In the spring of 1926, the Jewish Community Center of Omaha opened its doors and introduced the city to a new type of community center. It was a place where members of all kind were given the unique opportunity to associate with each other through social, cultural, recreational, and educational programming. The popularity of the JCC grew rapidly. In 1974, we moved our facility from its original 20th and Dodge location, to an expansive area “out west” that would accommodate the growth of future generations. That focus on the future, combined with the opportunities of a new location, gave way to a contemporary type of dynamic youth programming: JCC Summer Camp.
Now, thousands of campers later, the Jewish Community Center of Omaha Summer Camp has evolved into one of the premiere programs in the city. Our safety protocol, Camper-to-Counselor ratio, and professional staff all adhere to the highest level of standards possible, which is why we were awarded certification by the American Camp Association. Our staff completes over 25 hours of training, including American Red Cross Safety, CPR, and First Aid workshops. Our programs have been voted “Best of Omaha” and we continue to expand and develop our services every summer. We take our role as a community resource very seriously and every day we work to ensure that the welfare and happiness of our members remains our top priority. We continue to honor the past by adhering to the mission of providing a positive Jewish environment in which members of all kinds can experience a variety of programming, and we look forward to the future by welcoming new generations. Now it’s your child’s turn to experience the programs that have provided so many with lifelong memories and friends.
