Download the 2019 Summer Camp Brochure here!

Everyone is welcome at Camp
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.

Accreditation & Staff
The Jewish Community Center of Omaha’s summer camp is proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association.
Our staff completes over 25 hours of training, including American Red Cross Safety, CPR, and First Aid workshops. 

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.
