Maccabi Sports Camp - Entering1st to 4th grades

The perfect place for the young sports enthusiast!

Maccabi Sports Camp is the ultimate in sports day camping at the expansive Wardlaw-Hartridge School campus in Edison, NJ...minutes from the JCC!

H e r e ’ s  w h y  y o u ’ l l  h a v e  a  B A L L . . .

  • The day kicks off with a spirited Boker Tov (good morning) activity complete with birthday announcements, wacky camper contests, games and more at the JCC and then off to Wardlaw for a sports-filled day.

  • Professional instruction each day in multi-sports including soccer, baseball/softball, flag football, basketball, tennis and more.

  • Each day offers skill building and drills to learn the fundamentals and to develop strength and stamina – all led by professional coaches and our Camp Yachad senior counselor staff.

  • Fridays we’re on to competitive play with our Tournament Days, wacky races and contests!

  • Wardlaw’s campus includes wide open sports fields, tennis courts, indoor gymnasium and an indoor heated pool…and we get to enjoy it all!

  • Two swims each day…instructional at the JCC and rec swim at Wardlaw- Hartridge. (We’ve heard Camp Yachad parents throughout the years credit Camp Yachad swim instruction for making their kids strong swimmers!)
  • Back to the JCC to participate in special event camp days such as Wacky Water Day and Maccabiah (color war)…we wouldn’t even think of missing out on that fun!

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

  • PLUS campers will get one regular camp t-shirt, one reversible jersey, a camp duffle bag and water bottle.

  • A Rockin’ Shabbat celebration at the end of each week features our own band, the Shabbatones.

  • Maccabi Sports Campers enjoy camp Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
