Performing Arts

Dance, theater and music come together with the fun of camp and friends!

Building on our well-established performing arts experience, the new JCC Performing Arts Camp (JPAC) will bring out the talent in every camper and let it shine!  

It’s been 5 great years since Camp Yachad started offering a performing arts specialty camp...a perfect time to expand and enhance our program!

  • The JPAC day kicks off with a spirited Boker Tov (good morning) at the JCC then off to Wardlaw-Hartridge for a day filled with performing arts!

  • Campers will get professional instruction in dance from Dancers Pointe, theater and music in the morning, and then they will focus on one of those choices during the afternoon – all in a fun, light-hearted camp

  • We want to be sure everyone has a great performing arts experience, makes great camp friends and builds confidence so campers are grouped by age. Downstagers are in 2nd – 4th grades and Upstagers are in 5th – 8th.

  • Built-in recreational sessions including Project Adventure, field games, recreational swim and specialty classes (yoga, makeup techniques, comedy, costume design) round out each week.

  • Two dynamic, creative 4-week sessions culminate in an entertaining theatrical performance open to all camper families.

  • Get this…lunch, snacks and door-to-door transportation are included!

  • We go back to the JCC on Friday afternoons for a Rockin’ Shabbat celebration at the end of each week featuring our own band, the Shabbatones.

  • JPAC campers start their day at 9:00 a.m. and finish up at 4:00 p.m.
