integrated into regular activities teach children of all faiths and backgrounds tolerance and understanding through Shabbat celebrations, theme days, craft projects, games and stories.
Camp is only as good as its staff. Our administrators, counselors and CITs (counselors-in-training) are chosen for their ability to be positive role models, their sincere interest in children, and their experience in working with particular age and developmental groups. The low camper-to-staff ratio guarantees a vital, dynamic, personalized and well-supervised program.
Through a weekly online newsletter and dedicated Web site, each camper's family is kept abreast of all the fun and excitement!
