Parents Are Always Welcome!
Parents are always welcome to drop into Summer Camp at anytime.

Everyone is welcome at Camp

JCC summer camps encourage diversity. Campers of all backgrounds are welcome regardless of race, faith, or national origin. We believe in teaching responsibility, cooperation, community, and service in a way that goes hand-in-hand with splashing in the pool, enjoying the perfect popsicle and shouting a camp cheer. Jewish values and culture are integrated into our programs in a manner that appeals to parents and children of all faiths and backgrounds.

The Jewish Community Center of Omaha’s summer camp is proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association. Developed exclusively for the camp industry, this nationally recognized accreditation focuses on program quality, health and safety, requiring us to adhere to their strict standards for a safe, enjoyable and enriching camp experience for each and every participant.

Israeli Counselors - Housing Needed!
This summer we will welcome a Shaliach (Emissary) from Israel to help us lead camp. Shlichim enrich the experience for all campers, with Israeli cultural activities and special projects. Just as these young adults bring Israel to our summer camp, they can do the same in your home. If you would like the opportunity to host our Shaliach, please contact Megan Webb at Shlichim typically arrive mid-May and stay through early August. Optimal hosting sessions are 2-3 weeks.

Additional Camp Information
Additional information on what to bring, our Water & Swim Safety Policy, and our Lunch & Food  Policy can be found in the parent camp manual. The manual will be mailed out / available for download in early May. If you have any questions before the manual is sent, please call Megan Webb at (402) 334-6409.
