Summer’s Near: Enroll Now for Camp at the JCC

Passover is drawing to a close and Derby Festival is in full swing. That can mean only one thing: Summer is right around the corner! And if summer’s almost here, have you enrolled your children in Summer Camp at the Jewish Community Center?

Summer Camp at the JCC offers a wide variety of programs for children from 16 months old through eighth grade. There are even some specialty sports camps for high schoolers.


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