Premiere Youth Camps provide the opportunity for kids to explore all of the things they are interested in. Programming is based around popular activities and trends that kids LOVE!  Premiere Youth Camps run 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Camp participation is determined by the grade your child will enter in the Fall of 2018.

K-7th grade campers who are registered for a specialty Premiere Camp (Youth, Sports, or Dance) in the morning have the option to attend J Camp in the afternoon. Campers who participate in the Half Day Add-On will attend their specialty Premiere Camp in the morning and then be escorted by a counselor to the appropriate Day Camp. Before and After Care options are available to those participating Premiere Camps and Half Day Add-Ons.

Mandatory Medical Forms
Parents MUST complete a 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. The Health Form should be updated every year. Download the Youth Health Form here and the Medication Form here.
