Welcome to Camp Shemesh, our summer camp experience for kids ages 2-5! At Camp Shemesh kids have the opportunity to experience a world of fun and engaging programming including art, music, movement, swimming, and play. Activities are designed to strengthen age appropriate skills such as listening, sharing, group play, coordination, and motor skill development.

Camp Shemesh is held at the Pennie Z. Davis Child Development Center (CDC), is led by our professional staff of early childhood educators, and is open to JCC Members only. Children do not have to be enrolled as a CDC student to attend camp. Campers ages 3 and up that are not potty trained need to bring a swim diaper.
