Camp JCC is Going on a Road Trip
Camp JCC is excited to spend Summer 2018 at both the Bender JCC and at the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School (CESJDS), lower campus. After a few successful summers of operating on both campuses, we want you to know that we have heard your suggestions and requests and have worked with CESJDS to make your campers’ experiences even better! Our campers, staff and families will have great flexibility in this convenient and great model.
Campers will have:
• More dedicated spaces and classrooms for camp
• More outdoor field space
• Outdoor basketball courts
• Increased carpool space
We are excited to be offering all of the signature aspects of Camp JCC that make our camp stand out, including:
• High quality programs
• Talented and dedicated staff
• Convenient location
• Aquatic activities in our NEW outdoor pool!
Summer Camp at the JCC: Our Approach
Every day at Camp JCC is packed full of activities, friendship, ruach (spirit) and adventure. While our campers rave that Camp JCC is “the best place ever” we know that spending a summer at Camp JCC provides opportunities to gain valuable skills. When campers earn their deep water bracelets, we know they are improving their swim skills while also increasing their self-esteem and confidence. When they try to cross the zip line for the first time, we know they are learning to take risks and make decisions for themselves.
Camp JCC provides programs that bring out the best in every camper and grow their abilities that they will use for the rest of their lives.
Camp JCC offers the opportunity for campers to gain valuable skills. Take a look inside to see the ways in which your child will grow this summer.
All Are Welcome
The Bender JCC embraces and welcomes the diversity of our community and encourages everyone to seek meaning and fulfillment by participating in our rich programming inspired by our Jewish heritage.
We open our doors to everyone, including people of all backgrounds, religions, abilities and sexual orientations, and interfaith couples and families.
Inclusion permeates our Center. Inclusion is belonging.
