Check Out JCC Summer Camp 2011

The calendar may still say February, but summer will be here before you know it. That means it’s time to think about Summer Camp at the Jewish Community Center.

To help you choose the program that is right for your child(ren), come to the JCC Summer Camp Open House on Sunday, March 13, from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Bring the children with you, because there will be activities for them while parents learn about camp. You can even save some money if you’re a JCC member, because if you complete your registration by March 14 at 5 p.m., you’ll get an early bird discount.


Summer Camp at the JCC offers a wide variety of programs for children from 16 months old through eighth grade. The program runs from June 13 through August 12, with activities from 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m.

Swimming is an important part of the program, and all campers in K-5 swim at least once a day. General camps for preschoolers and K-3 include swim lessons, free swim/water play, art, sports, movement, dress up days, special events and more.

There are also specialty camps for children in K-6. Choose from theater, dance, art, Legos, horseback riding, basketball, soccer, football and travel. Middle schoolers can choose from travel, community service and adventure camps.

All camps also incorporate Jewish values, as campers are encouraged to perform acts of kindness during camp, participate in service projects and learn about the charity of the summer.

JCC Summer Camp staff are dedicated and responsible individuals who work hard to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their charges while creating the magic that is camp.
