Some JCC Summer Camp Weeks Already Filled


If you want to get your child into summer camp at the JCC, you’d better act fast – several of the summer camps have sold out. But there are still plenty of opportunities for summer camp fun!

Camp enrollment has more than tripled over the registration numbers this time last year, said Mary Dooley, JCC program and camp assistant.

Camps that are full are the cooking camps for grades 1-3 and the Lego Minecraft camp for grades 1-3. Those camps now have a waiting list. There are still openings for cooking and Lego Minecraft for grades 4-6.

“This is the earliest we’ve waitlisted camps,” said Betsy Schwartz, senior director of camp and youth services. “And we have several that are on the cusp of being waitlisted because some camps can only accommodate a small number of campers.”

The reason camp is selling fast? Because last year was amazing!

“Campers had such a great experience last year, so they want to make sure they’re enrolled early this year,” Schwartz said. “We don’t want any kids to lose out on their first choice of camp, but our space is limited. Kids want what they want.”

Some of the specialty camps offered this year include The Mighty Titan Obstacle Course, Nutty Scientists, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, Clash of Bricks, Wiley Brown Basketball Camp, Water World, Spotlight Youth Musical Theater and more. Children with special needs can join the fun, too, with our Yachad program.
