Summer Camp is a transformative experience that your children will remember for the rest of their lives. Every camper will discover, grow and learn within the supportive and safe environment that Camp J provides.

We offer two types of summer camp experiences:

1) Traditional Summer Camps include daily swimming, and a variety of specialty areas including sports, art, science, music, drama and much more.
2) Specialty Camps that range from cooking, sports, STEAM, theatre, dance and much more.

There is something for every camper, at every age!

Your Family Can Make a Difference!

Your family has an opportunity to be part of a wonderful and unique experience. Campers enrolled in our day camps are fortunate to experience the joy of Israel with our Shlichim (staff from Israel). They infuse our day camp programs with Israeli music, dancing, sports, food, language, trends and the inside scoop on Israeli life! Personalize the experience for your entire family by hosting one of our Shlichim for a few weeks in your home. Receive a discount on camp for hosting. For more information, please contact Mindye Mannel at mmannel@jewishlouisville.org.

The J is open and accessible to everyone regardless of age, race, religion, gender,
sexual orientation, 
national origin or special need.
