Home » Camp »  J Camp: K-7th Grade

For campers who want a well-rounded day camp experience, J Camp provides a little bit of everything. Based mostly outdoors in our Day Camp Pavilion, activities include arts and crafts, sports, nature, cooking, science, Israeli culture and team building. Along with trying new things with one’s camp group, each camper, second grade and above gets a choice activity (chugim) each week, where they participate in special programming like ceramics, team sports, cooking and more! Kindergarten and first grade groups participate in swim lessons three times per week (unless otherwise noted). Each week all campers will experience an off-site field trip, an on-site field trip or an undernight. Before & After Care is available.

Mandatory Forms
Parents MUST complete a Discipline Policy, Youth Health Form and Medication Form (for each child) and return it to the JCC Youth Department on or before the first day of camp.
